U.S. Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (VIWAPA) has selected a joint solution from Itron and Tantalus for a full deployment of an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) communications network and Itron advanced meters for more than 55,000 electric customers throughout the islands of Saint Croix, Saint John and Saint Thomas.

According to the companies, this project, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, will leverage multiple communication technologies through Tantalus' utility network TUNet platform with Itron AMI-ready meters, which will help facilitate the use of advanced applications such as automated metering, remote service disconnect/reconnect, revenue protection and demand management.

VIWAPA will utilize the TUNet-enabled CENTRON II electric meters for the deployment, the companies add.
