Finnish utility signs up for AMR system


Finnish FlagJyskä, Finland — (METERING.COM) — December 8, 2006 – Valkeakosken Energia Oy of Finland has appointed Enermet to supply automatic meter reading services to all its 11,500 customers, using the Enermet AIM AMR system. Enermet will also supply the field devices, and will act as a full service provider in the delivery of the field devices and the collection of the metering data. This data will be read with Enermet’s AIM system and transferred to Valkeakosken Energia’s customer information system through the Enermet AIM integration interface.

Enermet FSP (full service provisioning) means that customers order the metering data collection and management service according to their specific needs. Enermet is responsible for the maintenance of the AIM AMR system as well as the transfer of the metering data, which is collected daily as hourly series or as a cumulative monthly record, depending on the utility’s requirements.

“Automatic meter reading helps us to improve our operations and our customer service,” says Reijo Lehtonen from Valkeakosken Energia. “Enermet FSP is the best solution for us, as it not only provides us with the resources and services we need, but also frees us from the overall system responsibility.”
