Falkenberg Energi chose the Landis+Gyr Gridstream© Connect platform with point-to-point communicating E360 NB-IoT meters and Software as a Service (SaaS) to improve their operations and enable future development.
When deciding on a smart metering implementation, the energy utility embarks on a journey, one of joint enterprise and team effort that impacts the entire organization.
Landis+Gyr, a global leader in transforming the way energy is managed, will deliver its Gridstream® Connect solution for one million metering points to E.ON in Sweden. With the contract, E.ON transitions to second generation smart metering technology for excelling customer service and grid efficiency.
As our customers strive for efficiency and security in a dynamic and constantly changing environment, they need to consider new operational models. This explains a growing interest in Managed Services, delivered by specialist external partners to manage utility’s AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) operations and processes – like AMI software and IT system hosting known as “Software as a Service” (SaaS).
Smart meter rollouts require efficient project management and handy tools for planning and scheduling tasks and monitoring their progress. With at times hundreds of thousands of meters about to be installed, procedures and processes need to be clear to avoid errors, superfluous site revisits and wasted investments. Here’s where our Field Operations Manager (FOM) software comes into play: FOM supports the efficient management of the rollout, by digitalizing and formalizing the installation process. It provides advanced tools both for installation planning as well as job flows for actual work in the field.
Almost four years ago, Austrian utility Netz Burgenland Strom has commissioned us to supply and deploy smart electricity meters – as one of the country’s first distribution system operators to commit to a full-scale G3 PLC smart metering solution rollout.
