Itron finishes Dubai district cooling meter system
Firm implements meter data management system for Emicool
Itron has reported that it has finished installing a meter data management (MDM) system for Dubai’s Emirates District Cooling (Emicool), covering Emicool customers in Dubai Investment Park and Dubai Motor City. The new system will allow Emicool to automate meter reading schedules, streamline customer billing and utilise a single alarm system for all its meters.
Itron has been working with Emicool on the scheme since late 2010, and has provided project management, on-site system deployment and support. The MDM will integrate all Emicool’s district cooling meters into a single unified system and consolidates data from different meter manufacturers.
“Itron’s solution is a critical part of our long-term plans for transforming our operations to become more efficient and lower the total cost of ownership. We needed one system that could consolidate our billing and reporting across systems and technologies in order to more effectively manage and analyse information from our cooling meters,” said Emicool head of Infrastructure and Data Control Koussai Mezher.
