Akuo Energy is launching the construction of O'MEGA1 in Piolenc.
Louis Driey, Mayor of Piolenc, told us: "For Piolenc, the finalisation of this project is the result of many years of battles with the authorities to convince them of the value of this groundbreaking idea of a floating solar plant, the first - and currently only - such plant in France. The materialisation of this technological prowess that we have supported from the outset will make Piolenc the first 'positive energy' town in France, producing more energy than it uses."
Eric Scotto, President and Co-founder of Akuo Energy, adds: "For Akuo Energy, O'MEGA1 is the culmination of a number of firsts: first floating solar plant in France, first time the Group has opened up a project's capital to individuals and a municipality, first bank financing for floating solar…! Through this communal project, we are operating as a global player in the energy transition and hope this plant will serve as an example to follow for our future projects. It is a source of great pride for us to be working hand in hand with all these players making this an exemplary project!"
