Smart Water
Ensuring water for future generations
Every Last Drop - For a secure water future

Every drop of water is precious for us, for the planet, and for the future of life as we knows it. Join Iskraemeco in ensuring that water keeps flowing for all the generations to come.
Our Smart Water Solution gives utility companies the advantage of sustainable financial and technical operation.

It is a layered, starting from an array of coordinated smart meters, through communications and data collection, up to data management and software services. Smart water meters with Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies and advanced analytics have become the solution’s key focus. Immediately being alerted leaks and having the knowledge to predict consumption patterns and optimize water resources remotely give operators the perfect suite of tools to keep water flowing.

Challenges

What challenges are water utilities facing today that a smart city solution can help with?

Our Smart Water solution addresses utilities’ most bothersome challenges:

  • reducing NRW
  • efficient water metering and consumption billing
  • customer awareness and improved consumer service
Opportunities

What utilities stand to gain from Smart Water?

  • Cost optimization (predictability, pay per usage)
  • Efficient processes (economies of scale, shared IT infrastructure)
  • Minimized risks (costs, technology, human resources)
  • Investment protection (evolving operation environment)
  • Cutting-edge competences, technologies, and tools
Benefits

What are the long-term benefits of a Smart Water solution?

  • Accurate metering in all water sources, end consumption points, and district metering areas (DMA).
  • NRW reduction through a DMA approach.
  • Leaks in in metering zones (DMA) are detected immediately, reducing material losses:
    • Meter under-registrations, data-handling errors, and water theft of water are flagged.
    • Repairs and regular maintenance are completed more efficiently through workforce management.
  • Increased customer satisfaction and awareness.
Managed Services

As water utilities increasingly evolve into subscription-based business models, Smart Water solution can be delivered as managed service. These managed services can be Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), or in more comprehensive service agreements also Smart Metering-as-a-Service (SMaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). The software is hosted in a private or public cloud.

Smart Metering

Water sources, district metering areas (DMA), and I&C consumers and residential consumers are monitored and evaluated using a range of measuring technology: ultrasonic, electromagnetic and mechanical (multi-jet, positive displacement, Woltmann). All meters are equipped with intelligent communication modules (wM-Bus, LoRaWAN).

Billing & Customer Engagement

A robust platform for Billing, the Customer Portal, & the App integrates multiple information streams into a single, elegant solution. An extensive list of functions such as consumption overview, invoices review, payments and payment history, price lists, and additional services are available to end consumers.

Active Leakage Detection

The expandable monitoring platform helps control water leakages and reduce Non-Revenue Water (NRW) using a District Metered Areas (DMA) approach. The system consists of flow & pressure sensors, battery-powered data loggers, and a cloud-based software program.

Analytics & NRW Reduction

Analytics focuses on performance-based data and statistical methods from billing and NRW management.

Mobile Workforce Management

Managing massive rollouts requires a smooth flow of information between dispatchers and field technicians. Back-office software and a mobile app for the field staff cover the entire process, from work order creation to completion.

Why Iskraemeco

Iskraemeco is a giant in providing managed services. As water utilities increasingly evolve into subscription-based business models, our Smart Water solution is a perfect tool to fit this trend.
