Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan Government launched AMI project with ADB funding in 2012. Through the global tender, Kaifa and Korean Telecom won the project after intense competition with the giant companies in the industry. Kaifa's solution is equipped with a comprehensive anti-tamper multi-function electricity meters. By combining various communication methods, it realizes full coverage of the terminal equipment, real-time data transmission and high communication success rate. With a robust design, the products can effectively adapt to the harsh environment with the poor power quality, the wide temperature range of Central Asia, and the large temperature difference between day and night. The customized MDMS system from Kaifa helps customers achieve remote prepayment, greatly reduces the line loss rate, effectively curbs the situation of malicious arrears of electricity, and improves the cash flow of the power company. In addition, the alarms and events are automatically pushed from the equipment instantly. The utility can identify the field abnormalities in time. The grid quality is enhanced and the service quality is improved. This project has greatly improved the efficiency of product installation, system operation and maintenance through effective site survey and on-site workflow management system." READ MORE
