A Swedish energy distribution service operator Tekniska verken and the Finnish Aidon Oy signed on Wednesday a contract, according to which Aidon will deliver to Tekniska verken a total solution for reading of electricity, water and district heat meters and for utilising intelligent data in the energy distribution. Delivery of 95 000 smart electricity meters is included in the contract. The installations of the meters and the introduction of the system will start in May 2020.

– The purpose of the exchange of electricity meters is, among other things, to ensure a reliable operation of the electricity grid and to reduce the power peaks in order to cope with the increasing generation of renewable electricity and the electrification of the society. Furthermore, the new meters will make it easier for our customers to get an overview of their energy consumption. It feels safe that Aidon, with its vast experience in installations throughout the Nordic region, will be the supplier of Tekniska verken, says Lovisa Fricot Norén, CEO of Tekniska verken.

Tommi Blomberg, CEO of Aidon comments:
– Tekniska verken is a forerunner in the energy distribution branch with a clear goal of implementing a smart electricity grid and laying the foundation for a climate-smart society, utilising new technologies. We are honoured to have been selected as the provider of their next-generation smart metering solution, as a result of a thorough evaluation and comparison of several alternatives.

In Sweden, ca 5.4 million electricity meters will be changed by the end of 2024. The reason for this is the new legislation according to which the energy distribution system operators must use more detailed data for managing the supply quality, to provide their customers with the possibility to manage their own consumption, as well as shorten the imbalance settlement period to 15 minutes according to EU regulation.
