EDF Fenice & Danone: a global engineering partnership to optimise energy and environmental services

29 October 2014

Danone, a world-leading group in the food and beverage industry, and EDF Fenice, an EDF Group energy services supplier, have just signed a new partnership to improve energy efficiency and environmental services in Danone’s plants all over the world. 

The framework of the agreement initially covers about 80 industrial sites.

The partnership covers the whole engineering value chain within energy and waste cycles: 
  • ­Design and realization engineering, including commissioning, dealing with facilities (boiler houses, chiller houses, compressor rooms, substations, waste water treatment plants, waste management etc.)
  • ­Performance engineering, dealing with operational control performance and implementation of energy efficiency and waste efficiency projects
  • ­Environmental consulting (due diligences, monitoring, analysis, emissions etc.)
  • ­Training for Danone’s resources in the framework of EDF Fenice Energy Efficiency Campus

EDF Fenice’s process and project engineering commits to achieving significant decreases in energy consumption and non-core service costs, in order to strengthen Danone’s competitiveness: in the energy sector, the comparison between base-line raw material specific consumption and actual specific consumption will determine the attribution of success fees to the French supplier. In addition, the partnership will bring a strong reduction in CO2 emissions.

Danone and EDF Fenice will first implement pilot projects in Russia and then continue their cooperation in other countries, following the same model.
