Itron (ITRI) Subsidiary Actaris Gets Another Middle East Smart Metering Deal

Itron (ITRI) subsidiary Actaris announced this morning a deal with Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority for 140K smart electricity meters which will be deployed across the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and fully integrated in an AMR fixed network .  This is a follow on contract after a successful implementation of 60K meters that allows ADWEA to remotely access all metering and operating data and instantly vaults Actaris to the throne as the largest smart meter provider in the Middle East.  No word on the financials of the deal.

“Actaris has developed a focused solution for the Middle East region that takes into account the high demands of temperature, humidity and dust”, said Marcel Regnier, Actaris COO. “Our long-standing experience in the region and our relationship with forward-looking utilities like ADWEA have enabled us to offer high-specification products with the ability to withstand the harshest environmental demands.”
