MicroTech Industries (Pvt.) Ltd (MTI) is honored with a prestigious "National Excellence Award 2014" at the Engineers Day Celebrations & IEP National Excellence Award Distribution Ceremony organized by The Institution of Engineers Pakistan (IEP). The ceremony took place on 10th May 2014 at the Expo Center Lahore in which representatives from Industry, Academia, Engineering bodies such as IEEE-Pakistan, Pakistan Engineering Congress, PEC and The Engineers Pakistan participated from all across the country to promote and encourage engineering advancements and technological trends in Pakistan. It is worth noting that MTI is the only technology company that has the privilege to receive the award owing to its development of comprehensive Smart Metering Product Portfolio and successful execution & implementation of various Smart Metering Projects in Pakistan. The Chief Guest of the ceremony was Honorable Prof. Engr. Ahsan Iqbal, a Member of the National Assembly and Federal Minister of Planning Developments & Reforms. While presenting the Award to Mr. Nauman Saeed, President & CEO MicroTech Industries, the Secretary IEP Engr. Amir Zamir expressed his admiration for the remarkable contributions MTI has been making in the technological landscape especially Smart Energy Metering Sector of Pakistan. Receiving an excellence award is a proud moment for MicroTech as it acknowledges the relentless and untiring efforts the company has made in order to offer unique, innovative and customized technological solutions in various sectors for local and international market. Over the past few years MicroTech has expanded its product portfolio offering various hi-tech solutions in AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) including Smart Prepayment Solution, Demand Side Load Management, Industrial Load Monitoring Solution and so forth that are capable to mitigate the energy crises in Pakistan. Moreover, MTI's commitment to deliver high standard metering solutions is reflected by the recent major milestone it has achieved by implementing the first-of-its-kind large-scale smart metering project "Load Data Improvement Project (LDIP)" awarded by PITC and funded by USAID-PDP in all the ten Distribution Companies (DISCOs) of Pakistan. This project has been an immense success as it has not only enabled the energy utilities to eliminate the unplanned load shedding but also paved the way for future mass roll-out of Smart Metering Solutions in Pakistan. Moreover, at the utility end the solution provides real-time information of load data of all grids and visibility of individual feeder load shedding to ensure the compliance with planned load shedding targets, allows optimal forecasting and planning of generation etc., while at the consumer-end it enables better planning of day-to-day activities without any unannounced black-out.
