In 2016 ADD GRUP together with TRANSTECH a.s. Slovakia and Energa Operator Poland held a two-day seminar for the representatives of Slovakia's power grids, in which Energa Operator shared its experience of large-scale implementation of smart metering on PLC basis and described the advantages of PRIME technology. Inspired by the positive experience of Energa Operator, Východoslovenská distribučná, Košice (VSD), part of innogy Group decided to try PRIME technology in its electrical networks. ADD GRUP gladly accepted this idea, in connection with which an agreement was reached which laid the foundation in a trust-worthy relationship that is based on mutual respect and willingness to succeed.

The PRIME meter proposed by ADD GRUP collect data every 15 min and perform an irreproachable index which left a good overall impression about the technology and the company’s potential.

At this stage of the project deployment our Slovakian companions from VSD express the desire to extend the pilot project to another 100pcs of PLC PRIME single-phase meters and 1 router due to good experience and performed results


The third annual edition of the Utility-to-Utility User Group Conference was hosted by ENERGA- OPERATOR SA (EOP) for the first time.
