Essen, Germany --- (METERING.COM) --- April 14, 2011 - Hamburger Wasserwerke (HWW) has awarded Elster a contract for the supply of up to 110,000 M100 multi-jet water meters over the next three years.

The M100 wet-dial multi-jet water meter, with nominal flow rates of Qn 1.5 to Qn 15, is EEC approved for metrological classes C (horizontal) and B (vertical), and can be mounted in virtually any position.

It offers long life and high accuracy over a wide operating range, and has optional pulse interfaces – a prerequisite for automated meter reading (AMR). The product has been approved to the latest European Directive 2004/22/EC and International ISO 4064 standards.

“HWW looks forward to the installation of the M100 multi-jet water meters as part of our metering program,” said Bernd Redmann, director, supply chain management for Hamburger Wasserwerke. “The M100 meets our specifications in this Europe-wide tender both for metrology and for lead-free housing, which our corporation has chosen as a standard for the entire city.”

HWW is part of Germany's largest publicly owned water management company Hamburg Wasser Group, which manages water supply and wastewater for about two million people in Hamburg and surrounding areas.
