In a comment, CEO Bård Benum stated: “We expect a growing activity level within maintenance and renewal of the grid, implementation of Smart Metering communications and meters in Norway, and a start to the development of the smart grid. By acquiring Elsmart with their portfolio of products, services, and expertise Powel will be able to offer solutions that simplify these work processes.”

 

Effective Web solutions
