Jordan Water Company (Miyahuna) Signs Three-year Contract for
Analytic Services and Additional Itron Static Water Meters
LIBERTY LAKE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 22, 2018--
Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), a world-leading technology and services
company dedicated to the resourceful use of energy and water, announced
today that Jordan Water Company (Miyahuna) has signed a contract with Al
Darb after an international bid to buy 76,000 ultrasonic meters and
software as part of Miyahuna’s strategic Non-Revenue Water (NRW)
reduction plan. The utility will use an Itron system, including static
metering technology, and take advantage of Itron’s analytic services for
three years to reduce water losses.
Miyahuna provides water and wastewater services to more than 670,000
customers in the Kingdom of Jordan, serving the provinces of Amman,
Zarqa and Madaba. The region faces challenges with water scarcity.
Across the country, harsh conditions and discontinuous water supply
disrupt metering data and delivery.
To address these issues, the utility will take advantage of Itron’s NRW
expertise, including advanced analytics to optimize water loss
reduction. It will install Itron Intelis ultrasonic water meters that do
not count air, which is key to address intermittent supply situations.
Designed for Middle Eastern conditions, the meter has no moving parts,
which ensures stability and accuracy over the entire lifetime of the
product. Additionally, it provides detailed meter data to analyze
network conditions and water consumption, detecting temperatures, leaks
or unusual usage patterns.
“Scarce water causes challenges and water loss for Miyahuna and its
customers,” said Imad Al Dahleh, Itron sales manager. “Addressing these
challenges, the Intelis meter is equipped with high-performing radio
“For Itron, this expanded work to reduce water loss in Jordan
demonstrates the continued success of our work with Miyahuna in Amman,”
said Mathias Martin, Itron vice president of sales, EMEA. “Harnessing
the power of our analytic services and ultrasonic water meters, Itron is
helping Miyahuna measure water with accuracy and providing highly
detailed analysis to reduce non-revenue water.”
