Every Bruneian household will soon be able to monitor and manage their electricity and water usage with the Unified Smart Metering System (USMS).
Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and Minister of Finance and Economy II Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Haji Mohd Amin Liew bin Abdullah as the guest of honour officiated the launch of the utility system at Indera Kayangan Ballroom, The Empire Brunei yesterday.
Minister of Development Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Suhaimi bin Haji Gafar and Minister of Transport and Infocommunications Dato Seri Setia Awang Abdul Mutalib bin Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Setia Dato Paduka Haji Mohammad Yusof also participated.
USMS is a joint initiative which began in 2017 between DST Network, Department of Electrical Services (DES), Public Works Department (JKR) and the Berakas Power Company. The project is another important milestone for the nation to leverage on the global digital transformation.
“With the Unified Smart Metering Solution, DST brings digital revolution to the utility system, providing up to date near real time billing and an enhanced customer service portal,” General Manager of DST Network Juliana Sim said.
