Kamstrup says that Danish utility Ostjysk Energi has signed a contract on a complete wireless smart metering system, including 30,000 smart meters. Ostjysk Energi, which supplies electricity to over 57,000 customers in East Jutland, is the first utility to order Kamstrup's new smart grid platform, OMNIA.

"We have in our supply area among our customers a large number of solar panels, which poses a voltage-quality challenge that the meters must be able to handle," notes Brian Hansen, the utility's installation manager. "The OMNIPOWER smart meters will push alarms in case of overvoltage, and we will be able to define maximum values and avoid critical sags and swells."
