Singaporean consortium to pilot smart meters in Abu Dhabi

Smart meter and leakage detection systems will be deployed in the emirate.

Nine organisations in Singapore signed a Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) with Abu Dhabi’s Department of Energy (DOE) to pilot smart utility solutions in the emirate. 

Traditionally, Abu Dhabi depends on oil and gas but is now diversifying into infrastructure, manufacturing, and services. As such, the emirate is looking to boost the efficiency of its utilities by reducing transmission losses in power and water with the use of smart metering and leakage detection systems.

“As Abu Dhabi accelerates its economic diversification, it is also modernising its utilities sector. Singapore companies’ smart utilities solutions will do well in Abu Dhabi, especially in water management and electricity grid management,” said G. Jayakrishnan, group director of IE Singapore in Middle East and Africa, in a press release.

The MOUs, signed on 20 and 21 February, was facilitated by International Enterprise (IE) Singapore. It was signed by Singapore national water agency PUB; Meinhardt; Zweec Analytics; SP Group’s global training arm SP Global Solutions; Energy Market Company; Diamond Energy; ADDO AI; Singapore Management University; and National University Singapore.
