Smart solar energy for residents of social housing in Belgium

Breakthrough
Providing renewable energy to social housing is not straightforward. The past few years have shown that more than once. There are quite a few hurdles to overcome, but in these times of uncertainty about energy prices, the two parties involved are together pulling full steam ahead with renewable energy in the interests of residents.

Profit for all
The social housing company is convinced that this provides nothing but benefits for the tenants. “A lower energy cost for the tenant means a little more breathing space for other living needs and in this way we can also reduce the risk of (more) poverty,” says Eddy De Vlieger, general manager of SHM Denderstreek.

The only cost that the tenant has following the installation of PV panels is a rent charge that one is obliged to pay (this is imposed by the government). But this rent charge is calculated in such a way that the tenant always benefits from the PV panels, even if they benefit from social rates. So the energy bill will reduce significantly anyway.” – Tom Van Den Berghe – project manager SHM Denderstreek

Fast realisation
There are several strong elements in the approach”, says Pieter Callebaut, strategic business developer of IZEN. “The Social Housing Company can count on a completely worry-free approach. Moreover, we go for a quick realisation. We provide 102 houses with a complete solar installation in 10 days”.

IZEN stands for a very professional approach. Everything is discussed and well prepared in advance so that the implementation runs extremely smoothly. There is a very good communication to the building owner and the tenants.” Tom Van Den Berghe – Project Manager SHM Denderstreek

Educational package and party for residents
What’s going on up there on your roof? How do you make sure you’re using your power optimally? What does this mean for me? Will this cost me more in rent? How do you use energy more economically? IZEN creates an educational package for residents. “Little text, lots of pictograms and in different languages. Those are the parameters. The recipient really has to get something out of it,” says Pieter Callebaut. The residents are also invited to a festive and educational moment.

Rebranding and opening of a new branch in Asse for Axians/TranzCom

Asse, 3 October 2022 – TranzCom, the brand of VINCI Energies Belgium dedicated to telecommunications and energy distribution, recently transferred its telecommunication activities to its Axians brand. Axians is the brand of VINCI Energies that focuses on information and telecommunication technology. In addition to the rebranding, both Axians and TranzCom will be relocating to new premises on Kruiskouter in Asse, with the festive opening planned for 5 October!

VINCI Energies Belgium, employing a workforce of 2,800 and with a revenue of €600 million euros, acquired the former AEG TranzCom in 2015. The current rebranding campaign will house TranzCom’s telecommunications activities with Axians. The energy division will continue to operate as TranzCom. Furthermore, both entities will be relocating to new premises in Asse.

The site in Asse, with new office spaces, a 4,000 m2 metal workshop, test laboratories and numerous other facilities, will be accommodating 110 employees, ranging from engineers and technicians to skilled workers and administrative staff, for at least nine years’, announces Frédéric Mayné, Managing Director of VINCI Energies Belgium’s Infra & Telecom Division.

‘The new premises will give us the space and facilities we need to achieve our ambitions for the coming years. We are currently looking for more than ten highly qualified candidates to fill a number of vacant positions’, says Marc Lemaire, Managing Director of VINCI Energies Belgium. ‘In our ongoing search for efficiency and simplification, bringing similar activities together under the same brand name in order to achieve maximum synergy is a logical and inevitable step.’

Giving back to the community
Aside from the rebranding and relocation to Asse, there is another reason to celebrate for VINCI Energies and its subsidiaries: the 10-year anniversary of the VINCI Fund. The company has always demonstrated a high level of social engagement and, together with its employees, wishes to contribute to the wellbeing of the local community through social and/or sports activities. This prompted the company to establish the Belgian VINCI Fund in 2012.

The VINCI Fund supports organisations with a social and societal goal, joining forces to fight every form of exclusion and give every member of our society a place, position and dignity of their own. We do this not only through financial support, but also by giving our employees the chance to do volunteer work (via a mentorship) for the organisations that receive support from the Fund, concludes Marc Lemaire.

