When China channels its energy
At a time when energy services are continuing to develop in China, Veolia has won three contracts for a total value of €864 million. The challenge was to maximize the performance of a data center, a biomass cogeneration and chemicals companies to bring them more easily into line with the increasingly stringent environmental regulations.

Métropole de Lille: Record heat pipeline
The Métropole Européenne de Lille (MEL) interdistrict authority has awarded Covalys, a joint venture held 65% by Veolia, the public service contract to operate Antares, the authority’s energy recovery facility. Until now, the energy generated through thermal treatment of household waste only covered the facility’s own electricity needs. But from now on, 40% of the energy will directly supply two district heating networks in Roubaix and Lille. The 12-year contract is worth cumulative revenue of €295 million and will speed up MEL’s energy transition. It will also set a new record: at 19 km, the heat pipeline that will come into service at the end of 2020 to connect Antares to the district heating networks will be one of the longest in France for energy transmission.
Winning combination in Mexico City
Veolia will design, build and operate for 30 years the first waste-toenergy plant in Latin America for a total amount of €886 million. With a capacity twice that of the largest plant of its type in France, it will treat almost 1.6 million metric tons of municipal solid waste a year.
