Horizon Power awards expanded managed services contract

Western Australian state-owned commercial entity Horizon Power has awarded IT service management company Empired a new managed services contract worth up to $15 million to support its operations.

Horizon Power provides power to around 100,000 residents and 10,000 businesses across regional and remote Western Australia.

The new agreement will see Empired provide a range of digital managed services to support Horizon Power’s network, cloud, security, infrastructure and core business applications. The contract has a three-year term with two optional one-year extensions, and has estimated base services revenue of $3 million per year.

Empired is already providing infrastructure services to Horizon Power under a separate contract that is due to expire shortly. The new expanded contract will commence at the start of next month.

Empired managing director and CEO Russell Baskerville welcomed the new agreement. “Empired has worked closely with Horizon Power for many years and is delighted that, through a competitive tender process, it has decided to expand its relationship with Empired for many years to come,” he said.

“The energy market is changing rapidly, and we look forward to playing a pivotal role in Horizon Power’s digital transformation as it seeks to embrace new technologies to meet the changing needs of its clients.”
