Invent smart meters in partnership with CityTaps in Niger


In Niger, we partnered with CityTaps, a startup whose vision is to bring running water into every home to improve the health of disadvantaged city dwellers.

CityTaps has developed a completely new solution: a prepayment service that includes a unique, smart, prepaid water meter. Customers can prepay for their water with their mobile phone - and for any amount.

This solution enables households to better manage their expenses. One year after the beginning of the installation of meters in Niamey, the service gave complete satisfaction to SEEN customers.

Key data 

  • First pilot phase: installation of  1,325 metres 
  • Goal 2020:  to extend the project underway and guarantee access to water at home to around 100,000 people in Niamey
