SSE plc has announced changes to the ownership of its Mayflower Smart Control business, (formerly a trading name of SSE Contracting Limited) that will see it become part of its Distributed Energy business within its Energy Solutions division following the sale of SSE Contracting.
Mayflower Smart Control has been owned by SSE Contracting for over a decade, providing smart street lighting controls and services through its Mayflower Central Management System. With almost half a million units across the UK and Ireland, Mayflower is a leading name in the smart lighting market.
This change of legal ownership reflects Mayflower’s expansion from a smart lighting controls provider into the added domains of smart cities, places and buildings and their associated IoT technologies. The recently launched Mayflower Smart Cities and Places platform exploits Mayflower’s Zigbee, LoRa and Bluetooth communication protocols to combine data from a range of smart sensors, devices and applications – providing a complete overview of campus, town and/or city operations enabling clients to achieve their smart ambitions.
Patrick Mitchell, Head of Mayflower Smart Control commented: “Mayflower’s transition to SSE’s Distributed Energy business is a significant and hugely beneficial milestone. The launch of Mayflower Smart Cities and Places last year further demonstrates the commitment to developing innovative solutions for our clients, and we look forward to continuing our development as part of SSE Energy Solutions.”
“We’re very pleased to remain part of the SSE Group and want to assure existing clients and partners that despite the sale of SSE Contracting Mayflower’s services will continue as normal.”
Stephen Stead, Director of Strategy and Digital Services for SSE Energy Solutions, added: “SSE Energy Solutions has already made a significant investment in the development of our smart propositions, and the addition of Mayflower Smart Control will only strengthen our position within the smart cities and places market. Mayflower will now form part of a wider product suite that will include smart buildings, which is set to become a core component of our whole systems approach in which we invest in, build and connect localised, flexible energy assets to accelerate our clients’ pathways to net zero.”
Mayflower Smart Control will now operate as a trading name of TESGL Limited, which forms part of SSE’s Distributed Energy business within its Energy Solutions division.
