Smart meters: Egypt utility issues tender to improve AMI


In Egypt, state-owned electricity utility Egyptian Electricity Holding Comapny (EEHC) has issued a tender for the execution of phase one of its advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) deployment.

EEHC wants to replace 3 million of its existing meters with smart meters.

The Remaining 7 million meters will be replaced in phase two of the programme, Metering has learnt.

According to a statement, the utility is seeking an experienced firm to supply, test and deploy the 3 million smart meters within two years.

The successful company will provide operations and maintenance services as part of an end-to-end solution for 3 years after deployment.

Deadline for submissions is 15 October 2015.

Interested parties can call on 02-27882778/26038197 or visit for more information.

Advanced metering infrastructure

The tender follows a report by global management consultancy EY last year that stated Africa’s slow rate of smart meter deployment is a fundamental link to slow growth in the energy sector and businesses.

EY said accelerating towards a more systematic smart metering roll out would promote growth in the continent’s energy sector.
