Imtech : Imtech: partner in Greater London Authority's RE:FIT framework, 47 million euro technology orders in London

 Imtech : Imtech: partner in Greater London Authority's RE:FIT framework, 47
                   million euro technology orders in London

Gouda - Royal Imtech N.V. (IM-AE, technical services provider in and outside
Europe) announces that it is selected as one of the technology partners on the
Greater London Authority's (GLA) multi-million RE:FIT framework. RE:FIT is the
Mayor of London's award-winning programme, which provides a commercial model
for public bodies wishing to implement energy efficiency improvements to their
buildings or estate, which can include local energy generation measures. At
the same time, Imtech has recently received technology orders in London with a
total value of over 47 million euro.

René van der Bruggen, CEO Imtech: 'As one of the UK key players in the
technical and energy services marketplace, we're delighted to have been
selected for the Mayor of London's RE:FIT programme. By assisting the public
sector in reducing energy demand and consumption and decarbonising their
energy supply through implementation of innovative energy efficiency measures,
we are enabling existing buildings to perform better, both commercially and
environmentally. This aligns with the Imtech growth strategy offering
considerable added value, with integration of numerous sustainable solutions
and energy efficiency measures. This RE:FIT partnership and the new orders in
London prove that we are well on the way in implementing our added value
growth strategy.'

RE:FIT framework: energy retrofitting over 400 public sector buildings
The award-winning RE:FIT programme is a key manifesto commitment by the Mayor
of London, Boris Johnson, and the cornerstone of helping London's public
sector buildings achieve better performance through retrofitting a range of
energy and water conservation measures. The RE:FIT framework scheme uses
selected energy service companies, such as Imtech, to identify and implement
energy conservation measures, enabling organisations to reduce energy
consumption, carbon emissions and ultimately running costs. The framework is
for a 48-month period where Imtech will guarantee a set level of savings over
the payback period of the energy conservation measures implemented on the
RE:FIT projects that will be awarded. The current RE:FIT pipeline of work for
November 2012 onwards includes energy retrofitting over 400 public sector
buildings, where Imtech and other companies will have the opportunity to
deliver innovative energy conservation measures to achieve an estimated CO2
reduction of 35,000 tonnes per annum. Due to interest from a range of
organisations outside of London, the RE:FIT framework is also accessible to
public sector organisations across the UK and is a key component within the
Energy Efficiency Strategy recently released from the UK Government's
Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).

London: 'the place to be', new orders
For Imtech, London is and will remain 'the place to be' with substantial
investment volume in spite of strong competition and price pressure. Imtech's
added value strategy provides a good response to this and leads to
distinctiveness that is recognised by the market. Imtech demonstrates
autonomous growth in markets such as technical maintenance, water,
waste-to-energy, buildings, infrastructure (airports, power, and rail) and
industry. Various medium-sized projects with a total value of over 47 million
euro have been won recently. An example is the technological renovation of the
Eaton Court Building, for which an innovative BIM (Building Information
Management) approach was developed. Other examples include advanced air
handling in the office building at 79-97 Wigmore Street and technical
revitalisation at the exclusive John Lewis store which was implemented while
operations continued. In the top segment of exclusive apartment complexes,
Imtech is involved in the prestigious '375 Kensington High Street' and '61-75
Alie Street' projects. In the airport market, innovative solutions are being
delivered at Gatwick Airport to reduce water pollution and upgrade the
technical infrastructure on and around the runways. An innovative framework
contract has also been agreed with the Ministry of Justice. This has led to
new orders. All Imtech solutions are characterised by considerable energy
efficiency measurements.
