Aidon to deliver a next generation smart metering system to Västervik Miljö & Energi

Västervik Miljö & Energi has awarded to Aidon a contract for the delivery of a new generation smart metering solution. Västervik’s intention is to replace all existing meters with next generation reading system based on radio technology as the communication solution for data delivery. Deployment of the new system will start already this year and the roll-out is planned to be completed during 2017.

The new solution will provide Västervik Miljö & Energi with a range of advanced features not only for reading their customers’ energy consumption for billing purposes, but also for monitoring the electricity supply quality and having the possibility to use the same communication solution to collect the consumption figures of heating and water as well. The system is fully compliant with the new functional requirements which were defined in Energimarknadsinspektionen’s report issued in May 2015. Västervik Miljö & Energi is the first energy distribution company in Sweden with a full system implementation complying with the new requirements

– Our existing meter reading system has become outdated, and instead of renewing it step by step we decided to replace it completely. The new solution from Aidon will bring the meter reading system’s functionality and performance to a completely new level, making a wide range of valuable information, available to us, says Per Allerth, CEO of Västervik Miljö & Energi.

– Västervik Miljö & Energi wanted a feature-rich AMI solution with advanced smart grid functionality, and we are proud to be the provider of such solution to them, says Fredrik Rex, Managing Director of Aidon in Sweden.

– We look forward to starting the cooperation, which will also mark the beginning of the 2nd wave of AMI deployment in Sweden, in accordance with the new requirements, Rex says.
