Smart-card gas meters will no longer be installed? - Response from Azerigaz


November 15, Fineko/abc.az. Today, a number of information resources have reported about the refusal of gas supplier Azerigaz from smart-card gas meters and in general that meters of this generation will no longer be installed. We officially declare that the written information does not correspond to reality, and such a decision has not been made.

ABC.AZ received such information from Azerigaz.

According to Azerigaz, due to financial limitations the gas supplier reduced the purchase of smart-card gas meters from ITRON GALLUS. But installation of smart-card gas meters will be continued in the future. For example, in multi-storey buildings constructed by housing cooperatives mechanical gas meters are not installed because those gas meters are inside of apartments (on open balconies), as this creates difficulties for the registration of gas consumption. So, smart-card gas meters will be installed in such buildings and be replaced by meters of the same brand in case of malfunctions, as well as during the inspection.
