    Schlumberger

    South Australian Water Corporation (SA Water) has
    awarded a contract to upgrade water metering throughout
    the state to Schlumberger Resource Management
    Services (RMS).

    A total of 440 000 new meters will
    be installed over a six year period, to provide SA
    Water with more accurate water metering and a
    remote-reading-upgradeable network, allowing it to monitor and manage its
    distribution network.

    The manufacturer's Woltex unit
    will be used for medium to large flow Cass II 50-150
    mm applications. It uses a hydrodynamically balanced
    helix mechanism for long-term measurement reliability.
    The P50 range, which has a new rotary piston designed
    for high accuracy for low-flow applications, will be
    used for smaller commercial and residential
    applications.

    Both meter families are compatible with the
    Schlumberger Cyble intelligent signal emitter module, which
    provides a communications interface for remote reading
    systems based on an electronic pulse generator, rather
    than the more conventional encoder. This provides
    superior measurement performance, capable of detecting
    direction as well as flow rate, and a very simple means of
    connection to data logging, analysis, communications or
    control equipment. Schlumberger is working to provide a
    plug-on RF interface to adapt meters for inaccessible
    locations to provide remote reading via radio frequency
    link.

    Schlumberger is also investing in the local economy by
    relocating its existing Melbourne meter manufacturing plant
    to Adelaide, creating up to 200 jobs. The plant will
    produce water, electricity and gas meters to serve the
    Australian market and other countries in the AsiaPacific
    region.

    • The takeover of Landis & Gyr by Siemens in April
      1998 makes Siemens the largest manufacturer of
      electricity meters in the world. The new firm arising from
      the happy marriage of these two powerful competitors,
      known as Siemens Metering AG, has its headquarters in
      Zug, Switzerland.

      Siemens Metering believes
      that competitive success in a free market depends on
      the efficiency and effectiveness of commercial
      processes rather than assured supply, and is of the opinion
      that demand for systems to increase the flexibility
      and speed of those commercial processes will
      increase. The new group will offer integral systems
      solutions to match products to specific customer
      requirements, so as to increase utilities�
      competitiveness.

      Siemens Metering is investing in the further expansion of
      the Business and Consulting Services division as a
      sep-arate product segment. The services offered will allow
      utilities to farm out complementary activities so that they
      are able to concentrate on their core business.
