US metering manufacturer Itron is celebrating the installation of one million water meter communication modules in the UK and Ireland. The one millionth device was installed for Yorkshire Water as part of a contract to deploy automated meter reading (AMR) services for residential and commercial customers.

The installation of the millionth Itron communication module takes the number of customers in the Yorkshire water region with AMR services to close to 50%.

Tony O’Shea, metering and leakage manager, Yorkshire Water said, “We are delighted that Itron’s one millionth AMR module has been installed with Yorkshire Water. Their solutions and support services have been instrumental in helping us increase our operational efficiency and customer service levels.”

The Itron deployments are factory-fitted and programmed with the EverBlu AMR module, which the company says provides a seamless pathway for utilities to migrate from remote mobile reading to fixed network reading.  Data around consumption, leakage and alarms help utilities remotely assess the performance of their networks and assets.
Joop Groeneveld, sales director, Netherlands, UK & Ireland for Itron said, “With this milestone, Yorkshire Water’s system represents the largest AMR deployment within the UK water and wastewater industry.  Itron is immensely proud of this achievement and is pleased to be sharing it alongside Yorkshire Water.”
