Abloy wins £2.5m contract with UK Power Networks

  • 15 Nov 2021

Abloy UK has been awarded a 5-year contract with UK Power Networks, valued at £2.5m, to upgrade the current mechanical locking systems to a combined electromechanical and mechanical locking solution, for its high and low voltage distribution networks.

UK Power Networks own and maintain the electricity distribution network across South East England, the East of England and London. 

Products specified include a mix of Abloy PROTEC2 CLIQ® electromechanical and PROTEC2 mechanical padlocks and cylinders. These will be controlled and administered using the new CIPE Manager operating system.

Abloy

It is estimated Abloy will supply around 9,500 padlocks per annum, together with programmable PROTEC2 CLIQ Bluetooth Low Energy keys, enabling UK Power Networks’ system to be expanded conveniently in the future.

CLIQ® offers high security and flexibility that supports the complex workflow of organisations in the energy sector by enabling audit trails to be generated for individual cylinders, padlocks, keys and system users.

If a key is lost or stolen this no longer creates a major security risk, because each individual key can be deactivated if required and have access rights changed or removed using the CLIQ® web manager software, providing a truly dynamic secure system.

The battery powered CLIQ® keys are programmable, so a temporary contractor can be issued with a key that permits entry to specific sites for a limited time period. After the authorisation period ends, the key cannot open the lock.
