New deadline extension for digital power meters tender

The deadline for an international tender leading to the supply and installation of 200,000 digital electricity consumption meters in various parts of the country, as a pilot program, will be extended following a number of requests by participants, as well as because of the need for clarification of various terms, HEDNO, the Hellenic Electricity Distribution Network Operator – locally known as DEDDIE – has announced.

The tender’s new deadline will be announced within the month of January, the operator noted.

The previous deadline of January 30, reset for a third time, comes just days after the upcoming snap elections of January 25, announced several days ago. Their lead-up has stalled developments in many domains, including the country’s energy sector.
