Itron Expands Work in Jordan to Address Non-Revenue Water

Jordan Water Company (Miyahuna) Signs Three-year Contract for Analytic Services and Additional Itron Static Water Meters

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. — March 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 frequency communication."

“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.”
