Meridiam supports the ecological transition with two new investments in France to bolster the coal phase-out.
Meridiam, a leader in the investment and long-term management of infrastructure projects announces two investments in a black pellet production unit and in a biomass cogeneration plant in the Champagne-Ardenne region, France.
Meridiam has closed the financing of two plants, a 12 MW biomass cogeneration plant producing electricity and heat, and a pellet mill which will produce both white pellets and so-called black pellets (annual capacity of 120,000 tons of pellets). This integrated project is the first of its kind in France.
Meridiam has a majority stake of 80.5% equity shares in the holding company owning the plants alongside co-shareholders Caisse des Depots et Consignations, and Européenne de Biomasse, a French company specialized in the biomass and pellet sectors.
