For a long time, water scarcity and a high level of non-revenue water have been causing great challenges in the water sector in Iran. In some areas, the loss of non-revenue water is up to 60 percent. However, political openness towards modern technology is giving Iran new-found possibilities to meet and solve these challenges, and the Iranian government has stated that they are aiming to reduce the entire country’s non-revenue water by bringing it down to about 15-17 per cent.
Danish Kamstrup, who delivers intelligent metering solutions, is experiencing the growing political interest in modern technology and the value of precise metering data.
In connection to Kamstrup’s visit in Iran, the company signed both a partner contract and an agreement of two pilot projects with the local Iranian company Iran Ensheab Co. The projects include intelligent water meters and remote reading system. The signing took place at the Iranian ministry of Energy.
The Water sector visit takes place from 12th – 14th November where Kamstrup, along with six other companies, is representing the Danish Water and Waste Water delegation. The purpose of the meeting is to give Danish companies insight into Iranian water market, and in addition, the Danish delegation get to present their products and services and create new relations with authorities within the water and wastewater sector.
