TNEB formally authorises Cyan customer to start pilot installation
Cyan Holdings plc (AIM: CYAN.L), the integrated system design company delivering wireless solutions for lighting control and utility metering, today gives an update regarding the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (TNEB) tender.
Following the submission of proposals for the tender by 16 companies, one of Cyan's metering partners in India has now received a formal letter from TNEB inviting them to install a 500 unit pilot in Tamil Nadu state. Cyan believes this is the first company to receive such a letter. The letter requests that the pilot begin as soon as possible. The Cyan partner in question is the principal supplier of electricity meters to TNEB and is ready to start the pilot immediately. As part of the Technical Specification of the tender, the bidders have to demonstrate the suitability of the tendered meters with respect to the performance, communication and networking capabilities to the assessment committee. Cyan believes that its 865 Mhz (AMI) with data concentrators is the only one that meets this Technical Specification.
TNEB plan to replace 18M meters and this is the first tender as part of the program. Given the significant financial cost and expected impact in terms of reduction of AT&C* losses in replacing 18M meters, TNEB are taking the selection process very seriously. We have been told that the decision process has to be completely transparent for all participants and this has resulted in an understandable extension to the timeline.
Further information regarding the status of the other meter manufacturers who have bid on the TNEB tender, as well as the duration of the pilots and expected date of orders, will be provided as it becomes available.
John Cronin, Executive Chairman at Cyan added, "We are delighted that the first of our partners has been formally requested to enter the pilot stage of the tender and all indications are that Cyan's partners are in a very strong position. While the process is taking longer than originally stated by TNEB, this is evidence that progress is being made. The Board remains confident that the outcome of this tender process will be transformational for Cyan in terms of financial situation and market perception."
