Customer Challenge

 

For us, "this was one of the biggest projects we had ever undertaken," says Frans van den Blink, project manager of infra company Heijmans. "I get a good feeling looking back on it, and this certainly has a lot to do with the lighting installation." Heijmans, which was part of the consortium set up for the A4ALL project, which also included Boskalis and VolkerWessels, chose Philips as theirlighting partner.

The right lighting

 

We chose Philips as lighting partner. “The most important reason was their know-how in the field of lighting, and their vision for tunnel technology,” he explains.

 

“What’s more, we didn’t want any surprises. With such a complex project, something is always bound to go wrong. After all, there’s no accounting for human error. But that’s exactly when you need things to be sorted out swiftly and properly. And we have had that experience with Philips for many years now: you know everything will work out fine. And it was the same with this project.”

Philips Lifecycle services

 

We have signed a Lifecycle Services Essential contract with Philips to give us peace of mind and relieve us from certain maintenance tasks, like preventive maintenance via system health checks or specialist expertise diagnostics and fault finding, spare parts availability over lifetime and 24/7 helpdesk. Even more interesting is that this is the first signed tunnel lifecycle services contract in the Netherlands and this project was used as pioneer.
