ANTWERP, Belgium - Danish metering solutions provider Kamstrup has won a contract to supply around 193,000 intelligent water meters to Antwerp city utility Water-Link.
Hydroko, a longtime partner of Belgian water utilities, awarded Kamstrup with what is the largest water meter contract so far for the Danish company.
The project will see Kamstrup provide its MULTICAL® 21 intelligent water meter integrated with the IoT communication technology Sigfox. In total, 1000 meters will be provided to start as part of a 12-month trial.
The rest of the meters will be installed towards the end of 2017, with the project due to be completed in 2021.
Water-Link project engineer, Jan Van Cappellen, said: “The intelligent water meter is the foundation for effectively managing drinking water in a sustainable manner.”
The aim of the metering project is for Water-Link to measure extremely low flows and detect leaks, bursts and tampering – ensuring water loss is discovered quickly.
