ENGIE wins major contract with Transport for London
The contract will see ENGIE provide planned and reactive maintenance for mechanical and electrical systems, fire detection and suppression systems across the London Underground network. Maintenance of fire safety systems will also be provided for TfL’s other offices and facilities.
In London, ENGIE has been awarded a major 5-year contract with TfL (Transport for London) to deliver a range of maintenance services across over 500 locations.
Service delivery by around 330 ENGIE employees will be supported by a 24/7 helpdesk, computer aided facilities management (CAFM) software and hand-held technology for operatives. The contract will also provide TfL with access to ENGIE’s energy management capabilities. The ability to self deliver the required services will be a key element in ENGIE delivering a successful contract. In helping TfL to improve performance and efficiency of London’s transport systems, ENGIE is helping to ease the use of public transport in a major city - a greener solution for mobility.
