Intelligent metering system for Dubai


Dubai, U.A.E. — (METERING.COM) — January 15, 2010 – Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has selected Al Mostajed Technologies to implement an intelligent metering system (IMS) in the emirate.

The IMS will read water and electricity meters of all consumers periodically, and the information will then be integrated with the DEWA Enterprise bus. The system will lay the foundations for a future smart grid.

Al Mostajed Technologies, part of Global Energy Technologies Ltd, worked closely with DEWA during a pilot phase. The technology and technical support is provided by the company’s partner Itron.

“We see this project as a long term partnership with DEWA,” said S. M. Hasan, director of Al Mostajed Technologies.
