The Municipality of Utrecht is responsible for the operation and annual management and maintenance of more than 60,000 light points in the public space. The public lighting, OVL for short, is fed and switched from 621 OVL switch boxes spread throughout the municipality. The current OVL control system was in need of replacement. The municipality put the contract out to European tender and it was won by ICT Group.

To implement the replacement process, the municipality has chosen a variant in which the core of the OVL control system is replaced with a newly designed core, rather than rebuilding the entire system. This core is based on the reliable solution of the pumping station control system, which controls the pumping stations in the municipality. This system was co-developed and realized by ICT Group.

Further development

ICT Group realized the initial implementation of the software of the central and local OVL control system over a period of two years and is responsible for the management, maintenance and further development of the system.

Martijn Schram, Business Unit Manager at ICT Group: "We are very pleased with the result of yet another successful delivery at the Municipality of Utrecht. This gives confidence for a long-term cooperation and offers expansion possibilities for monitoring other asset groups."
