The E& Enterprise contract consists in a project to provide smart-communication services for water and energy infrastructure in Abu Dhabi. With a term of more than five years, this project will strengthen the process started by the Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (Taqa) to provide connectivity to its advanced metering infrastructure (AMI).

Datakorum, an investee of Almar Water Solutions, will supply the 5G gateways that provide data connectivity to ensure interaction between end users, distribution meters, and the AMI. This will enable Taqa to achieve 100% connectivity between the smart meters in Abu Dhabi.

The scope of the contract initially covers more than 50,000 5G gateways, with NB-IoT and LTE-M connectivity, which will connect dozens of Plug&Play bright water and electricity meters that support all of the communication protocols currently used by this type of meter from the leading international brands, and five years of associated services. This real-time connectivity will give customers access to automatic and detailed readings of their current and past water and energy consumption to better understand and control consumption. In addition, this network will serve as the basis for future demand-side management programs, and the meters will pave the way for smart-grid objectives such as capacity control and outage management.
