Blackline Safety Announces $3.9 Million Renewal with Leading U.S. Utility Company

Services contract includes monitoring and push-to-talk capabilities to protect 2,200 workers

Blackline Safety Corp. (TSX: BLN), a global leader in connected safety technology, has announced that it has secured a $3.9 million contract renewal with one of the largest utility companies in the U.S. Headquartered in the Midwest and serving more than four  million customers, the company became a Blackline customer in late 2021.

The renewal adds two more years of monitoring by Blackline’s Safety Operations Center (SOC) as well as push-to-talk services for the utility company’s 2,200 G7 devices. The customer is renewing the contract two and a half years after initial device deployment.

“We’re very pleased the company is seeing the benefits of Blackline’s technology,” said Blackline Safety Vice President of Client Success, Donnovan Simon. “Over the last two years, Blackline’s SOC monitoring and push-to-talk have facilitated communication and driven operational efficiencies, all while keeping their workers connected and protected.”

Utility industry workers face multiple hazards on the job such as gas exposures, confined spaces, potential falls, adverse weather, customer confrontations, and working alone in areas with limited cellular coverage. The award-winning wearable G7—with features such as gas detection, SOS latch, fall and no motion detection, push-to-talk, and real-time connectivity—provides a critical lifeline in case of emergency.

This is the second time in just over a month that Blackline has announced growth in the utility sector—the first being a new $1.5 million deal with a California utility provider in May. Blackline also protects half of the water and wastewater companies in the United Kingdom, and recently expanded their water and wastewater client base into Australia.
