Imtech: orders 40 million euro for high-tech infrastructure in the Benelux

(PresseBox) (Gouda, ) Imtech (technical services provider in Europe) has won orders in the Benelux countries worth more than 40 million euros for improving, upgrading and expanding high-tech infrastructure in the energy-provision, public lighting and traffic, airport and rail markets. The technical solutions to be delivered by Imtech are energy-efficient, CO2 friendly and will make a substantial contribution in making the infrastructure more available and as safe as possible.

René van de Bruggen, CEO of Imtech: 'The optimal availability and safety of technical infrastructure is becoming an ever-more important issue in our society. As the burdens placed on infrastructure continue to increase, demands with regard to availability and safety rise as well. In addition, extra demands are being made concerning energy consumption and the reduction of CO2 emissions. Technology is the solution by which these tougher demands can be met. Imtech enjoys a strong position in the Benelux countries and is seeing continued growth in its infra activities.'

Intelligent networks for decentralised energy generation

Operators of electric transport and distribution networks have to deal with a fast-changing world. Whereas electrical energy was previously transported only to consumers, it is now becoming more frequent for users to generate electricity and to supply it back to the network. As a result, the task of operating and managing the network is becoming more and more complex and the burden on the network increases. By supplying high-tech technological solutions to network operators in the Netherlands (Tennet) and Belgium (Elia), Imtech is contributing to reliable and intelligent decentralised energy generation networks.

Public lighting and traffic

The city of Amsterdam is one of the most densely inhabited areas in the Benelux countries. It is not only the high population, but also the large number of offices that is leading to an ever-increasing level of traffic. Properly functioning and energy-efficient public lighting and high-tech traffic facilities help make public spaces and traffic safer. Imtech has extended existing contracts with the city of Amsterdam, and now maintains around two-thirds of the public lighting and traffic infrastructure. Other government bodies in the Netherlands and Belgium have awarded new contracts to Imtech for maintaining and operating technical infrastructure for street lighting and traffic facilities.

Sustainable runway extension at Groningen Airport Eelde

Together with Dura Vermeer, Imtech has won an order for the sustainable extension of the runway at Groningen Airport Eelde. This concerns a DBFM (Design Build Finance and Maintain) contract in which the present runway is to be extended from 1,800 to 2,500 metres, and a new taxiway and platform are constructed. The project is one of the most sustainable runway extension projects ever, with a minimal impact on the environment, optimal consumption of energy and materials, minimal CO2 emissions, and low levels of disturbance for the surrounding area. Imtech is responsible for the technological part of the contract, including runway lighting, meteorological and navigational modifications and the related energy and communication facilities. After completion, Dura Vermeer and Imtech will be responsible for ten years for maintenance on the basis of an asset management approach using availability, safety, environmental friendliness and operating cost measuring indicators.

(Light) rail The number of passengers using the railways continues to rise. This is leading to an expansion of the national rail network and of regional railway connections. The frequency and density of trains is also increasing, which requires alterations in the field of safety and energy provision. Imtech is involved, as a technology partner, with several regional (light) rail routes in the Netherlands.
