Direct Energie acquired two combined cycle natural gas thermal power plants, one in Bayet (Allier) and another in Marcinelle (Belgium), and today has an electricity generation capacity of approximately 800 MW.
At the same time, the Group is also pursuing its ambitious industrial strategy by continuing to develop new generation capacities. In February 2012, the Direct Energie Siemens consortium was awarded a contract by the French government for the construction of a combined cycle natural gas thermal power plant with a capacity of 400 MW near the municipality of Landivisiau (Finistère).
The Group is also a candidate for the expected renewal of major hydropower concessions by forming strategic partnerships. Finally, a biomethane production pilot project was initiated in 2014.
These strategic developments contribute to our position as a flexible energy producer offering a diversified energy mix with efficient generating technologies, allowing Direct Energie to present more attractive and competitive energy supply offers.
