Kaifa bags smart metering project in Uzbekistan

Shenzhen Kaifa Technology (Chengdu) has signed a contract with KT to provide Central AMI System (CAS) for operating 8 million smart metering points in Uzbekistan.

KAIFA will deploy a package of AMI system (HES&MDMS system) to power firm Uzbekenergo in the next three years.

The solution includes automatic data collection, real-time grid monitoring, remote configuration and control, smart work force management and mobile installation support.

KAIFA’s advanced data analysis technology, as an enabler of the optimisation of the grid and fast trouble shooting, brings the deep insight of energy consumption and distribution to the customer.

The open standards and future-proof architecture design that are used make the systems seamlessly interact with other IT systems and interoperable with the meters from different vendors.

This is an additional contract after KAIFA successfully deployed smart meter system in Samarkand, Bukhara, and Jizzakh of Uzbekistan in 2017.

The AMI system for three cities can manage more than 1 million smart meters, and KAIFA is providing complete supporting service such as on-site survey and diagnosis, installation, and commission. 

Based on the cooperation in Uzbekistan’s project, KAIFA and KT signed a strategic cooperation agreement to explore more opportunities in energy and IoT field.

“With our AMI experience and reliable smart metering solution, we are delighted to build long-term cooperation relationship with KT for mutual benefits of the development in the global energy market,” said Senhui Zhang, CEO of Kaifa Metering.
