In october 2018, Akuo Energy finalised the acquisition of CHB (Centrales Hydroélectriques de Bulgarie), a portfolio of four active hydropower plants (Kokaliane, Passarel, Yahinovo and Germanea) in operation with an installed capacity of 63 MW. The acquisition of this portfolio allows Akuo Energy to strengthen its hydroelectric division and accelerate its activity in Bulgaria as an IPP but also as a player
on the deregulated energy market.
This external growth operation enables the French group to acquire a team of 30 engineers and technicians specialised in running and maintaining hydroelectric plants. This experienced team will strengthen the Group’s current hydroelectric teams and help it achieve its sizeable ambitions regarding this type of energy.
