Liberty Lake, Wash., August 9, 2012 — Itron, Inc. won a contract for more than 11,000 advanced residential water meters equipped with communication modules, as well as the fixed network infrastructure to support customers in Floresti, Moldova.
Servicii Comunale Floresti, the water utility servicing several municipalities, will deploy Itron technology over the course of six months beginning later this year.
Itron's water meters will replace aging meters and will be installed on new subscribers' homes throughout the city. Consumption data will be transmitted through the fixed network. The automation of the entire meter reading process will greatly reduce operational costs and improve efficiency.
