Germany: Veolia acquires Nuon Energie und Service GmbH and strengthens its position on the industrial services market

Through its German subsidiary Veolia Industrieservice , Veolia acquired Nuon Energie und Service GmbH , a member company of the Vattenfall Group , thus strengthening its position on the German industrial services market.

Nuon Energie und Service GmbH operates the utilities of two industrial parks in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany: the Bizzpark Oberbruch park located in Heinsberg, and the Niedereau industrial park in Düren.
A single operator, three areas of expertise for industrial services
Veolia will supply the two parks with electricity, gas and water (drinking water, process water and desalinated water), steam management services and waste management brokering.
The Group will also treat wastewater at the Heinsberg industrial park, and provide logistics services to companies on site. At the Niedereau industrial park, Veolia will operate a state-of-the-art gas turbine plant.
