The Kolkata Environment Improvement Project (KEIP) is an Asian Development Bank-assisted project, where the beneficiary is Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) and the citizens of the metropolis.
|ABB flow meters form the backbone of the water management system being implemented by HiTech Shanta Colibri JV for the Kolkata Municipal Corporation as part of KEIP. ABB has provided 165 Aqua Probe, insertion-type electromagnetic flow meters for this project.|
Once completed, it will assist the utility to monitor their primary and secondary networks and reduce system losses. Knowledge-based decisions will permit
|without interrupting normal water supply. The rugged construction of its ‘Hot Tap’ feature and ‘Fit and Flow’ design, offers easy installation in existing pipelines, without taking the water networks offline – a distinct advantage over traditional in-line flow meters.|
The AquaProbe is compatible with a battery-operated Aquamaster, offering flexibility such as five-year battery life, environmentally friendly wind/solar powered options and features like on board data loggers and data accessed via GSM networks.
This pathbreaking order opens a window of opportunity in the emerging water infrastructure segment and promises well for the future of measurement products.
