Smart Metering Workshop in Cape Town

Ghana Water bringing down water loss with digital technology

Ghana Water is the national water supplier in Ghana with more than 950.000 water meter connections, of which 112.000 connections are equipped with Kamstrup water meters.

Water loss is a huge problem in Ghana, and when they started their digitalization journey back in 2018, they were losing 54% of produced drinking water.

The water is either lost due to poorly maintained distribution networks, but also to a high extent, due to inaccurate mechanical water meters, that are easily exposed to tampering and, furthermore, with manual meter reading the risk of inaccurate billing is very high.

Until now they have lowered the water loss to around 40% by introducing smart metering technology and pressure management.
