Rueil-Malmaison, September 21th 2020
In September, ELLEVIO will continue to improve the Swedish electricity system by being one the first Nordic DSO to start its 2nd generation smart meters large scale rollout. This massive rollout is the result of joint achievements between ELLEVIO, Sagemcom and its local Partner, ONE Nordic.
Since the award in March 2019, Sagemcomhas developed and delivered a new generation of S211 single phase meters and T211 polyphase meters which allow ELLEVIO to take up the new energy landscape and customer care. The advanced deep indoor dual cellular technology LTE NB IoT + LTE Cat-M is used to secure the reliability of the solution.
In less than 8 months and within a specific context, Sagemcomhas developed and certified the new generation of smart meters which are installed in the field by ONE Nordic since June 2020 in Stockholm area. The new key features have already been deployed offering a combination of end-user experience - through a customer local interface (P1 Port) - and Low- Voltage network management; with alarms delivery including ‘Last gasp’ messages sent in case of power outage, neutral fault detection, harmonic distortion, remote on-demand operations, etc… Such metering capabilities represent the drivers of future grid monitoring to provide end-customers service at its best. As of today, the first return of experience has reached very impressive results with a connectivity service level above 99% allowing to kick off the start of the large scale roll out starting September 2020 in all the region where Ellevio operates as network owner.
Furthermore, the evolutivity of the solution is guaranteed by field proven mass firmware update campaign possibility to ensure that today’s end-to-end solution will comply with tomorrow’s requirements. In this manner, the long-term Partnership with ELLEVIO, ONE Nordic and Sagemcomcontributes to the future sustainable energy ecosystems.
“The strong and transparent partnership between Ellevio, Sagemcom and ONE Nordic has resulted in the completion of a very successful full scale pilot, deploying the solution and metering equipment for our customers in the field, hence, Ellevio’s program for the next generation of smart metering now proceeds with the mass rollout of this new technology. We are simultaneously taking very important steps towards the much needed energy transition. The introduction of smart metering is a fundamental component in the smart grid, which is necessary to increase and enable the electrification of our societies and to provide enhanced energy insight to our customers”, said Johan Löwemo, Head of the Program at Ellevio.
This ambitious project strengthens Sagemcom European leadership in Smart Metering solutions and its capacity to fulfil on its customers’ objectives.
