ENGIE has acquired two new units in the Netherlands, which represent the Group's first biomethane production facilities in the country.
Located in Hardenberg (province of Overijssel) and Alkmaar (province of North Holland), these two new plants have an annual biomethane production capacity of 90 GWh and 47 GWh respectively.
Both units can be extended to reach an annual production capacity of 150 GWh for the Hardenberg unit and 94 GWh for the Alkmaar unit, according to ENGIE.
These two new acquisitions, which follow those of Ixora Energy and Rainbarrow Farm in the UK, strengthen the Group's presence in Europe, bringing its installed production capacity to 1.1 TWh, added the organisation.
They contribute to ENGIE's target of reaching 10 TWh of biomethane production per year by 2030 in Europe, which was announced in February last year.
Cécile Prévieu, executive vice president in charge of ENGIE's Infrastructure activities, said: "With these two acquisitions in the Netherlands, we have now entered a third country for biomethane production in Europe. We intend to invest steadily in this renewable, local and sovereign energy source. Renewable gases are essential to the energy transition and will make a major contribution to the decarbonisation of the European economy."
