Istanbul, Turkey and Liberty Lake, WA, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- July 19, 2012 - AKSA, Turkey's largest private gas utility, has awarded a contract to Itron to provide 745,000 residential as well as commercial and industrial (C&I) gas meters.

During the 3-year contract, the gas meters will be rolled out in twenty different regions of AKSA's territory. As Turkey is planning to increase its gas pipeline infrastructure to accommodate its growing energy consumption, the new meters will contribute to the country’s infrastructure development and will help AKSA build a strong metering platform.
 
“As a leading gas distribution company in Turkey, we are pleased to work with Itron,” said Yasar Aslan, AKSA's CEO. “These new meters provide embedded technology for smart meter applications that we aim to implement in the near future.”
