Electric Power Company of Serbia (EPS) said it selected Tcom d. o. o. from Belgrade for the manual metering application for mobile phones and equipment. The deal worth RSD 240 million (EUR 2 million) without value-added tax, marked JN-1000-0378-2015, was arranged in a negotiated procurement, after an invitation to the now hired contractor, as the company had previously won the pilot project contract together with Asseco SE d. o. o., the documentation said. EPS needed to implement a uniform system in the whole territory of Serbia, after it was introduced in several branches by Tcom, the sole owner of the VSS Optical Reading Device application, according to the procurement information published on September 25.

The aim is to accurately measure power consumption and monitor if 700,000 meters are working properly and to track the activity of operators in the field at 100,000 measuring devices. The project includes hardware: servers, 1,480 smartphones with 3G services contracts, ADSL communication equipment, 500 automatic electronic locks with 3G contracts. The deadline for the service is 180 days.

The aim is to accurately measure power consumption and monitor if 700,000 meters are working properly and to track the activity of operators in the field at 100,000 measuring devices.

The company will use an EUR 80 million loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the European Investment Bank for a procurement through its second contract within the EPS Metering project. EBRD said in September that tendering for on-site installation of medium- and low-voltage devices is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of this year.

The contract for information technology (IT) infrastructure and security (hardware, software), concentrators, metering equipment, installation and integration of IT environment was awarded in September to a consortium headed by French companies Atos WorldGrid SAS and Sagemcom Energy & Telecom. In a procurement financed by a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the European Investment Bank, EUR 31.9 million was saved, according to chief executive officer of EPS Aleksandar Obradović. The first delivery in the project’s first phase is planned for November 5 this year, and the last one for September 7, 2017.
