L&T, Cyan tie-up for advanced metering
The Metering & Protection Systems business of Larsen & Toubro and UK-based Cyan Holdings have agreed to form a strategic partnership to collaborate in the development, supply and delivery of advanced metering solutions comprising L&T electricity meters integrated with Cyan’s wireless communication modules for AMI, Smart Metering and Smart Grid Pilot projects.
Both parties have identified a number of projects in India where there is a need for 865MHz based interoperable Wireless AMI with a requirement for end to end communications enabling remote tamper detection and reporting. The parties have entered into this strategic alliance as they believe that this technology is likely to become a major factor in the fast growing Indian electricity metering market.
L&T is a leading supplier of electricity meters and metering solutions to Indian electricity utilities for over 15 years and has an installation base exceeding 12 million meters.
