Inauguration du site de production d’électricité verte dans les Hauts-de-France

27 October 2017

La Française de l’Energie, leader de l’écologie industrielle, a officiellement inauguré hier son site de production d’électricité verte à Avion en présence M. Philippe Vasseur, ancien Ministre – Commissaire spécial à la revitalisation et à la réindustrialisation des Hauts-de-France, et M. Philippe Rapeneau, Vice-président en charge du développement durable et de la transition énergétique des Hauts-de-France.

En complément de son activité de producteur de gaz, la Française de l’Energie produit également depuis fin juin de l’électricité à partir du gaz capté dans les anciennes mines des Hauts-de-France qu’elle revend à EDF Obligation d’achat. Le captage de ce gaz par La Française de l’Energie avant son rejet dans l atmosphère évite près de 250 000 tonnes de CO2 par an et lui permet de bénéficier d’un tarif de rachat électricité verte garanti pendant 15 ans.

Le Groupe dispose à ce jour de 4 sites de production d’électricité verte d’une puissance totale installée de 9MW. Ces sites ont déjà produit plus de 15 GWh en moins de 4 mois d’opérations, permettant ainsi à EDF OA de fournir en continu, grâce au réseau d’ENEDIS de l’électricité aux habitants des communes de Lourches, Divion et Avion.

Monsieur Philippe Rapeneau a déclaré : « Félicitations à Gazonor pour ce projet ambitieux qui valorise les ressources de notre sous-sol. Cette récupération du gaz de mine est pour le territoire une formidable opportunité. Nous devons faire de ce passé glorieux un avenir prometteur. »

Monsieur Philippe Vasseur a souligné: « Il est important aujourd’hui de rappeler précisément ce qu’est l’activité de Gazonor. C’est vertueux. C’est écologique. Par simple désorption on récupère le gaz qui s’échappe du charbon de toutes les façons, et on le valorise en circuits courts. Cette démarche, tout à fait exemplaire, est à encourager sur l’ensemble du bassin minier. »

Cette mise en production réussie conforte la stratégie de déploiement du Groupe qui a déjà identifié une dizaine de nouveaux sites à exploiter dans les Hauts-de-France.

Promises won't impact
climate change.
Your local resources, will.

Climate change is an undeniable reality. We can already see its serious consequences for our planet. It is now urgent to act.

At FDE, we refuse to participate in initiatives that generate pollution beyond our borders, even if they reduce the carbon footprint of our local territories. Whether it is a question of carbon footprint or pollution, there are no limits.

It is our duty to build sustainable energy solutions that move towards global carbon neutrality. Today, the most resilient and sustainable energy solution is even more self-evident: it is imperative that energy remains local, within short supply chains, as close as possible to the needs of local communities and consumers.

Considering these, at FDE, we are taking actions and offering tailor-made, local multi-energy solutions.

By making the most of local resources, our offer enables us to provide territories with energies with a triple benefit: reduced carbon footprint, economically competitive and contributing to the socio-economic development of the area. We choose abandoned sites, make the most of the potential of local suppliers and service providers, and participate in a local center of expertise that involves universities, local authorities and associations in the local energy project.

FDE lacks neither the resources nor the know-how to deploy tailor-made energy solutions for everyone and for the planet.

Our engineers embrace the energy transition with a pragmatic view.

Recovering abandoned mine gas avoids fatal gas emissions into the atmosphere, while local coal gas reduces the need to import much more carbon-intensive gases. Abundant solar energy is both local and renewable.

To support the energy transition, at FDE, we are constantly innovating, looking for new solutions for the future, such as hydrogen, a decarbonized energy, or CO2 sequestration in coal.

In addition, all energy produced by our Group is designed to be more virtuous. All these processes therefore make FDE the only French energy producer with a negative carbon footprint.

HSE POLICY

In accordance with its values and code of ethics, and with the aim of pursuing the objective of:

  • Guarantee the integrity of our assets,
  • Ensure a safe and healthy working environment for its employees and subcontractors,
  • Guarantee the health and safety of all personnel working on and off-site,
  • Limit environmental impact.

 

FDE wishes to promote the following HSE principles:

Identify, prevent and control impacts and risks to health, safety, security and the environment,

Develop the company's activities in a sustainable and eco-responsible manner,

Improve the working environment for its employees and subcontractors.

Consequently, FDE undertakes to:

Ensure the rigorous application of regulatory procedures in force with respect to safety, health, environment and the preservation of public security,

Impose operational management with advanced criteria for environmental protection, pollution prevention and energy optimization, as part of the ecological transition,

Systematically verify compliance with HSE principles through audits and practical exercises, with the aim of continuously improving the system and its performance,

Define indices and performance indicators for monitoring HSE activities and promote benchmarking to identify areas for improvement,

Encourage employee participation and involvement in health, safety and environmental protection processes through training and creation of tools for sharing experience and knowledge.

This culture of risk prevention and control applies to all employees, partners and suppliers. It involves setting concrete objectives and deploying action plans as part of a continuous improvement process to better anticipate tomorrow's challenges. This policy is reviewed annually, as are the associated indicators and targets.
