Energy management giant Landis+Gyr has secured its fifth contract with Indian utility WBSEDCL, bringing the total deployed in the state of West Bengal to 3.5 million meters in the past five years.

WBSEDCL, which supplies 96 per cent of the power in West Bengal, has been aggressively replacing its meter park with electronic meters since 2009 and will use the latest order for more than 1 million digital meters for ongoing grid modernisation and electrification efforts.

Landis+Gyr won the order after “having successfully met the tough delivery schedule for the earlier 1.5 million meter order received and delivered in 2013”, the company said.
