Electricity production by Idex

We support our clients in designing, developing, running and maintaining their installations, offering them electrical energy supply tailored to their needs.

Our preferred energy is cogenerated and biomass.

Managing electricity production installations

As with other industrial utilities (such as steam, compressed air and gas), electricity is widely used in industry, with some manufacturers turning to producing their own electricity in a bid to achieve energy self-sufficiency. Their production installations may be thermal, mechanical, wind-powered or solar-powered, depending on the primary energy used. Thermal power stations draw on fossil fuels (coal, natural gas or oil) or organic fuels (biomass, biogas, waste) thanks to heat recovery installations.

Idex prioritizes renewable and recovered energies for all our electricity production facilities. We primarily manage cogeneration infrastructures, or power stations fueled by biomass or any other type of renewable energy. We help clients regain control over their CO2 emissions, and reduce their energy costs, too.

As with other industrial utilities, electricity production installations play a central role in industrial productivity. As a result, our clients have incredibly high expectations when they entrust us with managing their installations. We pay particularly close care to ensuring their facilities remain safe, reliable and adaptable. We understand that energy savings are a key priority for you, too.

Electricity production plants managed by Idex

Centre Hospitalier Spécialisé (CHS) site in Fains-Veel (55, France)

In late 2019, Idex opened a cogeneration plant at the Centre Hospitalier Spécialisé (CHS) site in Fains-Veel (55, France). This two-in-one solution has been designed, developed and managed by our group.

Financed by Idex, the plant is set to produce electricity that is then resold directly over the electricity network via a CR16 cogeneration contract.

The cogenerated heat will be transferred to Idex and used to heat the CHS hospital centre over the contract’s 15-year period.

Through its Idex Industries subsidiary, Idex also runs a cogeneration plant on behalf of a paper manufacturer.

The plant produces 500,000 tons of steam every year via gas and biogass cogeneration and multi-fuel boilers. The electricity generated at this site is injected into the power grid and resold on the market.

The steam is used exclusively by the site.
