Stockholm, Sweden and Rueil-Malmaison, France --- (METERING.COM)  --- February 21, 2013 - Vattenfall Eldistribution has contracted Schneider Electric with continued responsibility for the management of an automated metering infrastructure (AMI) of 615,000 smart meters through March 31, 2017.

The work includes the integration of an additional 150,000 meters to the Schneider Electric AMI Titanium platform. This unified AMI platform will support the management of 85 percent of Vattenfall’s meters as of January 2013.

With Schneider Electric’s AMI managed services, Vattenfall is able to build its meter system with an open architecture, highly integrated product. Vattenfall expects to increase service levels and reduce cost, with the future goal to have a single AMI platform as an integrated part of the future smart grid architecture.

Schneider Electric has partnered with Vattenfall since 2005, implementing and operating its network of smart meters.

Vattenfall Eldistribution AB is one of the largest electricity distributors in Sweden supplying approximately 850,000 private and corporate customers.
