A major smart metering project
Helen Electricity Network Ltd and Landis+Gyr will cooperatively implement one of the largest and most advanced smart metering projects in Europe. The comprehensive smart metering solution will enable the network company to rationalize its processes and lead the way in developing new services and the smart grid.
Prior to the expansion of the company’s smart metering solution, the electricity consumption of Helen Electricity’s 150,000 customers is already measured with smart meters supplied by different manufacturers. Added to this Helen Electricity Network wanted also its largest smart metering package supplier to be a proficient and environmentally aware actor that could offer a versatile and cost-effective total solution, from high-quality and innovative meters to a sophisticated meter reading service. Helen Electricity required that their partner in this extensive smart metering project has to be able to rise to the challenge throughout the life cycle of the smart metering service. Another requirement Helen Electricity had in the selection of its smart metering solution provider was a reliable communication from meters to utility data systems. In total, the solution had to be able to provide up-to-date information on energy consumption, network status and power quality data to support the daily operations of Helen Electricity Network.
