Office of Public Works (OPW) have extended Blackbourne’s existing Framework Agreement for the Supply and Installation of Energy Metering Equipment in various sites until November 2018.

The initial Framework was awarded in November 2014 and was to run for 3 years.

The Framework is in line with OPW’s energy conservation campaign which is called “Optimising Power at Work”. The campaign aims to change behaviour towards energy use and ultimately eliminate energy wastage within publicly ran buildings.

Projects awarded under the framework incorporate; conducting detailed technical surveys of selected sites; provision of reports; supply, install and commission of Energy Metering and monitoring equipment.

Blackbourne have been awarded a number of projects under the framework including: extending the energy metering system at Letterkenny General Hospital and Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda.

Mervyn Stewart, Contracts Manager at Blackbourne Energy Solutions, said, “We are very proud to be involved with OPW, helping them to achieve their objectives of reducing energy wastage that will result in reduced costs and carbon emissions. We look forward to further success under the Framework Agreement.”
