Electromagnetic flowmeters from ABB are playing a key role in cutting water leakage across a large swathe of the Ministry of Defence estate in the UK with reductions of up to 60% achieved at some sites. Leakage has already dropped by approximately 2 million m3/year across more than 1,500 MoD sites where water and waste utility assets are managed by C2C Services.
C2C Services is a consortium of Severn Trent Services and Costain. C2C is responsible for providing water services to MoD sites in the North, East and South East of England, known as 'Package C'. The 25-year £1billion contract is part of Project Aquatrine, which transferred responsibility for MoD's water services to three different contractors.
C2C's water resources manager, Mark Amor, says that the AquaMaster meters from ABB have been central to the success of C2C's leak reduction programme. "We've used a targeted approach and it's all based on the availability of high quality data."
