Colas Limited, the UK operating company of Colas SA (60,000 employees, Euro 9.5 Billion turnover –‘05) are currently working on their second major contract for Veolia, designing and building a new waste transfer facility at Maresfield in East Sussex.

The 56 week project, once completed, will form a vital link in the East Sussex County Council waste management plan.

Colas used the initial period on site, to conduct trials of i-MO, whilst waiting for BT to site survey and then install ADSL lines.

Based on the success of these trials, we are delighted to announce that Colas have now chosen
i-MO as part of their site set up plans for the future.


Tony Delaney, UK IT Manager, commented :-


“ We were looking for a simple to use, robust method of enabling our on site personnel to get on line. Based on the reliability and performance of the service, and the very active support shown by EMS, we were happy to move ahead with i-MO "


Andrew Lambert, MD of EMS, added:


" The excellent feedback and performance at the trial in Maresfield really demonstrated i-MO at its best. We used data cards from different network providers (both with HSDPA signals) at the same time and by bonding the bandwidth together saw outstanding performance."
