Syd Energi (DK) expands its Landis+Gyr AIM for advanced metering

Inge Lise Laursen, Communications & Marketing Manager at Syd Energi elaborates: ”Enermet's service is super, delivery times are fine, their product is a high-quality product, and we have a fine co-operation.”

The large scale deployment of the additional metering points will be finalised during 12 months starting from May 2007. The ongoing AMR project of a total of 246 000 metering points is one of the largest projects in the Nordics. It covers both rural and city areas.

Exceptional multi-energy solution

”The new metering management system improves customer service as our customers do not have to make any registrations themselves due to the remote control of the metering points”, Ms. Laursen says.

”Besides, we expect considerable efficiency improvement and efficiency enhancing measures like automatic recording which ensures quick and correct listing of consumption thus streamlining operations and contributing to higher efficiency.”

Syd Energi appreciates the fully electronic data processing of all data measurements, surveillance and monitoring controls of the power grid and possible implementation of preventive action in case of specific overloads in the grid.

The solution includes electricity meters that connect via low voltage Power Line Communication, GPRS and LAN communication to the Advanced Meter Management system. In addition, the solution enables a vendor independent multi-energy solution with options for flexible use of wired or wireless to district heating meters and metering devices for other forms of energy. Besides reading Syd Energi's own customers' energy consumption data information, the system enables service provision for other heating and water companies operating in the same region. It also enables reading the load profile of all residential customers.

The deal with Syd Energi is highly important for Landis+Gyr Enermet. Kim Nørgaard, Vice Precident Sales Europe, states:
"It underlines the fact that Syd Energi has been satisfied with the solution deliveries and implementation of the first 100 000 metering points. The agreement also shows that Enermet has been able to add even more agreed customer functionality to an already large and well functioning system."
