The two plants are slated to come on stream in the first half of 2009.

The two power stations, in which €400 million will be invested, and which will be built in the north-east of France, on land at the Emile Huchet plant and will increase the French subsidiary’s current installed capacity by 30%.

At the same time, a 35km gas pipeline will be built for €24 million, linking GRT Gaz’s main gas pipeline to the plant. Snet and Gaz de France Transport have signed a contract to build this gas pipeline, which will come on stream in December 2008.
