EDF Energies Nouvelles expands its solar power and wind energy activities to Belgium

With the creation of EDF EN Services Belgium, EDF Energies Nouvelles now offers its operations & maintenance (O&M) services for renewable energy installations in Belgium via its dedicated subsidiary, EDF EN Services.

Jointly-owned by EDF Luminus, an EDF Group company in Belgium, the new unit provides management services for EDF Luminus and third-party owner-operators at wind farms and solar plants right across Belgium.

EDF EN Services Belgium and its first local unit are based close to Liège.

Its maintenance technicians and engineers will work locally on wind farms and on solar plants belonging to various owners, including those operated by EDF Luminus, which currently holds over 10% of Belgium’s renewable power generating capacity.

To provide optimum service, the renewable facilities managed by EDF EN Services Belgium will be overseen and optimized by EDF EN Services’ pan-European Operations Control Center, which tracks installations round the clock.

Following on from France, Greece, the United Kingdom, Germany, Poland and Italy, EDF EN Services, a major player in O&M services for renewable energy assets, is pursuing its European expansion by moving into Belgium.

At year-end 2014, EDF EN Services handled O&M activities at close to 2.4 GW in renewable energy facilities across Europe.
