The Kfar Saba Water Plant (KSWP) was established in 1931 as a resident-owned cooperative to develop and manage the water resources of Kfar Saba in Israel’s central Sharon region. Today a city of 100,000, KSWP manages 33,000 water meters (95% residential and 5% agricultural) with an annual water consumption of ~8 million cubic meters.
In 2009, KSWP began deploying Arad’s AMI solution, including Multi-jet M (20-50mm) and Ultrasonic Octave (50-250mm) water meters, the Dialog3G Fixed Network cellular infrastructure, and the CityMind MDM software. In an in-depth interview that we conducted in May 2015 with KWSP’s CEO Rivka Harisson, she provided valuable insights on how to get maximum tangible and intangible benefit from an AMI investment, including:
- Why they decided to invest in AMI
- What they learned from the bidding and deployment process
- What benefits they have derived from AMI
- Bottom line: Has AMI provided the ROI that they expected?
