The search for effectiveness, competitiveness and attractiveness, the need to adapt to climate change and environmental complexity, population demands and funding needs are all challenges faced by cities and industrials - and the traditional contractual models are no longer able to meet them.
The development of "AssetCo / Opco" partnerships
The "AssetCo / Opco" model offers a solution that incorporates the financing, operation and maintenance of the client’s facilities, while allowing partners the freedom to focus on their respective business activities: the investor provides the investment needed for optimizing the plant, and the operator - Veolia – is responsible for its operation and maintenance.
Veolia entered the energy market in Japan through this innovative model. In partnership with Takeei, a leading provider of environmental services in Japan, the Group will operate two biomass power plants in Hirakawa and Hanamaki for a period of 20 years. A first contract that is bound to open up new growth prospects.
