Advanced Metering solution for Energoauditcontrol (Russia)
Landis+Gyr will supply Energoauditcontrol with an advanced metering solution using Converge Residential, AMIS Concentrator and Flex meter. It also expects to provide consulting, engineering, training and project management.
The announcement comes after Energoauditcontrol won a contract in 2006 to equip residential and small industrial customers across Russia with smart meter devices. This involves deploying a potential 350,000 devices by the end of 2009.
What will be delivered?
Landis+Gyr will deliver the residential AMM system by the end of 2007, and deliveries of the devices and concentrators will start in October. In total, Landis+Gyr will deliver 50,000 metering devices. This includes single phase and polyphase devices with PLC module and disconnector, and data concentrators for PLC communication.
Stefan Weber, Executive Vice President Europe, says that this project presents the potential to grow shares for meters and concentrators in 2008 and 2009, and adds that it will pave the way for further opportunities in Russia.
The next phase of the project will be awarded by the end of this year. Landis+Gyr expects to win an equivalent or larger share, which it will supply in 2008 and again in 2009.
