Expressions of Interest


The Manx Utilities Authority is a statutory authority providing electricity, wholesale natural gas and clean water and processes waste water on the Isle of Man. This means that Manx Utilities is wholly owned and funded by the Isle of Man Government, which has an AA+ credit rating.

e-llan Communications Ltd (eCL) is a wholesale provider of large communications bandwidth to the telecomms sector on the Isle of Man and through to the UK. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Manx Utilities Authority.

Following a recent upgrade of e-llan’s transmission equipment we now have surplus Marconi/Ericsson OMS 1664 and MHL 3000 products to dispose of. Some of the equipment has been used and was deployed throughout the UK and Isle of Man and some of the equipment comes from our spares holding and is unused.

We are seeking to dispose of the equipment by means of direct sale or consignment and will be interested in hearing from any organisations that specialise in dealing with this equipment. The complete set of equipment will be located in Bispham UK for collection, will be offered without warranty.
