PGE Dystrybucja S.A., as a result of the tender, has awarded the consortium of ADD Polska, ADD Production and ADD Bulgaria the contract for pilot implementation of a smart metering system (AMI) in a branch of Białystok and Łódź- covering more than 50 000 Smart Electricity Meters.
Thanks to the AMI implementation PGE wants to reduce the operational costs and improve quality of power supply.
The pilot will be the occasion to measure the actual benefits of Smart Metering and to choose the method and scope of the future roll-out. The current pilot includes a sample of about 1% of PGE’s metering base, carefully selected to match majority of situations and environments available within the grid. The Pilot sites will range from rural areas to densely populated city districts providing different environments that will present an additional challenge for the project.
ADD GRUP will provide for the project its new generation of meters and data concentrators based on a Universal Hardware Platform that supports PRIME v1.3.6 with possibility for upgrade to v1.4 and G3-PLC.
The implementation includes the integration with third party Head End System and integration with cellular operator. The experience of ADD GRUP gained at previous implementations of 420 000 meters in Poland is valuable for the deployment at PGE Dystrybucja S.A.
