1. Building low-carbon energy sources & developing the grids

We need to renounce fossil fuels which represent 80% of primary energy sources in the world.

Today wind and solar represent only 6% of electricity generation. While this share will grow, the network needs to adapt.

  • First it needs to be able to accept more connection of solar, wind and hydro powerplants.
  • Second, it needs to be able to deal with very fluctuating energy flows, depending on weather conditions.
  • Third it needs to be able to deal with the high variability thanks to  new balancing assets

Throughout the energy value chain, we will continue to build and connect low-carbon energy sources, adapt the network to increase the share of renewable energies.

Also, we will continue maintaining the carbon-free nuclear plants with a high level of safety.

2.Promoting optimized energy use

The best energy is the one we do not use. This goes with the concept of sobriety and efficiency.
 It’s important for us to design solutions that are energy sufficient and at the same time to use materials and processes which  are more efficient.
More specifically that  means for us:
  • For each project, accompany our clients on the road to energy sufficiency and efficiency by properly dimensioning our offer to their real needs.
  • Supportcities to optimize streetlighting services: from project design to the implementation of the energy performance contracttailored to the customers’ needs
  • Adapt process and organization transforming the networks into a multi-service platform

3. Implementing innovative and collaborative solutions​

By integrating digital and all the improvements it brings, we need to continue to develop tools allowing us and our customer to be more efficient, and new business models that put energy at the heart of our concerns.

Dismantling project in Germany in a protected area  

In August 2019, Omexom in Germany was awarded lot 5 for the construction of a 380 kV link between Emden/Ost and Conneforde. The assignment included the modernization of the existing 220 kV connection. Three of the pylons to be replaced were located in the Herrenmoor nature reserve between the municipalities of Zetel and Westerstede in the district of Friesland.

Episode 8 – Omexom Green Story: Minimizing the impact of substation construction on biodiversity

This episode of the Omexom Green Story takes us to Eemshaven, in the Netherlands. Here, our local business unit has contributed to sowing 25 000 m2 of wildflowers native to the region around a new substation to offset the impact of the infrastructure on the local habitat. A bee hotel and an electric vehicle charging point on site further highlight the intention of rethinking our operations to minimiz the impact of substation construction ob biodiversity.

Grid resilience: Omexom in New Zealand finishes work on Clutha Upper Waitaki Lines Project

On New Zealand’s South Island, Omexom crews have finished works on the Clutha Upper Waitaki Lines Project (CUWLP), a major step in securing the future of the country’s energy supply. By increasing the resilience of the electricity grid in the project area, CUWLP will facilitate further renewable energy development and reduce emissions by increasing New Zealand’s total share of renewable energy.

Webinar InMotion: How 50 Dutch students revolutionize the car racing industry

Electric vehicles are a main part of achieving the energy transition, Omexom’s mission. However, so far, traditional fuel cars represent one feature that prevents adopting electric mobility more widely: convenience. Despite government efforts across Europe, charging stations remain scarce, so reliability is a major challenge. Another one is charging time.

Dutch and German Omexom teams collaborate on Gemini Wind Park in the Netherlands

The Gemini Wind Park is one of largest offshore wind parks in Europe. Located in the North Sea, 85 km off the coast of the Netherlands, it became operational in 2017. With a rated capacity of 600 megawatts, Gemini generates renewable electricity for 1.5 million people while reducing CO₂ emissions by 1.25 million tons per year. Built between 2014 and 2017, the wind park will provide clean energy for decades to come. To make sure that Gemini performs at its best, operations and maintenance are a key part of the project.
