India-based West Bengal State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd. (WBSEDCL) has selected Landis+Gyr to provide more than 1.5 million digital electricity meters for the utility's modernization and rural electrification program.

The delivery period will begin by month's end and will conclude 10 months later. Landis+Gyr says this challenging schedule will require a dedicated manufacturing setup for the company’s Joka unit, located in WBSEDCL's hometown of Kolkata.

"Landis+Gyr is the largest international player in the electricity metering space within India," says Landis+Gyr India's CEO, Sandip Mukherjee. "We are honored by WBSEDCL's continued trust in Landis+Gyr by selecting us for this contract."
