Kangasalan Vesi and Digita Oy have concluded a long-term agreement on the digitalisation of remote water meter reading with the help of Digita’s IoT network, which is based on the LoRaWAN technology. With this agreement, the operative management of the water plant is expected to improve, as real-time monitoring of water consumption also enables more comprehensive data to be collected for the sites.

“We carried out thorough reviews and testing of various remote reading solutions for water meters, and Digita was able to offer a comprehensive and good total solution for our needs. We will be installing remote-readable water meters for our new customers, and our objective is that old water meters will be replaced with new ones at the rate of 500–1000 per year,” says Antti Kytövaara, Managing Director of Kangasalan Vesi. “This is an important agreement for us, as we can now develop our billing and customer service in completely new ways,” Kytövaara adds.

“Cooperation with Kangasalan Vesi has started well and we are glad that we were given the opportunity to carry out this renewal with them. Both the company and end customers will benefit greatly from the digitalisation of water supply. Concrete results are obtained immediately, as real-time monitoring eliminates the need for estimate-based billing and customer-specific refunds,” says Mona Miettinen, Sales Manager, IoT Services at Digita.
