Abloy UK has been awarded a three-year contract with Thames Water, valued at an estimated £750k, to upgrade existing locking systems between now and June 2024.
Thames Water is the UK’s largest water and waste water company, serving 15 million customers across London and the Thames Valley.
Products specified for the project include padlocks and a range of cylinders, which will be used to secure a variety of areas and assets.
These include treatment plants and pumping stations on applications such as hatches, doors and gates. They’ll be used at over 22 sites in North and East London including Coppermills and Abbey Mills.
Abloy cylinders combine flexibility with security, to provide unbeatable performance and meet the BS EN 1303 standard for Cylinder Locks.
Abloy padlocks use a unique rotating disc principle and are renowned for their endurance and maximum resistance against physical attack, offering durability in even the severest of climatic conditions.
There is also the future potential to implement PROTEC2 CLIQ® access control system and BEAT keyless solution that combines a digital key, mobile application and a heavy-duty, Bluetooth padlock, all managed with the visual Abloy OS user interface.
Simon Jeff, Market Developer for Critical Infrastructure at Abloy UK, said: “We are delighted to have secured a contract of this size with such a prominent and well respected company such as Thames Water, and look forward to successfully implementing the new locking systems over the next three years.”
