Dalkia has won a renewed contract to manage heat generation and distribution in Bratislava.

The cumulative revenue from the deal is worth more than $1.44bn for a contract which extends over 20 years.
Dalkia, a unit of Veolia Environnement (VE ) and EDF (Euronext: EDF), will also take care of the installation of high-performance cogeneration plants, which would simultaneously produce both electricity and heat. The electricity generated would be sold to the Slovak national grid and the heat would supply the district heating network.

Cogeneration would be assured by 18 gas turbines installed in the existing heating plants, with a total capacity of 15 MW of electricity.

“The extension of our partnership with the city of Bratislava rewards the efforts put in by Dalkia over the past 14 years, both in terms of quality of service and energy efficiency . We will continue to upgrade the heating network, partly by reinforcing the distribution network’s reliability and also by improving the system’s energy efficiency, with no impact on tariffs,” stated Vincent Barbier, Chief Executive of Dalkia in Slovakia.
