Energy service company Dalkia UK has won a six month rolling commitment with Atkins Global to fortify the safety and efficiency of Heathrow’s Main Road Tunnel.
The subsidiary of the EDF Group says it builds on its legacy of successful projects at the airport including the successful delivery of the T3IB baggage facility at Terminal 3, where Dalkia UK led the design and build phase for the £16m MEPH project.
Under the new contract, Dalkia UK will be responsible for delivering the management of preventative maintenance, aiding Atkins Global in the finalisation of electrical installations, certifications, and assigning a Heathrow ESR3 authorised person for the isolation of redundant services in the main tunnel. Dalkia will undertake the completion and verification of all existing and new electrical services, in line with NICEIC certification standards.
It says the main road tunnel stands as the principal conduit into the Heathrow Airport Facility for countless passengers daily. As such, its smooth operation is essential to the efficiency of Heathrow Airport.
Andy Stubbington, Project Manager at Atkins Global, shared, “Dalkia UK’s proficiency and proven experience in handling projects of such magnitude gives us confidence. Their technical expertise will undoubtedly ensure the Main Road Tunnel’s maintenance and operations meet the highest standards, ensuring a seamless experience for Heathrow’s passengers.”
Paul Killeen, Contracts Manager of Dalkia UK, remarked, “Our relationship with Atkins Global is a testament to our shared values and commitment to excellence. We’re thrilled with the opportunity to apply our long-standing expertise in this key venture.”
