Citelum reinforces its positions in Mexico City

Citelum won a new request for proposal in Mexico City for the renovation and maintenance of its street lighting.

With a duration of 6 years and built on a “public-private partnership” (PPP) financing solution, this contract includes a new section of street lighting in Mexico City historic center, its principal thoroughfares and the Chapultepec Forest, as well as the artistic lighting of streets and monuments like the National Palace.

In total, over 43,000 lighting points will be renovated, including 12,500 with LED technology. They will be mapped via the MUSE® urban management platform which the city will use to monitor their functioning and rapidly schedule preventive and curative maintenance interventions.

A quality of service already experienced

Since 2010, Citelum has already renovated 32,000 lighting points in Mexico City and produced various artistic lightings.

Thanks to this first 10-year PPP, the city has saved 44% of energy in the renovated section and failure rate has dropped from 59% to 0.9%.

The new modernization works and the implementation of connected services like MUSE® will enable the Mexican capital to generate new energy savings, improve its inhabitants’ safety feeling and reinforce its attractiveness.
