Moscow, Russia and Zug, Switzerland — (METERING.COM) — November 16, 2009 – Mosenergo, one of Russia’s largest energy generation companies, has entered into an agreement with Landis+Gyr to expand its commercial metering solution, which was first implemented in 2007.
The goal of the expanded solution from Landis+Gyr is to further improve Mosenergo’s information management, business processes and increase its energy efficiency.
The AMM solution initially provided by Landis+Gyr includes system software, metering and communication devices. The solution consists of best-in-class grid meters for precise measurement as well as Landis+Gyr’s Gridstream Converge for data processing. The goal was to automate measurement processes, validate and substitute data, and calculate the company’s energy balance. To achieve this, data from 3,000 meters is acquired every three minutes and distributed to several third party systems from Mosenergo.
The implementation of the AMM solution was a key step to help Mosenergo detect where and how much energy is flowing, automate business processes to work on the wholesale market and simplify customer energy calculations. Due to the project’s success, Mosenergo has planned to extend the solution further by adding new power generation stations to it as well as smart gas meters.
“Mosenergo is a true leader in energy efficiency in Russia and we are honored to help them build up the country’s smart metering infrastructure. By improving data management, the company can enhance energy efficiency and customer relations,” said Andreas Brun, senior vice president of Landis+Gyr.
Mosenergo is a distributed power generation company which has 19 substations situated in Moscow and the Moscow region and generates more than 60 billion kWh per year.
