CyanConnode wins Platinum at ISGF Innovation Awards
CyanConnode (AIM:CYANCONNODE.L), the integrated system and software design company delivering mesh based flexible wireless solutions for utility metering and lighting control, has received a Platinum award for Best Smart Grid Project in India by Industry at the ISGF Innovation Awards.
The ISGF Innovation Awards 2018 is a global event that focuses and celebrates personalities, projects and products from utilities and technology companies that have set a new benchmark in Smart Grid and Smart City Segments.
CyanConnode was nominated for its IoT communication platform, enabling Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) for a smart metering deployment at Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Corporation Ltd (CESC), Mysore. The public utility was the first of 14 smart grid pilots to be rolled out in 2017 under the Smart Grid Task Force in India. The AMI solution featured 21,824 smart meters with associated hardware and software to enable remote communication between meter and utility and was supplied end-to-end by CyanConnode.
John Cronin, Executive Chairman of CyanConnode, commented: “During implementation this project has become a valuable reference for the wider Indian Smart Grid community and in July, Energy Minister DK Shivakumar inspected the first phase and confirmed that CESC, based in Mysore, will expand its smart grid project to the entire city.
“CyanConnode holds a leading position in the Indian market and has a collaborative approach and commitment to transferring skills and experience to its partners in-country, which supports Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Skill India’ and ‘Make in India’ initiatives. The company works closely with the ISGF, IPPAI and IEEMA to guide regulatory policy, influence best practice and ensure that it is consistently meeting the needs of the Indian smart grid and helping to bring India’s power infrastructure in line with developed markets worldwide. We are honoured to be recognized for our work in this area and thank the ISGF for their ongoing support.”
