Siemens signs British Gas meter contract

UK-based Siemens Metering Services has announced that it has agreed a five-year £100m meter-reading data-collection deal with energy supplier British Gas – the company’s largest contract win since 2003.

The original meter-reading contract was awarded to Siemens in 2003 and covered two out of eight of British Gas’s geographical areas, serving approximately 2.5 million domestic and business customers in London, the South East and the East of England.

The contract, effective from 1 April 2010, doubles the meter-reading and data-collection footprint to approximately five million
customers and provides services for 50 per cent of British Gas’s national coverage, with the addition of services for Wales, the South West and the Midlands.
