The Arad Group is pleased to announce that its contract with Southern Water, one of the largest water and waste-water companies in England, has been extended for an additional 5-year period. During this time Southern Water will continue to deploy Arad’s advanced Gladiator water meters, integrated with Arad’s Dialog 3G AMR system, at a cost of approximately £10 million (~$15.7 million).
During the first phase of the contract, which was worth ~£31 million (~$48.8 million), more than 500,000 meters were installed and integrated with the AMR system, which was customized to meet the specific requirements of Southern Water and its customers.
Southern Water supplies drinking water to more than one million households in the South of England, one of the driest areas in the UK. With Arad’s meters and AMR infrastructure in place, 92% of their customers now pay only for the water they use and have online access to their bills, while Southern Water itself is saving water and energy through better leak detection and other enhanced alerts.
