Home / Case Studies / Optimizing metering asset operation for Eau de Paris
Saft’s innovative Meter Life Analysis service is helping the water utility serving Paris to secure the availability of its metering infrastructure.
Eau de Paris is the utility responsible for the production and distribution of water in the city of Paris. Its activities are coordinated from a water control centre and it manages a fleet of water meters operated by telemetry, which were deployed 10 years ago.
The Meter Life analysis service is based on the evaluation of health and ageing process of the meters by measuring and testing a representative sample of batteries collected from the field. Tests include:
The Meter Life Analysis service enables to identity the parameters influencing the ageing process (temperature, location, humidity, type of metering device) and the possible technical solutions to optimize battery life.
Note: state of the art tests are performed by a Saft production laboratory using special test equipment with analysis of results by highly trained experts.
For more than 10 years, Saft has provided batteries for Eau de Paris’s many different brands, makes and models of Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) systems that serve 99% of Parisian buildings. To meet our specific requirement, Saft has designed and deployed a service to check the actual power consumption of installed batteries. By performing laboratory analysis and then correlating the results with life expectancy data, Saft can accurately estimate the remaining service life of devices and equipment that are deployed across our fleet.Louise Dauffy Metering, Metrology and Smart Metering / Water Distribution / Eau de Paris
