Assa Abloy solution for the largest German municipal company

Customer
Stadtwerke München GmbH (SWM) is the largest municipal company in Germany. With over 7,500 employees, SWM supplies the regional capital of Munich and the surrounding area with public services such as electricity, gas, water, district heating and cooling.

Via its subsidiaries SWM also provides telecommunications services and operates the public passenger transport network in Munich.

Challenge
SWM is responsible for several thousand objects. These include buildings, shafts and electrical mains transformer stations to name but a few, some of which are over 100 years old. Its responsibility also covers installations using new and old locking systems, different organizational set-ups including employee shift work and on-call services, the widely different environmental conditions in district heating systems, damp and high dust exposure in the underground and temperature deviations in power stations.

Due to the requirement by the Federal Ministry of the Interior for the protection of critical infrastructures, a standardized and sustainable locking and access solution was urgently needed.

Solution
The VERSO CLIQ system from ASSA ABLOY met the system requirements and also contained the essential software enhancements to meet SWM's demands. VERSO CLIQ became a special solution offering a quantum leap forward in terms of functionality, security and range of use.

Its benefits include on-key programmable access rights, authorization of up to 20,000 locking cylinders per key, the possibility of up to 1,500 freely programmable groups per key, multi-client capability with decentralized allocation of rights and new procedures for a clear and comprehensible allocation of access rights. As of November 2013, 14,000 cylinders, 3,000 keys and 50 authorization terminals had been installed. The scope of the completed project will be for 40,000-50,000 cylinders.
