Smart Grid Partnership between Kamstrup and Powel
Kamstrup A/S and Powel AS has announced a partnership that will enable utilities that are using both the Powel ELIN system and Kamstrup’s Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) to base the integration between the two systems on a standard adaptor.
Powel ELIN is a vendor-independent system that collects and manages consumption data, alarms and events from virtually any utility meter or submeter using open protocols. Kamstrup’s AMI consists of an open, interoperable head-end system, a high-performance, highly scalable and future-proof wireless communication infrastructure and Smart Meters for electricity, heat, cooling, water and gas.
Lars Lindström, Product Manager at Powel (http://www.powel.com)
Lars Bo Kristensen, Division Director at Kamstrup (http://www.kamstrup.com), is looking forward to being able to deliver solutions, where customers can take advantage of the new partnership. Mr. Kristensen says: “Powel is delivering business-critical software and associated services specially designed for energy and technical infrastructure companies and is one of the leading companies within this industry in the Nordics. We are looking forward to do business together with Powel both in the Nordics and in emerging markets in Europe and in the Middle East”.
The adaptor will be available in a “basic version” supporting the meter-to-cash process via integration between Powel ELIN and Kamstrup’s head-end, Kamstrup UtiliDriver®
The basic version of the adaptor is scheduled for release in Q4 2012 and the extended version in Q1 2013.
