Vattenfall Services and Enoro have joined forces to offer 144 Swedish utilities a Metering solution for district heating, electricity and water. The solution is offered within a four-year framework agreement signed on 1 July 2015 by the prime-contracting partner Vattenfall Services and VÄRMEK, a Swedish procurement association in the utility sector. VÄRMEK estimates that the total order potential is SEK 15 million over a four-year period.
Cost efficiency, regulatory compliance and improved work efficiency are the biggest benefits expected for VÄRMEK's members. The Metering solution includes a Meter Data Management service, based on Enoro's GENERIS product, already with more than 400 installations in nine European countries, and a leading market position in the Nordic markets.
"We are very proud to have won this framework agreement with our strategic partner, Vattenfall Services. Together we have a strong offering, which we believe will be interesting to VÄRMEK's member companies. We really look forward to meeting VÄRMEK's members with Vattenfall Services and discussing the future opportunities together," says Anders H. Lier, President & CEO, Enoro.
The Metering solution covers optional Automatic Meter Reading functionalities, visualization and Big Data analysis tools, for the use of the full potential of smart meters. In addition, balance settlement functionalities are available as an optional Energy Data Management module. The Automatic Meter Reading and Meter Data Management / Energy Data Management functionalities are provided from separate platforms and can be selected independently.
The whole offering is provided as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, where members only pay for the usage of the software, instead of having to make hardware or platform investments, like in traditional on-premise installations. Meter Data Management and Energy Data Management functionalities are installed so that several companies share the same technological platform, but they are logically separated from each other. This multi-tenant installation provides large-scale benefits, both from a functionality standpoint and from an economic point of view, since the costs are shared among a large number of customers.
