Kenda wins series of contracts to upgrade tariff metering systems for RWE npower


Meter care specialist Kenda Electronic Systems has recently been awarded a series of three contracts by RWE npower to upgrade the tariff metering systems at its Cowes, Tilbury and Fawley power stations.

At Cowes, the recent installation of an additional circuit and other plant upgrades provided an opportunity for Kenda to supply a complete tariff metering cubicle, comprising main and check meters, a Kenda Meteor 32-channel outstation and all other cubicle components and wiring.
