Iran Ensheab to trial Kamstrup’s water meters and remote reading system

Iran Ensheab and Danish technology company Kamstrup have signed a partner contract and an agreement of two pilot projects to adopt smart water metering.

Under the contract, Kamstrup’s intelligent water meters and remote reading system will be trialled by Iran Ensheab.

Kamstrup SVP Per Trøjbo said: “We are convinced that remote reading and ultrasonic metering will be able to help to solve some of the challenges in the Iranian water sector.

“With the intelligence built into our meters, the Iranian utilities can reduce waste by utilising the possibilities of remote reading their meters. In that way, they can also quickly identify where to optimise their network.”

With the implementation of modern technologies and technical cooperation with Denmark, the Iranian Government is seeking to strengthen the water supply network and aims to reduce the entire country’s non-revenue water to about 15-17%.

The water sector in Iran has been facing challenges due to scarcity and a high level of non-revenue water. The loss of non-revenue water in some areas of the country is up to 60%.

Per Trøjbo added: “In previous projects, we have experienced to half the non-revenue water by monitoring the network and detecting leakages, and we expect to see similar results in Iran.

“We are looking forward to introducing new technology to the Iranian water sector and help them optimise where needed.”

The contract was signed at the Iranian Ministry of Energy where Kamstrup, along with six other companies, represented the Danish Water and Waste Water delegation.
