Actavo, the Denis O’Brien-controlled group that installed meters for State utility Irish Water, has struck a five-year deal with Scottishpower.
Actavo said that it would create 230 jobs in Scotland on the back of the contract.
Keith Anderson, Scottishpower chief corporate officer, said that the deal was part of the company’s plan to provide its customers with smart meters by 2020.
Actavo’s network and in-homes division chief executive TJ Malone said that the deal built on an existing relationship between the Irish company and Scottishpower.