Ecological and economical: IZEN helps Belgian companies with sustainability and savings through industrial-scale solar energy

All three projects were commissioned by Menapy, a Flemish green energy specialist that acts as an intermediary and financier for companies in Belgium, France, Spain and Italy, helping them switch to cheap and sustainable energy without major investment through its solar-as-a-service model.

Local champions

For the design, purchase of the materials and installation of the solar panels, Menapy, which was founded by a few solar veterans and Belgian investors, standardly issues a tender to find the best partner for each project. For the solar carports in Belgium, IZEN invariably came out on top.

Wherever we are active, we work with local champions. We always look for a combination of many different factors: engineering knowhow and expertise, safety, the necessary scale to deliver everything on time, both technically and administratively, and of course a competitive price. IZEN scored strongly on all aspects, and consistently delivered exceptional work,” explains Tom Pollyn, founder and general manager of Menapy. “Communication before, during and after the installation is crucial too – another area where IZEN managed to stand out.”

Quality, reliability and long-term vision

Solar installations, especially on an industrial scale, are particularly complex projects, where you are guaranteed to encounter unexpected obstacles. On moments like these, our twenty years of experience, expertise in the field and scale make the difference, which does not go unnoticed by customers. By going for quality, reliability and a clear long-term vision, but also by delivering on our promises, customers know they can wholeheartedly trust us with their projects, at very competitive prices. And so they keep coming back”, declares Jo Van Beek, sales project manager at IZEN.

Together, Menapy and IZEN have realized three solar carport projects in Belgium: for UZ Brussel, Westvlees and Boortmalt, always to the satisfaction of the end client. Although each project brought different challenges, IZEN every time managed to work out the best possible solution by looking at the specific circumstances on site.

Sven Hebbelinck, technical director UZ Brussel: “Sustainability is one of the pillars of our policy. That is why, in 2018, we decided to install an additional 4,500 m² of solar panels on our roofs, in addition to those already in place. Afterwards, a solar carport was added, with facilities for charging stations. The circumstances, such as the proximity of a protected Natura 2000 area at less than 60 meters distance, and the fact the parking had to remain in use during construction, made the works a real challenge, but thanks to the clear communication, good planning and follow-up of IZEN everything went surprisingly smoothly and without significant difficulties.”

Anthony Van Eeckhout, head of People at Westvlees – Belgian Pork Group: “Our company has massive cooling needs. We have therefore been working on making our energy and water consumption more sustainable for years. As such, the solar carport fits perfectly within the Westvlees philosophy, and is also a real showpiece for our company – our thanks to IZEN for the beautiful work! The carport, by the way, does not just supply us with energy: the rainwater too is collected and purified to be used afterwards. Last but not least, for our employees, who work in a cool environment, it is a plus to find their car fully charged and pleasantly fresh in the evening.

In the Port of Antwerp, IZEN and Menapy also built a solar carport for Boortmalt, the largest malt group in the world. “We are a very energy intensive company and require huge amounts of heat and electricity to make malt”, says Joris Van Valckenborgh, group energy manager at Boortmalt. Because the company wants to halve its CO² emissions by 2030, it decided to opt for a solar carport. “Sixty charging stations have been installed for employees or visitors to charge their cars. Of course, the shelter also provides shade and coolness in summer.”

VINCI Energies wants to recruit more women


VINCI Energies in Belgium launches second ‘Women in technology’ campaign

For many companies, International Women’s Day each year is the time to put their female employees in the spotlight and highlight their efforts as an organization to provide women with equal opportunities and recognition. However commendable, the ideal of course is to put those efforts into practice every single day, for women as well as other, non-binary gender identities. 

At VINCI Energies, this is well understood, as evidenced by the various awards the company has recently received: the X² Genderequivalent Approved Enterprise–quality certificate, the diversity label from the Brussels Capital Region, the Bold Champion Award from Veuve Clicquot for managing director Marc Lemaire and congratulations from sector federation Agoria for its good diversity policy.

