Major utility turns to Cliq for access

London, UK

When everyone working for Eskilstuna Energi och Miljö in Sweden needed their own tailored access rights, the solution chosen was the Cliq system. The public utility has installed Cliq locks on interior and exterior doors across its multiple sites, which include a waterworks, a heating plant, a recycling centre and 300 pump stations.

From safe, unpolluted water to dependable electricity supply, Eskilstuna needs Eskilstuna Energi och Miljö to keep working round the clock. Everyday life and economic activity in this small city west of Stockholm relies on its utility, which is why the company turned to an access-control system tailored to securing critical infrastructure and high-security premises with a vast array of lock types.

The innovative Cliq locking system allows administrators to issue employees with a mechatronic key that can be programmed to open any locks in the organisation. Around 400 Eskilstuna Energi employees—plus consultants, technicians and water-tower tenants—each carry a Cliq key.

“Cliq's programmable keys allow us to give access to certain doors, to certain people and at a certain time,” says Annica Strandberg, security manager at Eskilstuna Energi och Miljö.

Thanks to a simple, web-based administration system, it is just as easy to trace every use or revoke access rights for a Cliq key, too.

“For every public utility, high security is a priority. The Cliq system eradicates the risks associated with any lost mechanical key,” says Thomas Schulz at the Assa Abloy group.
