Kenda wins £280,000 metering contract from National Grid

 

Southampton-based Kenda Electronic Systems has been awarded a contract worth £280,000 by the National Grid Company for supplying operational metering summator (OMS) systems.

The OMS systems will be installed at 45 grid supply points around the country to enable National Grid to obtain accurate real-time values of the power being drawn from the network.

When compared with the power going into the network from the various generating companies, this information will provide National Grid with accurate measurements to allow tighter computerised modelling of the system, thereby helping it to reduce operating costs.

Following a competitive tender, Kenda was awarded the contract not only because of its long experience in producing metering summators but also because it was best able to supply the equipment in the timescales required. Deliveries will commence in September 1996.