Recruiting  more women
Through this year’s second edition of the ‘Women in technology’ campaign, VINCI Energies in Belgium wants to continue pushing for more diversity and specifically more women in the workplace. The campaign includes several initiatives to highlight female employees, and to attract more women in the traditionally rather male sectors in which it operates: industrial automation, energy, transport and communication infrastructure, building technologies, fire protection and facility services.

One such way in which the company is trying to break these stereotypes is by putting a female colleague in the spotlight every month on the group’s job portal. All participants in the ‘Women in technology’ campaigns are furthermore invited to a networking lunch, where a number of keynotes on body language will be organized. In addition, VINCI Energies in Belgium is reviewing the wording of its job openings too, to make them as inclusive as possible.

Last year, despite the corona crisis, we recruited more than 300 new forces, a fifth of them being women. A nice percentage, but one we want to further increase. We need to break existing gender stereotypes and clichés: technology is neutral, and so, everyone is welcome at VINCI Energies: woman, non-binary or man!”, explains Marc Lemaire, managing director at VINCI Energies Belgium.

VINCI Energies in Belgium welcomed 300 new employees in 2021

VINCI Energies in Belgium is active in industrial automation, energy, transport and communication infrastructure, building technology, fire protection and facility services through the brands Actemium, Axians, Cegelec, IZEN, Omexom and VINCI Facilities, as well as through various local brands. Despite the corona crisis, VINCI Energies was again able to recruit hundreds of new employees in Belgium, mainly technicians, project managers, project engineers and software developers. With the 300 new talents, both young graduates and people with experience, VINCI Energies Belgium now employs approximately 2,850 people.

Local embedding
The new employees are 50% French-speaking and 50% Dutch-speaking and will work in one of the 20 branches of the various VINCI Energies brands across the country. “Deploying people in their own region is part of a conscious strategy,” says Marc Lemaire, Managing Director of VINCI Energies in Belgium. “This allows our people to work close to home in a region with which they are familiar, both privately and professionally. Although we are a large group, we remain accessible and have a strong regional presence.”

Women in Technology
About a fifth of the new recruits are women. Under the banner of ‘Women in Technology’, there are several ongoing and planned initiatives to push this figure even higher. For instance, VINCI Energies in Belgium puts a female colleague in the spotlight every month on the group’s job portal. Sector federation Agoria also congratulated them for a good diversity policy and they entered into a partnership with X Kwadraat, which is committed to more gender equality at work. Moreover, Managing Director of VINCI Energies, Marc Lemaire, recently received the Bold Champion Award from Veuve Clicquot. A prize for a man whose concrete actions contribute to better representation and attention to women in society.

Marc Lemaire: “With this year’s new hires, we are perpetuating the group’s growth ambitions, which we are of course very pleased about. However, we never lose sight of our ambitions to make women more prominent in technical professions and sectors.”

Company knowledge and culture
VINCI Energies in Belgium has developed several initiatives and solutions to successfully integrate new employees. Although the ‘Welcome@VINCI Energies Day’ physically could not take place this year, new employees were already digitally introduced to their new colleagues from other departments, as well as to the upper management. In addition, they are given access to an onboarding app that helps them find their way around the company. Even before the first effective day at work, they are coached by more experienced colleagues, which contributes to the passing on of knowledge and the company culture.

Continued growth ambitions
In addition to the new recruitments, VINCI Energies in Belgium currently has about 300 open positions. Eddy Vandersmissen, HR Director of VINCI Energies in Belgium, comments: “In both the recruits and vacancies, we are mainly looking for profiles with a technical background, but we also regularly have open positions for support functions such as finance professionals, hr professionals, management assistants, etc. School leavers, people with a first experience as well as seasoned professionals are welcome. All vacancies can be viewed on the VINCI Energies in Belgium job platform.”

