Electrabel s.a. Key Developments

ENGIE Reportedly Plans To List Electrabel

ENGIE SA (ENXTPA:GSZ) intends to list Electrabel s.a. in order to share the rising costs of its nuclear activities, La Lettre de L'Expansion reported without citing its sources. ENGIE seeks to attract new investors, including potentially the Belgian government, the report stated. “The idea of bringing in partners is one that the Belgian government put on the table,” Chief Executive Officer Gerard Mestrallet said on July 1, 2015 in Paris. “The subject has been brought up. The door isn’t closed.”

Electrabel Restarts Max Green Biomass Plant

Electrabe restarted Max Green Biomass plant located in Rodenhuize, in the port area of Gent on August 28, 2014, following the agreement reached with the authorities and stakeholders involved in the renewal of green certificates. The allocation of green certificates for Max Green plant was conditioned upon a prior statement from Belgian industry federations active in the wood and paper sector. The plant had been forced to shut down because such statement, which was necessary for the period 2014-2016, had not been signed. Following constructive dialogue with all parties involved and with the Flemish government, a solution has been found to allow the restart of Max Green. The plant, which has a capacity of 215 MW, is the biomass unit of the country and can cover the power consumption of 320,000 households. Electrabel is pleased with the restart of this unit, which will as a result be available for the upcoming winter. Electrabel uses all means at its disposal in order to guarantee the supply of power to its customers and thereby contribute to security of supply in Belgium.
