ENGIE awarded contract extension with North East Lincolnshire Council
ENGIE, leading energy, services and regeneration specialist, has cemented its decade-long partnership with North East Lincolnshire Council with a three-year contract extension until 2025.
ENGIE is responsible for delivering a range of regeneration and infrastructure services for the Council across the 191.9 km unitary authority area, which includes the towns of Grimsby, Immingham and Cleethorpes. The Council’s Cabinet has now approved proposals to extend the current 12-year partnership agreement, which began in July 2010, for an additional three years.
The outcome-based contract not only ensures the maintenance of buildings, roads and street lights, but it is also delivering real change by working on a regeneration programme that provides long-term benefits for the local community through attracting inward investment and job creation. ENGIE guarantees savings for the municipality and is contracted to achieve these outcomes.
Nicola Lovett, CEO for ENGIE UK & Ireland, said: “Over the last ten years, we have built a solid and successful relationship with North East Lincolnshire Council and we are pleased to be offered an opportunity to build on this for an additional three years. These strategic partnerships allow ENGIE as a business to immerse itself in the local community, optimise resources, deliver sustainable services and utilise our wide-ranging capabilities in energy, services and regeneration – while supporting the council to meet its net zero carbon ambitions.
“The regular reviews we undertake with the council have offered a strong platform to tailor our services over the years and ensure we adapt accordingly to all social, economic and environmental issues. We are particularly proud of the collaborative approach between ENGIE, the council and the local community in the wake of Covid-19 and look forward to helping the region to continue thriving throughout and after this pandemic.”
Cllr Philip Jackson, Leader of North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “This extension will give our two organisations the certainty they need for the next few years as we look towards greater working with Lincolnshire and understanding what that might mean, working within the local government budget framework, and assessing the progress of the partnership for the future.”
