The Cergy-Pontoise conurbation community is entrusting the renovation, protection, and overall management of its public lighting as well as the enhancement, by light, of part of its heritage in Cinergy SAS, which comprises principally Citéos (VINCI Energies) and SPIE Ile-de-France Nord-Ouest. The tender procedure for this contract, with a total value of 187 million euros, lasted almost 2 years. The contract has been agreed for a period of 18 years, with the aim of rapidly guaranteeing an efficient public service and optimising public expenditure by renovating almost all the community’s public lighting facilities.
Citéos and SPIE have undertaken to reconstruct almost 80% of the public lighting facilities over the first five years of the contract. The first phase will involve an investment of 81 million euros, with over 1,400 reconstruction projects being planned and 15 sites or outstanding buildings being lit. 39 million euros will then be committed over the next 13 years, with more than 380 reconstruction projects being planned and plans to use lights to enhance 19 sites or outstanding buildings. Cinergy is to ensure a failure rate of less than 2% within two years and less than 0.5% after the fifth year.
In addition, the implementation of efficient smart equipment by Citéos and SPIE, with in particular the deployment of 7,000 LED luminaries on the residential roads and pedestrian routes, the gradation of the light flux based on the time of night, the installation of presence detection systems over 500 light points located on pedestrian paths, will lead to a reduction in energy consumption of more than 40% over 10 years.
Finally, Cinergy has undertaken to promote consultation and cooperation when carrying out projects. Local partners and residents will be involved at every stage, in particular for initiatives aimed at reducing pollution caused by the sites. 20% of the global amount of the contract will be entrusted to artisans and SMEs, like Entra, a company specialising in public lighting located in the Cergy Pontoise conurbation community. This involvement of local specialists is aimed at optimising the organisation and performance of the sites.
This new service for the inhabitants of Cergy-Pontoise is named Cylumine. Information will be available on the CACP site in the near future.
