Pandemic Note on the current situation
Dear partners and customers,
Due to the global spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), GWF has set up a task force to implement the recommendations of the Federal Office of Public Health with internal measures which are constantly reviewed and adapted as and when required. In addition, measures have been taken to secure our production, logistics, services and accessibility.
You can reach your GWF contacts via their personal telephone numbers and email addresses. We are also available for video conferences.
We are currently fully capable to deliver and have taken measures to maintain our delivery capability over the coming months. We will inform you transparently, should individual orders be delayed and ask that you plan your needs for products and services carefully and to inform us timeously to ensure that we are able to assist you.
We would like to close with a big “Thank You!”. You as our partners and customers stand for safe and clean delivery of energy, water and heat. In times like these, we are reminded about the importance of functioning infrastructure in cities and buildings. Your dedication to your work contributes greatly to overcoming this crisis. Thank you.

Ensuring customers are GDPR & ISO27001 compliant with «myGWF»
When GDPR came into force in May 2018, many requirements had to be met by companies to demonstrate full compliance with the regulation. For the EU utilities market, in particular, it stipulates that all meter data must be encrypted and that each meter requires an individual encryption key.
At GWF MessSysteme AG, we obviously want to offer our partners and customers added value in this specific context. As such, we have launched a specially designed platform called «myGWF». The handling of remote keys is now fully automated and entirely separate from FTP/SFTP/FTPS or email exchange.
Advantages of the myGWF platform…
We believe that technological progress will save our planet. Let’s meet and discuss at EUW in Paris.
Responsible use and effective management of natural resources in the context of growing populations, urbanization and climate change are the most pressing challenges of our time. Generating reliable measurement data is fundamental to gaining key insights for actions that will determine our future.
Through our open and trusted GWFcoder® technology in water and gas applications, GWF continues to contribute to technological progress in accurate measurement and granular data collection. In 2018, GWF launched a wide range of ultrasonic measurement devices based on our patented GWF 4D Technology®. These high-quality products generate reliable data in wastewater, hydropower, irrigation, hydrology, and water supply applications.
Let us discuss how we can use GWF’s technologies and our collaboration to make the world a better place.
Smart Meter Roll-out in Luxemburg has started
GWF MessSysteme AG delivers smart water meters with wired and wireless M-Bus data transmission for the implementation into the nationwide Luxmetering IT network
Ville de Dudelange has been participating as a Luxembourgish gas and water Distribution System Operator (DSO) since the end of 2011 in a project with the scope for deployment of a national smart metering system for gas and electricity, with the possibility to enlarge this system to water and thermal meters. This project is led by an Economic Interest Group, called Luxmetering in charge of all common operations concerning the smart metering system, including the purchase, installation and operation of the central system that will collect and manage the smart metering data and functionality. Furthermore, they will manage the coordination and acquisition of all the field equipment including smart electricity, gas and water meters.
GWF at European Utility Week in Vienna
European Utility Week was held at the Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center in Vienna from November 6 – 8, 2018. The event once again brought together suppliers, distributors, manufacturers, and customers.
GWF had its own booth under the direction of the International Sales Team and met with customers, partners, and interested parties. Special attention was paid to 4D technology, a brand-new development from GWF. Visitors had a chance to see for themselves the extraordinary performance features of the technology at the specially constructed test stand with a sonico® EDGE DN50. Eight models of various sizes up to DN300 of the sonico® EDGE and VANTAGE series could also be viewed at the booth.
