Capgemini signs €500 million with Ontario utility
Capgemini Canada, a subsidiary of Capgemini, has signed a $650 million CDN (€500 million) contract extension to 2015 with Hydro One Networks Inc., the province of Ontario’s transmission and distribution electric utility.
Capgemini will provide Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), Information Technology Outsourcing (ITO) and Core Systems Support services to Hydro One in order to support their evolving business needs.
The original contract between Hydro One and Capgemini was effective December 2001, and this current contract extension calls for Capgemini to continue to provide services in support of Hydro One’s business transformation and investment program.
“We’ve been collaborating with Hydro One on various technology initiatives for nearly 10 years, and we’re delighted to extend this strategic relationship with them,” said Ian Roy, vice president, Energy, Utilities and Chemicals, Capgemini. “By leveraging our global capabilities in the utilities industry, we’ve been able to transform our solution to meet the needs of the Hydro One business that result in efficient processes that support sustainable business performance and allow them to continue to deliver optimal services to their customers throughout Ontario.”
