Servo nets national CCTV contract with power producer

A Leeds-headquartered multi-service provider has signed a five-year framework contract with an independent power producer to install and upgrade CCTV and access control at all its sites nationwide.

Servo Group has won the tender with Conrad Energy to manage the installs and upgrades of CCTV and access control, and to take over the maintenance and monitoring of sites around the UK.

The new contract includes Conrad Energy’s flexible generation, battery energy storage and solar locations, along with its grid stabilisation projects.

Servo has recently completed the install on the energy firms’ northern office in Barnsley and is rolling out installs and retrofit work across the other 70 sites across the UK.

The multi-service provider is also designing and installing a CCTV system to protect Conrad Energy’s 120-acre solar farm in Herefordshire.

Duane Longthorn, head of procurement at Conrad Energy, said: “We are pleased to conclude the framework with Servo Group following a rigorous tender process.

“Over time, Servo will provide all our CCTV, access and alarms systems across our sites delivering a consistent approach, AI systems and protocols to interface with our new Operational support centre.

“This will further enhance our constant drive for digital excellence and enhance our security and health and safety across our sites. I look forward to working with them and delivering on our plans”

Servo, which specialises in security services, including static guarding, CCTV, rail labour, and cleaning, currently employs more than 1,500 operatives around the UK.

It has opened three new offices and doubled its turnover in the past 12 months. Along with Conrad Energy, it services some major contracts across the rail, energy, retail and construction sectors.

Jordan Routledge, systems manager at Servo said: “This contract is fantastic news for our fast-growing CCTV division and we’re happy to be able to harness some of the latest AI-based technology at Conrad Energy’s sites to enhance their systems and access control.

“Their high-profile and fast growth makes them an amazing addition to our client list and we’re looking forward to developing our partnership over the next few years.”
