District heat meter
Explanation:
I'm guessing the construction is taking place in a city that begins with the letter W, and the "FWW" is the acronym of the local "Fernwärme"-provider. Is this taking place in Würenlingen, Switzerland?

Notes to answerer
Asker: No, it's in Prague, actually - but I think you're onto something with Fernwärme.Thanks! FernWärmeWasser (as opposed to drinking water, perhaps?


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Andrew D: Fernwärme is likely but not certain, as gas is also used,.. Fernwärme Wasser is unlikely, as Steam is usually used as media.//as FWW Zähler is untypical, it might well be a typo for FW-Zähler=> agree

agree  Steffen Walter: There could also just be one W too many in the source.
