Powel ELIN to manage smart meters at CEZ Mereni Data Center

Data collection solution from Powel to play vital role in Czech Smart Metering pilot

Powel announced today that it has signed a contract as part of a winning bid offered by the consortium of suppliers for the smart metering pilot program at ČEZ Měření. The engagement is for the realization of a data center at ČEZ Měření (ČEZ Metering) including the implementation of the Powel ELIN Smart Meter data collection system and a related SAP NetWeaver interface. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2012.

 

ČEZ Měření is a member of the ČEZ Group, providing the Group electricity metering services. The data center will be one of several data centers which will be used in an automatic metering pilot project. Through its partner Ness Technologies, Powel ELIN will be implemented to support this large-scale, automatic metering pilot project that will examine new ways of power metering at the ČEZ Group. The system will collect power utilization data through the use of intelligent meters. The data collected will be evaluated and used to optimize the management of the electricity network, with a goal of better meeting the needs of distributors, and commercial and private customers.

 

"The WPP AMM project is one of the key projects of CEZ Měření, which will, among others, test the individual functional units of the AMM system. Experience from this project will influence the decision to possibly roll-out the AMM system in the ČEZ distribution network within the Czech Republic," says Ondrej Mamula, project manager for WPP AMM.

 

Powel ELIN is a vendor-independent system that collects and manages consumption data from virtually any utility meter or sub-meter using open protocols. This allows ČEZ Měření to test several types of smart meters, concentrators and communication systems including PLC, radio and GPRS point-to-point. Powel ELIN will also integrate with the SAP NetWeaver interface based on the SAP AMI (MDUS) standard.

 

Fruits of long term cooperation

“The power generation and distribution market has been a long-standing priority for Ness, which puts us in the position to offer our extensive expertise and experience – and our customers know it,” says Mirko Kalous, Managing Director, Ness Czech. “This project is another step in our very successful cooperation with ČEZ Group in the Czech Republic.”

 

Powel has a similar longstanding partnership with Ness cooperating with them to develop and deliver valuable software solutions to utility customers in the Czech Republic. Now the collaboration has been lifted up to another level. Thobias Dencker, VP Business Development at Powel AS, commented 'We are very pleased to be part of this important pilot project that is taking us a step further in realizing our international ambitions.’
