Vodafone awards comprehensive national maintenance contract to Downer EDI

Vodafone New Zealand has awarded a comprehensive national maintenance service contract to Downer EDI.

The agreement, initially for a three-year term, with a two-year right of renewal. Downer EDI will undertake maintenance work and ‘break-fix’ services across Vodafone’s nationwide mobile network.

Downer EDI’s New Zealand CEO, Mr Cos Bruyn, said, "This is a strategically important contract for Downer with a significant global player that has outlined a strong vision for growth and continuous improvement across its business. We are delighted that Downer features strongly as part of Vodafone's future."

Vodafone’s Chief technology Officer, Ken Tunnicliffe, says he’s pleased to sign the contract with Downer EDI.

“Our customers rely on us to provide the best network services we can and Vodafone will work with Downer EDI to ensure that new expansions to the network and ongoing maintenance work keep downtime to a minimum.”

Downer EDI has also recently signed a contract with Vodafone to implement 4,000 GPS modules across its transport and construction plant fleet, with some challenging technology linkages into its billing, mileage and plant asset management systems.

With a national team of over 5,000 people across a range of technical disciplines, Downer EDI has been involved in the construction and maintenance of a significant proportion of New Zealand's telecommunications infrastructure from the Far North to Scott Base, Antarctica.
