Tieto and Aidon – even stronger together
Aidon is a leading European provider of solutions for smart metering and smart grid applications. Their open architecture–based smart metering systems and new generation energy service devices serve more than one million metering points, and Aidon has won more than 50 % of the Norwegian smart metering market.
"Together with Tieto, Aidon has a complete offering for Advanced Meter and Control Systems (AMS)," says Thor-Erik Næss, CEO, Aidon Norway.
Tieto has developed IT-systems for smart metering since 2007, and has extensive experience working on this in collaboration with leading Nordic energy companies. By combining Aidon’s leading-edge technology for smart metering with Tieto’s own know-how, we can help energy companies become future-proof in a transforming the Nordic energy market.
Together, we will ensure that utilities meet their regulatory requirements, as well as customer and market expectations for reliable deliverables, quality services and efficient work processes.
Tieto Energy Utilities kicked of the strategic collaboration with Aidon in 2014, when Tieto was chosen as a preferred partner for key IT- and project deliveries for the smart meter delivery to Eidsiva Energi in Norway. Aidon delivers its advanced smart metering systems, and the solution is extended with AMITool from Tieto. AMITool is a specialised tool for operating and monitoring smart metering and smart grid infrastructure, and is fully interoperable with Aidon’s solution. In the delivery project, Tieto supports Aidon through testing, establishment of operations, training and project management.
“New smart metering requirements and upcoming regulatory changes mean new challenges and investments for the Nordic energy companies. Our aim is help our customers to be future-proof, meeting their regulatory requirement and fulfilling customer and market expectations. Benefits for the customers, as well as for end-users, are really important. We want to be their preferred and long-term partners,” says Frank Rodahl, Sales Director, Tieto, Norway.
