Imtech: 22 million orders for intelligent networks for optimum energy efficiency

(PresseBox) (Gouda, ) Over the past period, Imtech N.V. (technical services provider in Europe) has observed a clear increase in the demand for intelligent networks for smart buildings and smart grids. Intelligent networks form the foundation for optimum energy efficiency. Imtech recently gained orders with a total value of over 22 million euro.

Imtech CEO René van der Bruggen: 'The European energy sector forms an important driver for Imtech's further growth. Imtech is one of the strongest technical players in this market and operates as an innovative energy implementation partner in a large number of European countries. We offer added value to our clients by integrating energy solutions in Imtech's total technical approach. The focus lies on energy savings, sustainable generation of energy, increasing energy efficiency, power plants, energy contracting and hightech decentralised energy facilities. Intelligent networks form the foundation for optimum energy efficiency, as they serve as the basic infrastructure for communication between energy suppliers and clients. Imtech is building up a strong position in this market segment as well.'

Demand for intelligent networks increases

Intelligent networks form the basic infrastructure for smart buildings and smart grids. Imtech ICT has the IT knowledge relating to these networks inhouse. After all, information and communications technology enable the broad implementation of intelligent networks. This not only leads to optimum energy efficiency within buildings and electricity grids; it also allows for additional implementation options. Recent Dutch orders for intelligent networks were placed by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the energy company Eneco, the Jeroen Bosch Hospital in Den Bosch, ASR Netherlands and the Municipality of Amersfoort.

Multiple services on offer

Besides placing orders for the implementation of intelligent networks, clients are increasingly asking Imtech to also maintain and manage these networks. From its Imtech ICT 24x7 Network Operating Centre (NOC) with builtin redundancy, Imtech offers various services in the area of networking, unified communications and IT security. These services are provided both in the shape of managed services (Imtech takes over these services from the client) and cloudbased services (Imtech remotely virtualises components of the network, so that clients no longer need to make investments in hardware and software).

Partnership with global market leaders

In the realisation, maintenance and management of these intelligent networks, Imtech works together with global market leaders like Cisco Systems and HP Networking. Imtech has been awarded the highest attainable partner status by these parties. This guarantees that clients are served on the basis of highquality technical expertise and relevant experience. Imtech excels in this partnership. For example, Imtech was recently presented the 'Green Partner of the Year' award by Cisco Systems.
