  1. Swedish utility chooses Kamstrup as its new smart metering partner

    Smart metering solutions provider Kamstrup will be supplying 27,000 intelligent electricity meters to Swedish utility Västerbergslagens Elnät AB over the next three years. Both consumers and utility will be able to improve energy efficiency. In the coming years, Swedish utilities are facing the second wave of smart meter rollouts and Västerbergslagens Elnät AB is among the first in the country to embark on this next step of the smart metering journey, having now selected the solution they believe will help them meet current and future demands. The need for a reliable partner in for the long haul was one of the deciding factors behind their choice of Kamstrup, according to Bo Sörberg, CEO of Västerbergslagens Elnät AB. Kamstrup’s supply is not limited to the 27,000 electricity meters, but also include the OMNIA smart grid platform, which will give Västerbergslagens Elnät AB the possibility to test and remotely read heat meters and provide the data needed to reap the rewards of the utility’s smart metering investment. As part of the turnkey solution, Kamstrup will supply meters, communication infrastructure and software as well as handle the installation of the meters. With the OMNIA solution, Västerbergslagens Elnät AB will obtain a raft of benefits, not least of which is the ability to improve the service it offers its customers. Transparent billing and the potential to monitor their energy usage can help customers to save energy and reduce their spending. In addition, the OMNIA solution will provide the utility with data to analyse and optimise grid performance and increase effciency. The agreement with Västerbergslagens Elnät AB underlines Kamstrup’s strong foothold as leading supplier of smart metering solutions in Scandinavia. “Kamstrup has a strong local presence in Sweden, both in terms of product development and project management, as well as service and support”, says Kamstrups’ System Sales and Project Group Manager for Electricity Systems, Filipe Vasconcelos. He continues: “Our end-to-end metering solutions are tailored to the unique and changing needs of each customer and we look forward to working closely together with Västerbergslagens Elnät AB to prepare them for future challenges”. The process of replacing VB’s meters will begin in the next few months with the project expected to be completed within three years.
