Eircom awards €22m energy deal to ESB
Eircom has awarded ESB Electric Ireland a €22m two-year contract that will see it supply power to the telco's head office and telephone exchanges.
Announcing the deal yesterday, ESB Electric Ireland said it would be providing electricity to 81 major exchanges and other installations. It's also helping Eircom to achieve greater energy efficiency, it said.
"We have structured this new contract in a way which brings the client 'inside' our energy-trading centre and enables them to leverage the expertise and experience we have in managing the gas, carbon and foreign exchange inputs that determine their final energy costs," said Derek Russell, ESB Electric Ireland's industrial and commercial business manager.
Over the next two years, ESB Electric Ireland will aim to help Eircom exploit energy cost-saving and efficiency initiatives through the installation of Energytracked, its energy and environmental management system.
