Skellefteå Kraft chose Aidon’s technology for its next generation smart metering system

The Swedish energy distribution company Skellefteå Kraft has chosen Aidon as the supplier of its next generation smart metering system. Aidon’s total delivery covers a head-end system, energy service devices and an RF-based communication solution.  Skellefteå Kraft is one of the first DSOs to invest in a new metering system which complies with the new functional requirements specified by the Swedish Energy Market Inspectorate last year.

The new system will provide Skellefteå Kraft with a range of advanced features and significantly larger amount of data with a possibility to monitor the status of their grid and the quality of supply. The company’s customers will benefit from the new system so that they will receive more accurate information about their energy consumption and the possibility to control it. Implementation of the new system will start this summer.

– Our task is to offer our customers a secure supply of electricity in the future, while having an efficient operating environment and a well-balanced grid. With Aidon’s solution we gain access to advanced functionality in a metering system that is also future-proof, says Clas Berglund, head of grid department at Skellefteå Kraft.

– We are delighted that we will be involved in developing Skellefteå Kraft’s electricity network. In Sweden, the next phase of smart grid development is about to begin, and these first DSOs serve as examples to others, says Fredrik Rex, managing director of Aidon in Sweden.
