Romanian utility SC CUP Dunarea Braila selects Itron to reduce water loss

Published 16 March 2018

Itron has been selected by Romanian utility SC CUP Dunarea Braila SA to install nearly 30,000 of its Flodis/Flostar M water meters equipped with radio modules to address water loss.

CUP Dunarea Braila is the regional water and wastewater operator in southeastern Romania, which serves more than 280,000 people in 104 towns.

To modernize the current water infrastructure, the utility has decided to install Itron’s Flodis/Flostar M meter equipped with smart radio modules to replace the utility’s lower precision meters. With the support of local Itron partner Vestra (Elsaco Group), these meters will be deployed for residential, commercial and industrial customers.

Mobile data collection allows the utility to reduce meter reading time and cost, and avoid manual reading mistakes. Smart meters store and transmit enhanced, advanced data. The utility can use this precise information and data analysis to monitor water usage, reduce water loss, detect fraud and optimize water network efficiency.

CUP Dunarea Braila general manager Silviu Mangiurea said: “This project will enable us to improve water delivery to our customers. These meters will help reduce water losses due to leaks or measurement inaccuracies by providing accurate water usage data.

“We are pleased to work with Itron to update our infrastructure with technology to improve our operational performance and customer service.”

Itron EMEA sales vice president Mathias Martin said “Designed to provide accurate readings in tough conditions, the Flodis/Flostar M water meter will equip CUP Dunarea Braila to accurately measure water consumption and optimize reading processes.

“We are confident in the proven success of these meters, with millions in service around the world.”
