The Scope of this Project is to undertake the design, prototype development and trial of an alternative ECV exchange kit for use in semi-concealed meter boxes.

The Project stages are:

  • Design and Development

  • Prototype Manufacture and Internal Testing

  • Modifications to Design

  • Field Trials

The Project seeks to prove that the intended solution is able, through trialling, to demonstrate that it is a technically feasible, more efficient and customer friendly alternative to current methods of performing an exchange on a semi-concealed meter box ECV.

Following completion of the development and trial of the prototype product:

  • The GDNs would be in a position to decide with confidence whether the concept is technically capable of performing the desired task

  • The product would be ready to take forward to the internal GDN approval, manufacture and roll-out
