TRE-FOR awards AMM contract


Zug, Switzerland — (METERING.COM) — January 16, 2008 – Danish utility TRE-FOR has awarded an advanced meter management turnkey project, including 200,000 electricity, heat and water meters, communication devices, and a state-of-the-art advanced metering system for data acquisition and processing, to Landis+Gyr.

In addition Landis+Gyr will provide innovative in-house display units and systems training, and will integrate the system into TRE-FOR’s IT network. With this single integrated multi-energy AMM solution, TRE-FOR reduces infrastructure costs and significantly increases overall process efficiency. All energy and customer information is stored on one system where it can be accessed for commercial, operational and customer service purposes, allowing for billing based on actual consumption.

End-users are able to track their energy consumption in real-time via the ecoMeter, an in-house display which TRE-FOR is piloting. It provides consumers with real-time information about electricity, heat and water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and current tariffs. End-users are thus able to manage their energy usage more efficiently, benefiting the environment and saving money.

Knud Steen Larsen, CEO of TRE-FOR, said: "It is very important to TRE-FOR that our customers get better service and do not have to read their meters themselves. This state-of-the-art system will provide us with the opportunity to acquire new products for the electricity market, including other solutions that will reduce costs."
