/ August 14, 2018/ News

Omexom has won the streetlight network management contract for the Canberra Region (population 400,000) awarded by the Australian Capital Territory Government. The €37 million, seven-year energy performance contract took effect on 1st May 2018.
  • €37m contract managed by Omexom
  • Seven-year streetlight management contract for the Canberra Region

It covers renovation, operation and maintenance of more than 80,000 streetlights, 50,000 of which will be replaced with LEDs to achieve a target of 47% energy saving. In addition, a smart monitoring system will be installed to track the streetlight network in real time. Under this contract, Omexom in Australia will implement two major innovations in favour of smart city: on the one hand, the CityApp application to support maintenance and operation and, on the other hand, the BIMCity hypervisor to ensure better customer service, network reliability and safety and track performance indicators.

Streetlights currently account for 40% of ACT’s total electricity consumption. The choice of an Energy Performance Contract is part of its commitment to meet the target of a 40% reduction in greenhouse gases from 1990 levels by 2020 and achieve zero net emissions by 2050. In addition, the smart city network and hypervisor established for the contract will support the ACT’s commitment to implement further smart city applications and encourage innovation by third party developers.

This is the first contract in Australia to combine smart LED streetlight installation, smart city network implementation and overall infrastructure management. It is also the first streetlighting project to be carried out under an Energy Performance Contract. Omexom won the contract based on synergies between the comprehensive contract experience provided by the local teams in Australia and the expertise provided by the network of the Omexom brand.

Omexom operates in Australia, in the transport and energy infrastructure services sector, since 2014.
