Amey, Ferrovial Services’ UK subsidiary, has been awarded two public lighting contracts for the towns of Edinburgh and Inverclyde, in Scotland. In the first of these the company will install LED street lights while in the second the contract is for maintenance of existing street lighting and luminous traffic signals.
The British affiliate will bring the Edinburgh street lighting system up to date by introducing the latest in LED technology. Completion of the contract will entail the replacement of 54,000 street lamps over a period of three years and will signify savings in energy costs of some €55 million for the local council over the next two decades. The street lighting system renewal will help the city reducing CO2 emissions, in compliance with SEEP (Scotland’s Energy Efficiency Programme).
In addition to installing the most up-to-date LED technology, the new contract includes a dynamic street lighting control system that will allow for centralised, more efficient management.
Maintenance of street lamps and signage in Inverclyde
Amey will carry out maintenance on more than 13,000 street lamps, 1000 luminous traffic signals and 600 auxiliary electrical elements stationed throughout the streets of Inverclyde, in Scotland. The contract illustrates the renewed confidence that the municipal corporation has placed in the British affiliate of Ferrovial Services. In 2014, Amey overhauled the public lighting system using LED technology and has been responsible for the maintenance of the same since then.
These contracts are the latest to be added to the list of replacement and maintenance contracts for public lighting systems that Amey has previously implemented in other locations throughout Britain. In November 2017 the company was awarded the tender for the installation of 56,000 LED street lamps in Manchester over a three year period. Amey is the first British company to implement LED infrastructures on a large scale, with more than 200,000 LED-technology street lamps already installed throughout Great Britain.
