Technology in care sector increasingly important, 22 million euro of new orders in the Netherlands


Gouda - Imtech N.V. (technical services provider in Europe) announces that it has received new orders from the Dutch care sector valued at more than 22 million euro. These orders confirm the fact that technology is becoming increasingly important within the care process. In this context, Imtech and third parties have devised a new industrial technology concept called ‘plug-in systems’.

René van der Bruggen, CEO Imtech: ‘Technology is becoming increasingly important in the care sector. As a result of population ageing, the care sector is facing the immense challenge of having to work more and more efficiently and cheaply. Operating costs have to be reduced, manageability must be improved, and maintenance must be more professional. Moreover, the importance of ICT is increasing fast. Integration of all the technological solutions (the combination of electrical engineering, ICT and mechanical engineering) is Imtech’s answer to the cost and management problems in the care sector. The demand for technical quality is also growing, as the care sector is increasingly asking for specific technology that can meet the strictest hygiene and safety standards. As an expert partner in technology, Imtech is able to respond well to these needs.’

Wide range of orders in the Dutch care sector
Imtech is technically one of the strongest players in the Dutch care sector, with activities spread throughout the country. This has recently resulted in a wide range of orders. For instance, Imtech is involved as the technology partner in the multi-disciplinary upgrading of the Diagnostic Department of the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam. It is also providing the technological renovation of operating theatres at the AMC (Academic Medical Centre) in Amsterdam, the Atrium Hospital in Heerlen, and the Reinier de Graaf Hospital in Delft. In these cases in particular, specific technological elements come together which, combined with the highest requirements regarding hygiene and safety, demand a high quality multi-disciplinary approach. Specific technological renovations are also to be carried out at the Bronovo Hospital in The Hague and the Emma Children’s Hospital in Amsterdam (location AMC), as well as the upgrading and renovation of the entire technology of the Sancta Maria old age home in Zevenbergen. Imtech has already announced that it is providing a high-tech power station for the AMC in Amsterdam, where a substantial increase in energy efficiency will result in a significant reduction of operating costs.

‘Plug-in systems’: fast, flexible and safe
Health care is a continuous process requiring optimum planning and safety. Together with third parties, Imtech has therefore devised a new technological concept for implementing (electrical) technical solutions faster, more flexibly and more safely. The new concept called ‘plug-in systems’ is based on prefabricated (industrial) plug-in systems from distribution points and cable ducts up to and including wall plugs and switches, in such a way that power groups (for instance during renovation) are not temporarily deprived of power. Compared to the conventional way of working, the great advantage is that the work can be carried out more quickly, and with higher quality and fewer interruptions of the primary care process, which improves the continuity of the care process. This new technology concept is being launched today.
