Welsh Water in partnership with ARAD Water Metering is installing 250 new digital “smart” meters in Grangetown, Cardiff – with plans for another 3,000 to be fitted over the next three months – as part of an EU-funded water usage project involving partners from across Europe.
The new smart metres will be the latest innovation used by Welsh Water in a bid to reduce costs and keep customers’ bills low. Reducing wastage is one of the company’s top priorities with leakage rates halved since the early 1990s from 400 megalitres per day (Ml/d) to around 180 Ml/d. Welsh Water find and fix around 26,000 leaks a year .
The smart meter trial is part of a wider EU funded WISDOM project - Water Analytics & Intelligent Sensing For Demand Optimised Management - which has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration.
As part of the project funded the utility came together with ARAD Water Metering Group under the direction of UK Director Simon Ogden and The City of Cardiff Council to implement SMART Metering.
