Brazilian utility COPASA expands water meter order with Elster

Elster announced that Companhia de Saneamento de Minas
Gerais (COPASA), a water utility in Brazil, has selected Elster to supply more
than 111,000 S120 single-jet water meters in Brazil over the next 12 months.

This follows COPASA’s selection of Elster in June 2011 to
supply 63,000 glass and plastic register cover S120 single-jet water meters to
support COPASA’s metering programs.

COPASA is one of the leading operators of water services
in Brazil, supplying more than 3.5 million domestic and business customers in
the southeast of Brazil with water services.

The S120 single-jet water meter offers durability and
accuracy over a wide operating range and has been approved to the latest
international standards. To meet individual customer needs, it is available in
a range of sizes and register covers.

At COPASA, the S120 meter will provide more accurate
water usage measurement, helping improve revenue generation and customer
service. COPASA will deploy a combination of plastic register cover single-jet
meters, including a standard flat plain version and a 45-degree version for
easier meter reading.

“COPASA is impressed with the S120 single-jet water
meter and we look forward to our continued relationship with Elster which has
been developed over many years of outstanding customer service,” said
Arnaldo Reis Carvalho Filho, water meter manager at COPASA.

“The COPASA deployment will strengthen Elster’s
position in the Latin American water utilities market by demonstrating the
benefits of Elster metering solutions,” said Jerry Lauzze, executive vice
president of Elster’s
global water business.
