Pont Sur Sambre Power SAS and Toul Power SAS operate two combined cycle power plants (gas and steam turbines – CCGT) of latest technology with 825MW combined capacity, equivalent to the consumption of 800,000 households..

Second largest non-incumbent and 4th overall largest French electricity producer, PSS Power and Power Toul operate independently on the French market, and are 100% owned by the investment fund KKR.

The innovative combined cycle technology is particularly efficient from the environmental perspective (60% reduction of CO2 emissions per MWh compared to a coal power plant). In fact it combines the use of an efficient input, natural gas, and high-efficiency of the combined Gas and Steam cycles, recycling the heat generated by gas combustion cycle in the steam cycle.

Moreover thanks to their flexibility PSS Power and Power Toul are able to be mobilized quickly to adapt to real-time production needs. PSS Power and Power Toul contribute to securing the continuity of electricity supply in France, particularly during winter peak demand. This flexibility is a strong ecological asset to support the growth of intermittent renewable energy.

The power plant of PSS Power, with a capacity of 412MW, is located in Pont-Sur-Sambre (Nord) and was commissioned in September 2009.

The power plant of Toul Power, with a capacity of 413MW, is located in Toul (Meurthe-et-Moselle) and was commissioned in December 2012.

Furthermore the  Courbevoie (Hauts de Seine) office performs the optimization and dispatching of production as and hosts the support and management functions.

PSS Power and Toul Power are members of AFIEG, the French Independent Association for Electricity and Gas. They enhance representativeness of alternative operators and producers, especially in power generation based on combined cycle gas power plants (www.afieg.fr).

TOUL POWER
Presentation

With a capacity of 413 MW, Toul Power plant was commissioned in December 2012 and is located in Toul (Meurthe-et-Moselle).

To supply the plant in gas, a pipeline of 28 km has been specifically built by GRTgaz from the town of Blénod-les-Pont-à-Mousson.

Constructed on a NATO air base site by architect Pascal Dutertre, Toul Power sophisticated architectural design fits particularly well in the landscape.

A specific feature of Toul Power Plant compared to PSS Power: the cooling system is done by air and not by water, thanks to an impressive heat exchanger.

Respect of environment

Toul Power plant complies with all the regulations relating to Classified Installations for Environmental Protection (ICPE).

Furthermore, extensive studies were conducted to further limit the potential impacts on the natural environment (flora and fauna, water, air).

Powerful symbol of this environmental performance, Toul Power has been welcoming since summer 2016 a flock of sheep grazing on meadows located close to the plant.

Toul Power is proud to belong to a region of strong character and to support the local economy and local life.
