First Order for Kamstrup's OMNIA Smart Grid-Suite signed in Denmark
The energy supplier, Østjysk Energi (DK), has signed contract on a complete wireless smart metering system, including 30,000 smart meters. This makes Østjysk Energi the first utility to order the new smart grid-platform, OMNIA.
Installation Manager, Brian Hansen, from Østjysk Energi explains the choice of the OMNIA Smart Grid-platform:
Østjysk Energi further mentions the system’s distributed intelligence as a decisive factor that will save valuable installation time and provide detailed insight into the low voltage grid.
Immediately after installation the meters will communicate their identity to the head-end system. The enhanced intelligence in meters and concentrators will provide quick responses as well as a high data frequency from the low voltage grid. “We have in our supply area among our customers a large number of solar panels which poses a voltage quality challenge that the meters must be able to handle. The OMNIPOWER smart meters will push alarms in case of over-voltage, and we will be able to define maximum values and avoid critical sags and swells,” Brian Hansen says.
