Energy and services group ENGIE has been awarded a five-year global frame contract to deliver integrated facilities management, production maintenance and project services to the global leader in rail technology Bombardier Transportation.
The contract, valued at approximately 250 million euro, foresees that all facilities management, building maintenance and production maintenance as well as cleaning, security, catering, reception, helpdesk and grounds maintenance services for various Bombardier Transportation facilities will be managed by ENGIE. It will also deliver capital expenditure projects and energy performance solutions across Bombardier Transportation’s industrial facilities.
The services are to be delivered to a mixed portfolio of existing and new building types, including manufacturing environments. Implementation will take place in phases, starting in July 2018. The contract will be managed centrally by ENGIE’s International FM (EIFM) team, with local delivery through ENGIE’s national services entities. Service delivery will start immediately after the successful execution of the local service agreements.
ENGIE will also utilise its ENGIE Direct® smart workplace technology to support service delivery and provide clear, up-to-date management information for both ENGIE and Bombardier Transportation.
