London Borough awards €5.2 million LED lighting contract to VolkerHighways

VolkerHighways has been awarded a €5.2 million contract with London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. The programme includes the replacement of 15,890 street lights with new LED lanterns.

Urban Control

The upgrade process will include 2,500 column replacements, inclusive of ICP transfers. The contract will also see the first full UK borough wide installation of the Urban Control central management system (CMS). Urban Control aims to help organisations harness the power of SMART-city technology, by equipping them with the knowledge and tools to build energy and money-saving solutions, based around their communities’ needs. London Borough of Barking and Dagenham’s CMS will offer them the ability to monitor and control lanterns remotely, resulting in energy, carbon and monetary savings.

LED lanterns

As the current provider for London Borough of Barking and Dagenham’s street lighting term maintenance contract, VolkerHighways has already installed 1,000 LED lanterns within the area. An additional 18,000 LED lanterns have also been installed in the neighbouring borough of Havering.
