WCN Editorial Team 30 Jun 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Vinci Energies in a joint venture with Sogetrel has secured a €124M contract to design and build a high-speed network in France.

The scope of the contract will include the provision of new broadband connections to two-thirds of Moselle’s municipalities, through the laying of almost 6,000km of optical fibre, connecting at least 140,000 homes.

The broadband network will be constructed for Moselle Fibre — a joint association featuring the Moselle department council and 19 municipality clusters.

According to the company, the optical fibre network will complement the private-sector infrastructure and enable subscribers to connect to an FTTH — fibre to the home — electronic communications network by 2021.

Work on the project will commence in September 2016, with the creation of 200 construction jobs, and will be completed in four years.
