Smart Metering

GMC Utilities Group in partnership with Diehl Metering Services and Hydrometer GmbH provide innovative technologies and specialist services to the utility and smart metering industry previously not available in Ireland.

The Group’s philosophy has always been to invest in cutting edge and proven applications to give our customers the advantage, reliability, efficiency and interoperability required from modern metering solutions.

We have successfully designed, installed, activated and operated a drive by AMR system for the four Dublin Local Authorities’ Water Departments. The system is currently the largest of its type in Europe and is a model some of the largest European water companies are seeking to emulate.

GMC Utilities Group is currently operating Fixed Network Systems (AMI) for The Office of Public Works in Phoenix Park, Garda Headquarters Phoenix Park and Dublin Port Authority. In addition we have supplied EMS systems to PayPal, Google and the Department of Agriculture.

The Group is also utilizing mobile Fixed Network / GPRS technology on the Dublin Region Watermain Rehabilitation Project. The technology was used to remotely log over 4,000 customer supplies post rehabilitation to check for the presence of customer side leakage. Our Fixed Network / GPRS technology is also used by Dublin City Council and Fingal County Council for private side leakage assessment and as a meter reading solution.

GMC Utilities Group personnel strive to deliver projects which surpass our client’s expectations. Our system solutions adopt a cost orientated and quality driven approach from the outset in order fulfill this ethos.
