Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad), is the water and wastewater services provider for the 17 cities and municipalities that form the West Zone of the Metropolitan Manila area in the Philippines. They needed to have an automatic meter reading solution without human intervention that allows more efficient and accurate readings.
Indeed, before 2015, more than 1.200.000 metered connections were read by manual mode in Manila. A process that showed its limits with only 300 meters read in one day added to other problems like traffic jam, reading errors, misreadings due to handwritten record.
Diehl Metering offered the right solution. A wireless radio that is capable of transmitting data every 8 seconds, as well as simple drive-by scheme:
A solution that allows effective costs reduction and reduction of Non Revenue Water (NRW) from 61 % to 29 %
Maynilad will be present at the Asia Water Expo in Kuala Lampur (10-12 April 2017) and will do a presentation on the AMR solution proposed by Diehl Metering.
