Yorkshire Water has launched two tenders for three-year smart meter framework agreements to support the utility company’s move towards smart metering.

Bids are now being accepted for both the ‘Smart Metering & Networks’ and ‘Smart Metering New Developments’ contracts.

The metering and networks tender will cover the supply of smart meters, a network provision, the management of the IOT infrastructure required to support smart meter SLAs and all asset management activities relating to the IOT network.

Successful bids for the new development tender will supply smart metering solutions, which includes meter, advanced metering infrastructure and network, for roll-out within a six month time period for selected sites.

Yorkshire Water expects there to be in the region of 25,000 new developments per year.

Adam Smith, asset strategy manager from Yorkshire Water, said: “Smart metering is a growing focus for the business and we are making significant investments in the area to meet our ambitious aims.

“We’re hoping bidding companies will bring a track record of smart meter supply and network maintenance to ensure the project is delivered efficiently while maintaining value for our customers

“We plan to realise a range of benefits across leakage, water efficiency, billing and operational carbon as we transition to using smart solutions, which will give us timely insight to manage our asset base and interact with our customers.”
