Lagos invests 5 million euros in its Business Areas

To carry out the project, a public tender limited by prior qualified qualification is being developed.

Promoting the green and digital transition, ensuring the competitiveness of companies located in the three business reception areas (AAE) of Lagos, is the objective of the projects approved by the Municipal Council of this municipality.

To carry out the project, a public tender limited by simplified prior qualification is being developed, with a base price of 5 million euros.

This investment – ​​100% co-financed by the Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR) and corresponding to the only Algarve application approved among the ten selected at national level – will benefit a total area of ​​around 165 thousand square meters, where several dozen are installed. of companies, distributed across the three business reception areas of Lagos (two in Chinicato and one in Marateca).

Specifically, the projects foresee intervention in four distinct but interconnected components: renewable energy, sustainable mobility, communications and security.

In the field of renewable energy, it is planned to install energy production and storage systems (photovoltaic panels) for consumption by companies located in these areas, along with the creation of a Renewable Energy Community (CER).

Complementing this investment, in terms of mobility, 24 charging points for electric vehicles will be created, which will be accessible not only to businesspeople, but to other potential users.

The installation of an integrated telecommunications solution will reinforce 5G network coverage physically (by cable) and via radio (wireless), providing excellent signal quality to each of the companies located in the AAE.

The implementation of fire prevention and protection measures in business reception areas will allow, through infrared cameras (thermal cameras), early detection of fire outbreaks, ensuring shorter and more efficient response times, as the solution also provides for the permanent monitoring of the pressure of existing hydrants.

The integration of the four projects into a single execution contract is based on a logic of sharing and saving resources, namely the control room, which will monitor both energy production and fire detection, and the towers to be installed, which will serve both communications and the fire detection system.
