With the acquisition of SUEZ’s nuclear maintenance activity, ENGIE, via its subsidiary ENDEL, completes its range of services for the nuclear and industry sectors

January 9, 2019

ENDEL announces the acquisition of SUEZ’s nuclear maintenance activity (formerly SRA SAVAC), which is changing its name to ENDEL SRA.

This strategic acquisition will supplement ENDEL’s specialized and high added-value services for complex environments such as the nuclear sector. It will also enable ENDEL to further extend its territorial presence in France and open up new prospects internationally.

A well-established business in the nuclear sector

Specializing in services for nuclear power plant operators, SUEZ’s nuclear activity has been providing a complete portfolio of services for primary and secondary circuits of nuclear power plants for the past 35 years. These services include jetting and inspecting steam generators, conducting televisual inspections and extractions of foreign matters, facility cleaning and decontaminating pressurisers. Based in Vaulx-en-Velin (Rhône-Alpes), SUEZ’s nuclear activity employs 180 people and reached a turnover of €28 million in 2017, €4 million of which were generated abroad.

With its training center based in Vaulx-en-Velin, SUEZ’s nuclear maintenance activity demonstrates the significant importance it attaches to the training of its employees who operate in highly-demanding environments in terms of safety and quality.

ENDEL SRA, integrated services to develop ENDEL on an international level

The services the new ENDEL SRA subsidiary has developed and delivered are particularly well known in the nuclear ecosystem and will provide power plant operators with high added-value benefits.

By acquiring SUEZ’s nuclear activity, ENDEL will be able to supplement the range of high added-value services that it provides for major components in power plants (tanks, steam generators, pressurisers, etc.), and extend its regional coverage while opening up new prospects internationally. The complementary nature of ENDEL’s activities and those of its new subsidiary ENDEL SRA will help bolster its capabilities for conducting non-destructive inspections, dismantling operations, operations in the shipbuilding sector, etc. This sale is in line with SUEZ’s desire to focus its activities on waste recycling and recovery in France by favoring the circular economy.

“We are delighted that SUEZ’s nuclear activity is joining ENDEL with which we have worked for more than 20 years. In addition to the French nuclear park, we have previously worked successfully with ENGIE subsidiaries such as TECNUBEL, that will continue to contribute to our national and international development by consolidating our strong synergies”, said Jean-Paul Mandier, Director of ENDEL SRA.

"This acquisition is a real opportunity for both our companies. With this new subsidiary, the complementary nature of our expertise will provide our clients with an even more complete range of maintenance services for the nuclear and industrial sectors”, said Émeric Burin des Roziers, Managing Director of ENDEL.
