A multi-million pound deal with BT is set to double turnover for a Stockport-based energy management company.

Adam International has won a contract to supply and install remote energy management systems into BT telephone exchanges across the country, which will double its turnover to £12m.

Adam’s technology will be used by BT to monitor and control services including heating, ventilation, air conditioning and metering equipment via the internet in an effort to cut energy consumption.

Managing director Steve Dillon says the systems, which are also used by Boots, Vodafone, Marks & Spencer and HMV, will help BT save millions of pounds in fuel costs.

He added: “We currently have a record order book. We have approximately 2,000 of our systems with clients at the moment, which have all been installed in the last three years. In the current year we expect to double that.”

The BT project covers premises ranging in size from 400 sq m to 17,000 sq m and will take until the end of next summer to complete.
