Large-scale system integration
The energy company, Kymenlaakson Sähköverkko Oy (KSOY) wanted to switch to remote reading to improve their level of customer service and to streamline the processes of meter reading and billing. Faced with replacing their 100,000 electricity meters with new remotely read meters and implementing a new meter reading system, they chose service company Empower as the primary contractor for the comprehensive project, which involved close to 20 partners and sub-suppliers.
One of them was Kamstrup who, in addition to supplying 65,000 of the meters, delivered concentrators and VisionAir AMR software, took care of planning and implementing the radio communication network, and provided system support.
“Kamstrup was chosen due to their technical capabilities and commercially competitive solutions, especially for the end-customer segment with single-family houses in rural areas,” says Juha Kiukas, Project Manager at Empower IM Oy.