Renewable energy and hydrogen: Combined they lay the foundation for the future energy supply of Europe

There is a huge demand and need for green solutions to meet the climate objectives,” says Gie Verbunt, CEO of IZEN. “Balancing smart, renewable energy with powerful storage and sophisticated consumption is the obvious ambition. We are joining forces with Solenco to lay the foundations of Europe’s future energy supply.”

The combination of hydrogen storage and solar panels ensures that renewable and CO2-free energy is available all year long,” says Hugo Vandenborre, CEO of Solenco. “Together with IZEN, we are initially starting pilot projects in the Benelux. The focus is on residential clusters and the many targeted questions from project developers and corporate buildings.

The PowerboxTM: Heat and electricity
Solenco’s PowerboxTM produces hydrogen locally with power from solar panels and stores it. Via a reversible fuel cell, the PowerboxTM generates heat and electrical energy from the stored hydrogen whenever there is a demand.

Commercial model
IZEN commercialises the energy solutions of Solenco in the Benelux and becomes a one stop shop for total solutions for its customers. From private to large companies. Solenco focuses on the production of the system and the development of its technology.

The cooperation between IZEN and Solenco will in a first phase be supported by a convertible loan of VINCI Energies in Belgium to Solenco.  The loan is convertible on a three year term and is linked to a call option on 100% of the Solenco shares.

After the acquisition of IZEN a few years ago, we definitely want to continue to grow in our ‘Renewable Energies’ division. This cooperation is an example of that“, says Marc Lemaire, Managing Director of VINCI Energies Belgium.

New sustainable building inspired by the VINCI Energies logo accommodates 400 employees

VINCI Energies Belgium opens a brand new regional branch in Gosselies

The new VINCI Energies Belgium building is located a stone’s throw away from the previous site in Gosselies where some of the Group’s brands were already operating. The investment is a logical step to facilitate the further expansion of the various departments and to stimulate cooperation possibilities, which VINCI Energies calls “twinning”. The regional employees of VINCI Facilities, Cegelec and Actemium will move to the new building, as well as the employees of the Nivelles branch.

VINCI Energies Belgium is proud of the final result. Marc Lemaire, Managing Director VINCI Energies Belgium explains: “This ambitious building project is a great new step in the development of our Group and will significantly increase our radius of action and visibility in the region thanks to the various activities carried out from here: projects all over Wallonia, but also in Brussels and even internationally. Every detail was considered in the design. As a result, everyone in our business units who will be working there will be able to do so in ideal circumstances. The icing on the cake is the shape of the building. Passengers arriving or departing from the neighbouring Brussels South Charleroi Airport will immediately notice that we operate here when they see the building through the airplane windows.”

“The presence of VINCI Energies will have several positive consequences in the region. Its research and development activities will make it an economic flagship for our region. The skills of VINCI and the companies in the sector will be crucial for the implementation of the recovery plan and the vast program of buildings energetical renovations planned for the next few years,” explains Thomas Dermine, Secretary of State for Recovery and Strategic Investments.

Sustainability and user comfort

On the 24,000 m2 site, a 6,000 m2 office building and 3,000 m2 warehouse, storeroom and labs will open. In addition, 15,000 m2 is reserved as green space. The focus on sustainability and renewable energy also extends into the building and its surroundings. For example, in addition to solar panels and heat pumps, 28 charging points have been installed for electric vehicles.

The comfort of the users has not been forgotten either. Several smart building systems have been integrated, allowing personalised management for each work zone. The ergonomics of the workstations, relaxation and concentration areas were designed by VINCI Facilities, the VINCI Energies brand that focuses on facility management and technical maintenance of buildings.

Evelien Menu, Space Planner – Interior Architect at VINCI Facilities: “Since we are also part of VINCI Energies Belgium, we know our colleagues’ wishes and needs through and through. We have therefore worked out a customised design. As a result, our colleagues can count on a new location which not only meets all technical, functional and sustainability requirements, but will also be an extremely pleasant place to work in.”

