Bulgaria, partner of ADD GRUP on Bulgarian market, has been
recently awarded a contract for the supply of 45 000 single-phase
and 1 200 three-phase ADDAX meters during 2012-2013. The devices
belong to 7th series ADDAX IMS and are based on open
standard DLMS/COSEM and S-FSK modulation for PLC communication.
AMI for electricity, the project involves AMR for multi-utility
metering available within the framework of a single system ADDAX
to the fact that ADD GRUP’s advanced metering infrastructure
allows the integration of the meters from other manufacturers
into the same system, EVN Bulgaria will benefit from having the
data readings of electricity, heat and water in the same data
management center, thus significantly reducing deployment,
operational and maintenance costs.
three-phase meters will be installed at 1 200 heating stations in
Bulgaria. Each ADDAX meter, equipped with additional
communication module, will be connected to a heat meter and two
water meters via M-Bus and so, the ADDAX meters will serve not
only for electricity reading, but also as gateways for displaying
the consumption of water and heat.
tender recently won by ADD Bulgaria is for the supply of 21 000
ADDAX meters to EVN Macedonia within the next two years. The
decision on this bid was also based on economic efficiency but
unlike the first one, this project will be deployed in trouble
areas of Macedonia, in the regions with a high rate of
electricity pilferage and other types of power losses.
Macedonia is going to minimize the non-technical losses using
ADDAX anti-fraud protection and balance metering along with
cutting down the operational costs for meter reading and data
the economic efficiency of these projects, a sharp increase of
orders is expected for the years 2012-2014.” said Krasimir
Kuzmov, Executive Director of ADD Bulgaria.
