The City of New York: Pilot Metering Project
RGBS was the prime contractor for the NYC Pilot Metering Project. The implementation of an Advanced Metering
Infrastructure was required for revenue grade measurement and verification of utilities.
The multi-phased project encompassed over 60 buildings requiring nearly 180 new meter installations and coordination with multiple engineering teams. Additionally electrical and mechanical contractors were supervised. RGBS teams performed site survey, design, and engineering. Engineered drawings provided installation detail for networking, metering, and monitoring hardware and software components. After the complete installation, the monitoring system automatically collected and analyzed electrical, steam, fuel oil and gas data. The project was well received and especially praised for local site project management.
New York City is submetering every city owned facility throughout the 5 boroughs. This Project was built upon a Pilot Project, containing over 180 Advanced Metering Solutions. Each Sit has its local data collection system, which reports to a main server. There are Schneider Electric Components, Spirax Sarco (Gas and Water Meters)
Components, Tridium Niagara based Data collection devices integrated as part of the entire monitoring system.
