Water sector: LOCKEN’s experience in Champagne
For over 8 years, the LOCKEN solution has been installed in the conurbation of Châlons-en-Champagne, which comprises 8 towns and villages. The installation of the LOCKEN solution is an important step in the overall security initiative undertaken by the conurbation as of 2010, the year in which it obtained ISO 14001 certification for its drinking water production system (pumping station and immediate protection zones, whether nearby or more distant).

This initiative was intended to prevent all the risks to which the sites are exposed: break-ins, vandalism, pollution, etc.

In 2013, the water board decided to modernise access to its drinking water production and storage installations and enhance site security. That is why it replaced its traditional mechanical “key-based locking” system with the LOCKEN electronic access control solution for its remote pumping stations and reservoirs scattered throughout the region.

The close, long-standing cooperation between the water board and LOCKEN’s teams led the board to upgrade the system. A few months ago, wishing to benefit from the latest innovations it opted for the most recent key generation. Based on the use of induction technology, this key possesses properties that are particularly highly valued in the water sector: instantaneous opening coupled with high resistance to wear, oxidation and dust.

LOCKEN has numerous customers in the European water sector, including VEOLIA and a number of large city authorities with whom we work to establish long-term partnerships. With tens of thousands of access points fitted with our technology, we possess in-depth expertise with regard to this critical infrastructure and are able to adapt equally well to the constraints of large-scale operators and those of the smallest operators.
