Enhancing water management network with Diehl’s smart metering solutions

AURIGA AQUILADiehl Metering provides smart metering solutions through the intelligent networking of various devices into larger data platforms, aiming to create a better water management network

The stability and the quantity of available water play a vital role in promoting the development of sustainable economic activities.

In Africa, major challenges are participate sustainably and dynamically in the global economy, even though only five per cent of the continent’s potential water resources are exploited and the average available water volume per inhabitant remains at 200 cu/m (against 6,000 cu/m in North America), according to the United Nations report 2015.

Therefore, a better water management can reduce wastage and eliminate the risk of drought and the development of billing generates more responsible consumption of the main vital resource, said Diehl Metering.

Smart metering: a response to the issue of non-revenue water

Non-Revenue Water (NRW) is water which has been produced but subsequently “lost” before reaching the consumer. This can occur for various reasons including leaks, inaccurate measurements, fraud or poor management of water systems. In Africa, many countries are looking for solutions to fight against non-revenue water and to develop access to the drinking water.

With more than 150 years of experience and a presence in most countries around the world, Diehl Metering provides smart metering solutions through the intelligent networking of various devices into larger data platforms.

The solutions offer transparency for utilities, municipalities, industries and enable considerably increased efficiency in reading, billing and services processes.
