Paris, 18 June - SPIE Ile-de-France Nord-Ouest has signed a public-private partnership with Maurepas town council to modernise its street lighting and traffic light systems.
Getting lighting just right
Pursuing its policy to promote sustainable development, Maurepas town council has penned a 15-year partnership agreement with SPIE Ile-de-France Nord-Ouest for construction and renovation work along with financing arrangements, and energy management and maintenance services with guaranteed performance level for its public lighting and traffic light installations.
This agreement will optimise the town’s investment in order to renovate and upgrade some or all of the street lighting installations along main roads, access roads and residential streets as well as improving high-voltage power supply installations. Over the course of time, 90% of the town’s lighting network will be renovated.
By carefully gauging and optimising lighting according to the needs of its various districts, Maurepas town council will reduce its electric power bill by about 30%, offsetting rising energy costs. SPIE will also guarantee that no more than 0.2% of lighting units will be out of order at any one time and that repair times will not exceed one hour.
Visually enhancing the town
Maurepas will also be made more attractive by lighting up the two main roundabouts at the entrance to the town, its covered market and the front of its Notre-Dame church with low-energy lighting equipment. The street lighting and traffic light maintenance and operation services will also cover outside lighting for sports complexes and marketplace power posts. “Here again, what was required was efficiency in terms of responsiveness and resulting cost reductions,” says Daniel Labanowski, Sales Director at SPIE Ile-de-France Nord-Ouest. “All these installations will be equipped with innovative monitoring and control devices.”
Strengthening SPIE’s position locally
This partnership provides SPIE Ile-de-France Nord-Ouest with the opportunity to strengthen its position in the Maurepas area.
Teams mobilised to carry out this work will be reinforced with personnel to be recruited locally provided that they have the required skill levels. Our readiness to make a real contribution to the local economic and social conditions is also demonstrated by our plan to train apprentices in our company’s trades.
“Looking to the future, optimising and becoming more efficient are among our constant objectives,” explains Georges Mougeot, Mayor of Maurepas. “Over the last 10 years, we have already renovated some of our underground electrical installations, replaced lighting control cabinets and modernised the lighting units on secondary roads. The main aim was to cut power consumption, standardise lighting equipment, define the identity of our districts and increase operating reliability. With this new contract, we are continuing to make progress with the same goals.”
