Sochi Winter Olympics export order for Yorkshire company
Electricity consumption at the Sochi Winter Olympics is being monitored with innovative technology designed and manufactured by a West Yorkshire company.
Several hundred Cube IP 400 Internet enabled electricity consumption meters have been supplied to the Sochi Winter Olympics by ND Metering Solutions Ltd, Bradford, in series of export orders worth a total of £55,000.
The panel-mounted energy and power quality meters are being used to monitor the energy consumption of different aspects of the event. Each meter is fitted with an internal network interface so it can be plugged into a local intranet and its energy supply and quality data can be shared between different management systems.
ND Metering founder and director, Kris Szajdzicki, who visited Russia last autumn as part of a trade mission led by business secretary, Vince Cable, says: “The type and volume of equipment supplied will allow the organisers to connect them into the main power supplies for a whole stadium, the lighting, heating or air conditioning and plug it into an intranet so real-time data can be interrogated by facilities managers so they can instantly understand what is happening and react quickly if problems occur.
“This model of the Cube IP 400 enables multiple useraccess so each person can collect different data relevant to their role such as energy management, demand control and power quality, at the same time, which makes the system versatile and cost-effective.”
ND Metering Solutions, which was founded as a partnership in 1965 and became a limited company in 1988, has 36 staff, a £3m turnover and exports its products worldwide and has even had them installed in Antarctica.
