The agreement was formalised at the Résidence de France in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on July 8 in the presence of Agnès Pannier-Runacher, Minister for Energy Transition, and Ludovic Pouille, Ambassador of France to Saudi Arabia.
Developing sustainable energy solutions to meet current environmental challenges is more necessary than ever. While electrification is now a priority on a global scale, hydrogen has become a promising alternative to achieve the objectives of decarbonisation and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. By combining their complementary skills, Assystem and Doris wish to strengthen their contribution to this crucial energy transition around the world.
Assystem and Doris have been in discussions since 2021 and have already obtained a first major contract in France for a low-carbon hydrogen plant project. The two companies have also worked together on the development of offshore electrical substations to connect wind farms in France.
These first collaborations made it possible to identify strong synergies between the two companies. By combining Assystem's expertise in engineering, digital technology and the management of complex projects in the field of electricity with Doris' in-depth experience in process engineering and its unique knowledge of offshore, this enhanced collaboration will enable to offer innovative and tailor-made solutions to meet the specific needs of customers in these rapidly developing sectors. The two companies will pool their expertise to provide complete integrated engineering services from the design phases to the implementation of projects.
“We are delighted to formalise this strategic partnership with Doris” said Thomas Branche, Executive Vice-President – France, Nuclear & Energy New Build. “We are at the dawn of considerable investment in the energy transition. By joining forces, we will be able to provide effective solutions in the fields of low-carbon hydrogen and offshore electricity networks, thus contributing to the acceleration of the energy transition and the fight against climate change.”
