(Business in Cameroon) - Eneo Cameroon, subsidiary of British Actis, unveils more on its program of deploying prepaid and postpaid smart meters in Cameroon. On the sidelines of the International Labor Day, MD Joël Nana Kontchou said the program is already underway.
“Despite logistics issues observed early this year, the execution pace significantly accelerated in recent weeks. This gives hope for achieving the year-end target which is to install 20,000 prepaid meters and 40,000 postpaid smart meters,” the MD said.
The number of smart meters is expected to increase 40-fold this year compared to 2017 when the company deployed 500 such meters in Douala and Yaoundé. The smart meters being installed are linked to the Metering Management System (MMS), a remote meter index acquisition system acquired in 2009 that makes it possible to read the meters remotely.
