ENGIE says that regional offices will be used as part of its updated strategy to keep accelerating the transition towards carbon-neutral economies.
The joining of ENGIE MESCAT and Africa is seen as mutually beneficial, combining scale and expertise with deep market knowledge.
ENGIE MESCATA’s newly-appointed CEO, Sébastien Arbola, said: “Enlarging our geographical scope will allow us to have a much greater impact on the markets where we operate and to better serve our clients as we accompany them in their path towards carbon neutrality.
“Our strategic focus will be on markets that are currently or potentially large, have attractive growth profiles and a transparent and stable regulatory framework. We will maintain a strong local presence to build up-front relationships with our customers and respond to their needs.”
In line with ENGIE’s strategic orientations, ENGIE MESCATA’s activities will revolve around four major priorities: growth opportunities in thermal energy and desalination; growth in renewable energies; investments in energy infrastructure project; and refocus of client solutions on complex, high value-added offers in the countries where it already has a firm presence.
