STRABAG Property and Facility Services GmbH (STRABAG PFS) has won another tender issued by Telefónica Germany: As at 1 January 2019, it will take on the set-up, replacement and repair of air-conditioning equipment at over 450 of the telecom provider’s mobile communications sites. The contract was concluded for at least two years. The parties have agreed to not disclose the volume of the contract.
The service package includes the set-up and replacement of split air-conditioning systems, the installation of air-conditioning and ventilation units, and the repair of faulty equipment. Inspections to calculate the electrical capacity of this air-conditioning technology are also planned at the numerous locations.
“With this order, we have once again significantly expanded our TFM services for Telefónica,” says Dirk Brandt, Managing Director responsible for Technical Facility Management at STRABAG PFS, describing the growth environment.
Telefónica Germany has been an established customer since 2016, when it commissioned STRABAG PFS with TFM services for 1,200 information and telecommunications locations. This first mandate encompasses servicing and maintenance for all technical systems, including special facilities such as safety technology and emergency power systems, as well as ensuring maximum availability for the key connecting nodes. In January 2018, STRABAG PFS also took on the task of on-site management for the core technical sites, thereby significantly expanding its vertical integration. This contract was recently extended for another five years.
