SIT selected by Italgas to design the smart meters of the future

September 7th, 2022

Padua, September 7, 2022 – MeteRSit, a SIT Group company, will design Italgas Reti’s next-generation smart meters.
MeteRSit will develop the product from thermo-mass technology, in which it is a world leader, allowing accurate measurement in any conditions, without the need for external conversion devices, as is now the case with other technologies. Accuracy is guaranteed in fact for a variety of uses: natural gas, biomethane and hydrogen, both pure and “blended” with natural gas blends.
In addition to its design, a field test phase of at least 12 months is planned with the installation of 10 thousand meters across Italy. The overall duration of the project and testing will be approx. 24 months.
“We are pleased to announce this agreement, which for SIT recognises the work and investments made over recent years. In fact, the Group has invested more than Euro 11 million, half of it in R&D alone, leveraging technology and precision as key success factors” stated SIT Chairperson and CEO Federico de’ Stefani. “This is particularly good news for our country and for all end consumers. In fact, this new generation of meters will contribute to a more conscious management of energy consumption and facilitate a transition to the use of pure hydrogen or gas blends.”
MeteRSit is the first company in Italy to focus on thermo-mass meters and has thus far installed more than 6.5 million worldwide. MeteRSit combines high-precision metrological, information, electronic, communication and mechanical technologies in its meters.

CO2, SIT obtains certification on the Carbon Footprint

June 1st, 2022

Padua, 01 June 2022 – SIT continues its ESG path and adds another fundamental element to its sustainability roadmap, namely the certification of the Product Carbon Footprint management system (CFP Systematic Approach).

Bureau Veritas Italia, a world leader in inspection, compliance verification, and certification services, has certified SIT’s systematic approach to analyzing the life cycle of products, in a “cradle-to-gate” logic in line with the standards required by ISO 14067: 2018. The systematic approach makes it possible to calculate the emission values related to the individual products offered, but also to carry out scenario simulations on the products under development in order to adopt the optimal technical, production, and logistic solutions from a CFP perspective.

The process is therefore an officially recognized tool available to the company for achieving the emission reduction targets.

Chiara de’ Stefani, Corporate Sustainability Director of SIT, comments that “The management of CO2 emissions plays a central role in our sustainability strategy”. “The adoption of the CFP Systematic Approach measurement standard for the certification of our results, in addition to certifying our progress in a qualified and independent way, provides us with a management tool, a real operational tool to assess the carbon impact of our decisions. A know-how that has become a corporate asset, in which we will continue to invest “.

As an initial field of application, SIT has chosen to focus on three product lines of the Heating division: mechanical controls, fans, and electronic controls.
The certificate is valid until 2025 and includes the Italian plants of Rovigo, Montecassiano, and Padua; abroad, the factories included in the certification are in Romania, China, Mexico, and the Netherlands.