Benoît Gouverneur, Business Development Manager at Cegelec, adds: “If there is one thing to remember about this experience, it’s that it is above all a wonderful human adventure. We had to reconcile different needs, respect a budget and a schedule, and always keep our objectives of sustainability and quality in mind, just as we do for our customers. Therefore we are very proud to have brought all these criteria together in this exemplary building. Hats off to all the players and partners involved in the project!”

 

Twinning

The involvement of the different brands or business units of VINCI Energies Belgium is the common thread in this building project. The design of the building was entrusted to ASSAR Architects and the structural works to BAM Galère, but the remainder of the project was carried out through internal cooperation or twinning. Calling on its own internal competences is a fundamental principle of VINCI Energies. Axians Audiovisual installed the audiovisual solutions, IZEN took care of the solar panels, Omexom arranged the electric charging stations and VINCI Facilities took care of the office layout and will be responsible for the maintenance of the technical installations.

“Last but not least Cegelec, the leading brand in the tertiary installations sector, has realised all the techniques in the building, from HVAC to plumbing, electricity and fire protection,” adds Fabrice Montesi, Managing Director of the Buildings Division. “We designed our installations in order to achieve the best possible balance between the building’s energy production and consumption. We definitely wanted to promote the use of renewable energy, to reduce the environmental impact of our own activities and thus do our bit.”

Marc Lemaire: “This project underlines the multiplicity of expertise domains within our group. This cooperation, or ‘twinning’, between our divisions and departments proves time and again the strength of a multidisciplinary organisation and the efficiency with which we can bring such large, complex projects to a successful conclusion.”

VINCI Energies in Belgium obtains Agoria label ‘Employer ready for the future of work’

The recent study ‘Shaping the future of work’ by technology federation Agoria, shows that by 2030 some 4.5 million employees will need to undergo further training in order to retain their jobs in the long term. Without measures, some 541,000 vacancies will remain unfilled by then. That is why Agoria created the ‘Be The Change’ charter, which is intended to provide companies with a handhold and prospects but also commitments for the coming years. Companies that subscribe to the charter and demonstrate that they can adapt their personnel policy to the challenges of tomorrow’s labor market are rewarded with the ‘Employer ready for the future of work’ label.

 

Bright future

VINCI Energies in Belgium made this commitment in 2020 and now receives the label. “The Agoria study shows that by 2030, not only many positions will disappear, but also new competencies will be needed to fill new positions,” says Marc Lemaire, Managing Director of VINCI Energies in Belgium. “This will also mean that many profiles will have to retrain or upskill themselves. For us, this is the core of our participation. With this label, we demonstrate that VINCI Energies has a plan and has taken actions to continue to offer our people a bright future through training, among other things and to be able to present new employees with a long-term vision.”

 

Raising awareness and diversity

In the ‘Be The Change’ charter, Agoria puts forward ten commitments of which the participating companies have to choose three in order to better align their HR policies with the labour market of the future. VINCI Energies, however, selected four of these and demonstrated over the past year that these commitments were effectively achieved.

 

“Two commitments are aimed at getting young people excited about technical professions and raising awareness about how they can contribute to the world of tomorrow together with us. Through company visits and internships, they discover the diversity of our activities and sectors. All too often, the idea prevails that technical professions are reserved for boys, but that’s not the case”, says Eddy Vandersmissen, HR Director at VINCI Energies in Belgium.

 

 

Training and development

The two other commitments focus on training and development. For VINCI Energies, it is not only important to attract qualified people, but also to develop and train its employees throughout their careers. “We do this by offering training programs and investing in continuing education. The latter also corresponds to one of our values: responsibility. Indeed, as an employer, we believe it is important to be co-responsible for the continued employability of our employees with whom we have made a commitment,” Eddy Vandersmissen said.

