Country: Latvia
Partner: ELKO SIA
Customer: AS "Sadales tīkls"
Technology: PRIME/G3, LTE, KMS Hardware Security
Quantity of meters: 110000

Description of the project:
ADD Grup in cooperation with ELKO and AS "Sadales tīkls" in 2014 successfully launched AMI project covering deployment of 110 000 smart meters in different regions scattered across Latvia. In 2015 ADD Grup received a request form AS "Sadales tīkls" to run a pilot project based on G3-PLC technology in AS "Sadales tīkls" low voltage grid. The main challenge for ADD Grup was to run G3-PLC on the same meters that had already been installed in the grid and were working on PRIME technology.

Quantity of meters: 110000

Description of the project:
This deployment took place in 2012, when Energa Operator installed 110000 Smart Meters delivered by ADD Grup as a first stage of rolling out Advanced Metering Infrastructure. Due to ADDAX Technology’s high performance, proper project management, close cooperation and coordination among all project participants, Energa Operator has one of the most successful AMI projects in Europe. Based on the results of Stage One of Energa Operator project, ADD Grup has established a new benchmark for global smart metering market.

Country: Poland
Partner: Arcus
Customer: Energa Operator
Technology: PRIME
Quantity of meters: 310000

Description of the project:
ADD Grup and its partners supplied 310 000 PRIME compliant meters to Energa Operator, one of the largest Distribution System operator in Poland. This project was a step forward toward the implementation of open, fully interoperable PLC solution. The project proved to be successful. The field pilot demonstrated the full AMI functionality of ADDAX meters: cost-effective, open PLC communications, remote firmware update, remote disconnection, tamper protection.

Country: Poland
Partner: ADD Polska, ADD Bulgaria
Customer: PGE
Technology: PRIME
Quantity of meters: 55000

Description of the project:
PGE Dystrybucja S.A., as a result of the tender, has awarded the consortium of ADD Grup, ADD Polska and ADD Bulgaria the contract for pilot implementation of a smart metering system (AMI) in a branch of Białystok and Łódź- covering more than 55 000 Smart Electricity Meters. ADD Grup offered for the project its new generation of meters and data concentrators based on a Universal Hardware Platform that supports PRIME with possibility for upgrade to v1.4 and G3-PLC. Thanks to the AMI implementation PGE wants to reduce the operational costs and improve quality of power supply. The implementation includes the integration with third party Head End System and integration with cellular operator. The experience of ADD Grup gained at previous implementations of 420 000 meters in Poland is valuable for the deployment at PGE Dystrybucja S.A.

Country: Hungary
Partner: Dobos
Customer: E.ON
Technology: Pole-mounted metering solution, S-FSK 61334-5-1
Quantity of meters: 3750

Description of the project:
E.ON Hungary decided to curb illegal electricity consumption and started a pilot project to test new methods for decreasing the theft rate. E.ON chose to test ADDAX Pole Mounted Meter, a unique metering device developed and supplied by ADD Grup, a leading provider of PLC Technology, Advanced Metering Infrastructure and Smart Meters. The results of this pilot project were promising. Now E.ON is waiting for the technical and social outcomes of the project and it is anticipated that pole mounted meters can be an effective method to fight against illegal energy consumption.

Country: Lithuania
Partner: Tecnolines
Customer: ESO
Technology: PRIME
Quantity of meters: 3000

Description of the project:
Lithuanian National DSO ESO awarded the implementation of Smart Metering pilot project to the consortium of UAB Tecnolines, SIA Elko and ADD-Production S.R.L. as a result of competitive international tender. The AMI solution comprised more than 3000 smart electricity meters, data concentrators, Head-End System. Following communication technologies were used in this project: - PLC PRIME as main communication channel with all meters having PLC on-board; 3GPP (2G/3G) communication as back-up solution for specific field conditions.

Country: Bulgaria
Partner: ADD Bulgaria
Customer: EVN
Technology: PRIME
Quantity of meters: 550000

Description of the project:
ADD Bulgaria, ADD Grup’s partner in Bulgaria, inked a major deal with EVN Bulgaria for the delivery of 550000 smart electricity meters based on PRIME technology. EVN has been using ADDAX technology since 2009 with more than 500 000 meters communicating via PLC. Over the years the technology changed from FSK communication, to S-FSK and now the time has come for PRIME. ADDAX AMI System demonstrated its reliability over the years.

Country: FYR Macedonia
Partner: ADD Bulgaria
Customer: EVN
Technology: S-FSK IEC 61334-5-1
Quantity of meters: 35000

Description of the project:
EVN Macedonia forges ahead with its smart meter deployment programme using ADD Grup’s ADDAX smart meters. The utility started it smart metering programme with a proof of concept in 2011 in order to understand the cost/benefit of the rollout. The main drivers for EVN’s smart meter initiative include the need to decrease electricity theft, which stood at 18.4% in 2011. Some of EVN wins since the beginning of the rollout include a decrease in electricity losses – down to 14.9% in 2015.

Country: Kyrgyz Republic
Partner: AK-AY Elektrik
Customer: Severeleсtro
Technology: Part of meters were delivered on Universal Platform (supports S-FSK, PRIME, G3)
Quantity of meters: 100000

Description of the project:
Severelectro, a leading electricity power utility in Kyrgyzstan, awarded to AK-AY Elektrik, ADD Grup’s distributor, the contract for delivery and installation of Advanced Metering Infrastructure of more than 100 000 meters. For this project, ADD GRUP supplied 100 000+ Smart Meters as well as the Data Concentrators based on ADDAX Technology. The solution deployed uses Power Line Communications (PLC) based on S-FSK IEC 61334-5-1 as well as on Universal Platform that supports S-FSK, PRIME and G3 for data transmission between meters and concentrators. The communication between the concentrators and the Data Center is made through GPRS and CDMA. The use ADDAX IMS helps SeverElectro to reduce non-commercial losses as well as generates low operational costs due to use of PLC.
