Nama Group has an­nounced the com­mence­ment of the live oper­a­tion of their cen­trally im­ple­mented au­to­matic me­ter read­ing (AMR) project, de­signed for high-value cus­tomers in the elec­tric­ity sec­tor in Oman

The project was car­ried out by a team of Omani ex­perts from the elec­tric­ity dis­tri­bu­tion com­pa­nies in Nama Group in part­ner­ship with CESI Mid­dle East FZE, a sub­sidiary of CESI, and WIPRO Lim­ited as the sys­tem in­te­gra­tor.

The AMR sys­tem is a cen­tral stan­dard smart me­ter­ing sys­tem that will en­able elec­tric­ity com­pa­nies to ob­tain ac­cu­rate, hourly me­ter read­ings from cus­tomers and col­lect their con­sump­tion in an au­to­mated man­ner.

Nama Group CEO Eng Omar Al Wa­haibi stated, “The AMR is an­other mile­stone in our con­tin­u­ous ef­forts to drive the elec­tric­ity sec­tor to en­hance ef­fi­cien­cies, re­duce elec­tric­ity losses and pro­vide bet­ter ser­vices to our cus­tomers. More­over, this project sets a strong ba­sis for pro­vid­ing more ad­vanced ser­vices to our cus­tomers and helps us to be more ef­fec­tive in serv­ing their needs in an ef­fi­cient man­ner, in our quest to re­alise Nama’s vi­sion of be­com­ing a lead­ing ref­er­ence for util­ity ser­vice ex­cel­lence by 2022.”

Dr Man­soor Al Hi­nai, Nama’s V-P dis­tri­bu­tion, added, “This project will help the sec­tor im­ple­ment its fu­ture vi­sion of build­ing Oma­nis ca­pa­bil­i­ties and put them at the fore­front of lead­ing tech­nolo­gies in the elec­tric­ity in­dus­try. The project will also sup­port the im­ple­men­ta­tion of pri­vati­sa­tion and elec­tric­ity sup­ply com­pe­ti­tion.”
