Itron to Deploy OpenWay® Riva Solution in Thailand

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 22 giugno 2018

Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), which is innovating the way utilities and cities manage energy and water, in collaboration with its consortium partner ALT Telecom Public Company Limited was selected by Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) to deploy the utility’s first Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) using Itron’s OpenWay® Riva solution, including 116,000 OpenWay Riva enabled smart meters. The solution, which will be deployed in the City of Pattaya, will help PEA transform its operations and improve distribution system efficiency, reliability and safety. As one of the largest utilities in southeast Asia, PEA provides electricity to more than 18 million customers. This deployment will help meet PEA’s goal to better understand the benefits of AMI and prepare to roll out AMI nationwide.With the OpenWay Riva solution, PEA will benefit from secure, resilient and multi-application network infrastructure and technology platform that features distributed computing power at every level of the network, including in every electric meter. This enables real-time analysis of data and secured peer-to-peer communication among meters and intelligent devices within the network to manage rapidly changing electric grid conditions. In addition, the solution’s adaptive communications technology dynamically determines the best network path, including radio frequency, cellular or power line carrier, to optimize communications.PEA will also take advantage of Itron’s meter data management solution, Itron Enterprise Edition™(IEE). The solution will provide consistent, meaningful data to upstream utility applications, easing IT integration of AMI and facilitating the distribution of meter data across the utility.

Itron to Monitor Electric System in New Zealand

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 18 maggio 2018

Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), which is innovating the way utilities and cities manage energy and water, signed a contract with Network Waitaki Limited (NWL) in New Zealand to implement Itron’s Distribution Transformer Monitoring (DTM) solution. As a part of the contract, NWL will take advantage of Itron’s cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications for the operation of the DTM solution. With the solution, NWL can provide better quality of service to customers and gain more awareness into issues in the distribution network.Providing services predominantly to rural areas, NWL serves nearly 13,000 customers in New Zealand and covers 2,000 km of powerlines. Currently, the utility relies on a SCADA system for operational awareness, but it is limited to high-voltage network equipment. To improve outage management in the low-voltage network, NWL installed eight DTM units in 2016 as a trial and will install additional units in the next few years to implement a fully functional system. The solution provides timely and detailed visibility into the operational state of distribution transformers, enabling NWL to manage transformer performance and lifecycle based on actual operational conditions rather than using estimates and statistical modeling. NWL will be able to pinpoint distribution issues, improve maintenance and extend the lifetime of transformer assets. Taking advantage of Itron’s SaaS solution, the utility will also be able to remotely read the system, calculate transformer load, and collect and store data.
