Russian energy provider orders 80,000 additional smart meters


Energoauditcontrol (EAC), a leading Russian engineering company and value-added reseller of Echelon’s Network Energy Services (NES) advanced metering system, has ordered an additional 80,000 smart meters, extending the scope of an advanced metering project in Russia announced last year. With this latest order, the project has increased in size to approximately 180,000 networked meters.

Shipments are already underway and total revenue to Echelon under the extension is anticipated to be approximately $6.8 million.

The NES advanced metering infrastructure from Echelon consists of a family of highly integrated, advanced electronic electricity meters accessed via a web services based network operating system over an IP networking infrastructure.
