Energy software specialist Hansen is partnering Finnish smart grid specialist Aidon to provide a fully managed solution for distribution system operators (DSOs) in the Scandinavian market.

The collaboration covers the delivery of Hansen MDM and associated services for three major DSOs: Kymenlaakson Sähköverkko, Järvi-Suomen Energia, and PKS Sähkönsiirto. A fully managed offering, it provides outsourced meter-reading and reporting capabilities for the Finnish Datahub.

Hansen MDM, part of the Hansen Suite for Energy & Utilities, is a cloud-native implementation able to process large volumes of smart-metering data, and is available in a SaaS deployment model. The cloud-native version of Hansen MDM builds on decades of experience and expertise in Nordic deployments, delivering a full-featured and mature implementation for those utilities that seek the advantages of a cloud-based implementation.

Tommi Blomberg, Chief Executive Officer, Aidon, said “We’re in the age of digitalisation and massive data generation. This partnership with one of the Nordic’s longstanding technology leaders for energy and utilities will ensure that regional DSOs have access to cutting-edge solutions capable of addressing all their smart-metering needs.”

Scott Weir, Division President, Energy and Utilities for the EMEA region at Hansen, said “At Hansen, we are proud of our legacy in the Nordic region, continually powering transformation and infrastructural enablement for several leading energy and utilities players. With our new alliance with Aidon, leveraging the best that Hansen MDM offers, we are set to bring about a new era in customer-experience innovation in the face of a rapidly changing and dynamic marketplace.”
