A long-standing cooperation agreement between Landis+Gyr and Polish distribution system operator Tauron GZE, previously Vattenfall Distribution Poland, has been extended: Landis+Gyr has successfully delivered inter-operable smart meters under a turn-key project for a smart metering pilot in the south of the country. The announcement comes after the successful deployment of nearly 12 000 m as part of the Landis+Gyr Gridstream solution offering for the Tauron pilot in 2011. This is one of the first smart metering projects in Poland where interoperability is playing a key role in the choice of meter technology and supplier. While still only in the pilot phase, the system has already shown its capability potential in terms of identifying technical losses within the network as well as losses caused by tampering. Customer service can now be further improved as the system provides near real time consumption information and enables on-demand reading requests as well as remote load control.
