Power Measurement Provides Energy for Jordan

November 30, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

The National Electric Power Co. (NEPCO) for the Kingdom of Jordan has chosen an enterprise energy management system from Power Measurement Ltd. (Victoria, BC) to monitor the region’s newly restructured electricity transmission grid. The Internet-based system will use a network of approximately 150 intelligent ION 7500™ energy meters to track and verify energy transactions between Jordan’s generation and transmission companies.

The ION® energy management system was selected to help facilitate the deregulation of Jordan’s national electricity supply network. The initiative dates back to 1999 when the government of Jordan chose to split the state-owned NEPCO into three legally and financially independent operating companies. The restructured power sector is intended to create a competitive, financially viable environment for the production and sale of electricity.
