Omexom has the skills to deliver a comprehensive project, encompassing all phases – innovation, feasibility, design, build and maintenance.
Reducing the total capital and operational expenditure of distribution networks while improving the safety, the security and the carbon footprint of the network is the key challenge driving Omexom’s offers.


Reducing the total capital and operational expenditure of distribution networks

Distribution System Operators (DSO) are faced with the challenge of changing costs related to the operation and maintenance of their assets. Preventive maintenance programs are evolving towards increasingly predictive models. With custom-made offers, Omexom proposes to its customers a large range of solutions such as:

  • Asset inspection​
  • Dispatch center
  • Live line work
  • Predictive maintenance​

The aims are always oriented towards:

  • Extend the life of their assets
  • Reduce or avoid outage time
  • Optimise resources

Improving Safety & Security

Networks can be seriously damaged during major climatic events or other external incidents (e.g. road accidents). To ensure continuity of service, managers must secure, repair and return infrastructure to service as quickly as possible.

Answer to major incidents

Omexom response teams’ are available to deal with major incidents

  • Response monitoring indicators and incident response time​
  • Equipment and materials optimised for different types of incidents​
  • Training and monitoring of teams with an in-house training centre​

Accompany DSOs

The permanent search for synergies and an ever-growing business network afford Omexom the tried and tested expertise to accompany DSOs in the expansion, upgrade and maintenance of their distribution networks, from regulator stations all the way to the meter. Omexom proposes to retailer the following services:

  • Meter exchange and installations (AMR/ERT)​
  • Meter reading services​
  • Customer service disconnects & turn-on​
  • Call center: scheduling appointments & dispatch

Reducing carbon footprint

The development of embedded or decentralised generation (wind, solar, etc.) and new uses (auto-generation, electromobility, etc.) is changing the role of distribution networks, which now collect the energy produced by the smallest generating facilities. With the growing need for renewable energies, the number of generation facilities and the demand for connection has increased considerably in recent years. Omexom proposes to its clients a holistic approach to integrate the new sources of energy:

  • Studies and connection works for renewable energy projects (wind, solar,…)​
  • Realisation of civil engineering works: ​
    • roads, fences, gates, ​
    • foundations (soil reinforcement)​
  • Installation and connection of delivery stations​
  • Georeferenced surveys​
