Telecom Italia (TIM) and two partners have won a deal to manage a waste tracking project for the Italian government.
The operator is working with IT provider AlmavivA and consulting firm Agriconsulting to run SISTRI, a system that allows the computerised tracking of “special” waste at national level, and urban waste in the Campania Region.
The five year deal, worth €260 million, includes the tracking of the entire waste life cycle through loading and unloading records, handling cards and route registration.
The three companies also hope to create a market place for waste that can be reused.
TIM will provide a range of services for the project, including the implementation and management of cloud computing services through its data centres, and vehicle tracking services.
AlmavivA will manage and develop applications and provide analytics, while Agriconsulting will develop application solutions.
Consip, a consulting and procurement body set up by the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance, tendered the project.
Last month, TIM teamed up with Hewlett Packard Enterprise to upgrade Italy’s public connectivity system as part of another Consip tender.
Lorenzo Forina, Head of Business and Top Clients at TIM, said: “This initiative confirms TIM’s role as a technological partner of Public Administration and the constant commitment to the digitisation of Italy, deploying enabling infrastructure and platforms to support projects that have a strong impact on growth and development, like SISTRI, capable of encouraging greater environmental sustainability to benefit citizens and businesses.”
