Swedish utility integrates smart meter solution for heat and water customers


Sweden-based utility Karlshamn Energi has selected Kamstrup for its smart meters programmes for both heat and water customers.

Kamstrup will provide the smart meters, related-infrastructure, READy remote reading system and analytics tool Leak Detector.

The smart meters will be installed in Karlshamn to help the utility to effectively automate readings and find suspicious leaks in the distribution network.

Kamstrup has installed a new feature in its flowIQ2200 smart meters to improve leakage detection.

Karlshamn Energi will be able to collect data from its heat meters using the smart water meter infrastructure.

The programmes will help Karlshamn Energi to improve the operations of its networks and customer services.

Jörgen Svensson, sales manager in Kamstrup, said: “We look forward to working with Karlshamn Energi. The solution is future-proof with a focus on leak detection, the analytics module Leak Detector makes this possible by locating leaks both on service pipes and in the distribution network. This means that Karlshamn Energi can spend time fixing leaks, instead of looking blindly for them.”

Marcus Steen, measurement engineer at Karlshamn Energi‘s measurement department, adds: “We look forward to what the digitalisation of water meters offers. The cooperation with Kamstrup and the possibilities they provide with new functionality in both software and meters will ultimately mean both cost and resource savings in the form of reduced water losses. Getting the heat meters into the same infrastructure is another win.”