 

Responsibility

VINCI Energies extends this responsibility to its role as a major source of employment in the labor market. “We employ more than 2,700 people in Belgium and have more than 200 vacancies permanently. VINCI Energies is aware of its responsibility as an employer and wants to develop solutions by 2030 to guarantee the best possible employment in line with the needs of the evolving labor market. The commitments we have made in the context of the ‘Employer ready for the future of work’ label will continue to be of paramount importance in the future,” concludes Marc Lemaire.

VINCI Energies Belgium acquires Legendre Conveyors

The Legendre family has already been active in the conveying systems sector for seventy years. Today, the family business employs 28 people on its site in Groot-Bijgaarden and carries out projects in more than twenty countries. Legendre specialises in the development of new production lines and the adaptation or upgrading of existing production lines, mainly for the beverage industry. The company counts leading names in the beverage sector among its customers

With this acquisition, VINCI Energies Belgium confirms its strong position as an integrator in the dairy industry and now also expands its expertise in the brewing and soft drinks sector.

Complementary
Legendre’s competences complement the activities of VINCI Energies Belgium in two areas. On the one hand, they allow for an expansion of the mechanical and machine range. On the other hand, the takeover strengthens the ‘end of line’ offer.

Marc Lemaire, Managing Director of VINCI Energies Belgium elaborates on this new step: “With our Actemium Business Units and the 2018 acquisition of AVT, which specialises in heavy load transport, mechanical engineering, robot and custom integration projects, we have developed a complete range for the automation of processes and packaging lines in recent years. With the acquisition of Legendre, we are taking further steps in the development of our logistics offering. The potential is huge. With VINCI Energies Belgium, we strongly believe in the cross-fertilisation between our different brands of which Legendre is now a part.”

Luc Clabout, Managing Director of the Industry & Software Solutions division of VINCI Energies Belgium, is similarly enthusiastic about this takeover: “The acquisition of Legendre fits in our strategy to offer the beverage industry a one-stop-shop range that combines our mechanical, electrical, automation and industrial IT skills with a thorough knowledge of production and business processes. Legendre’s motto: “We convey – you relax” reflects the same vision: a customer-oriented approach with extensive expertise in end-of-line.”


Perspectives for the future
Legendre Conveyors looks positively to the future. After the takeover by VINCI Energies Belgium, the company will continue to exist as an autonomous Business Unit and will retain its current site in Groot-Bijgaarden. Olivier Legendre, together with his brother Mathieu, will lead this new Business Unit within the Industry & Software Solutions division of VINCI Energies Belgium. Olivier Legendre: “Under the wings of a major player such as VINCI Energies, we are jointly writing a new chapter for our company with a long-standing tradition. The expertise we can demonstrate together will undoubtedly strengthen our position.”

“This acquisition aligns fully with our growth strategy,” adds Marc Lemaire. “We are always looking for synergies with our existing activities. This complementarity allows us to profile ourselves more than ever as a unique partner towards our customers, in this case mainly in the beverage industry”.

VINCI Energies Belgium organises first edition of VINCI Environment Day

The VINCI group, of which VINCI Energies Belgium is part has defined a clear ambition and strategy around environmental priorities. These will take center stage during the very first VINCI Environment Day on the 22 of September. On this day VINCI Energies Belgium’s 2,750 strong workforce, spread out over 60 business units and 15 brands, will be submerged in the group’s vision on durability through interactive sessions, workshops and keynotes. The day will also focus on the further development of sustainability and the ‘Green offering’ of VINCI Energies Belgium, a collection of sustainable solutions the group continues to develop.

 Marc Lemaire, Managing Director of VINCI Energies Belgium is enthusiastic about the organisation of this day: “By involving all VINCI Energies Belgium’s employees in the VINCI’s  sustainability ambitions, we ensure they play an important role in our climate transition. By detecting, stimulating and implementing initiatives of our employees, we ensure a future where our business operations remain relevant and above all, sustainable in the long term. The fact that we devote an entire day to this underlines our commitment and ambition in achieving the VINCI environmental priorities”.

 

Climate ambitions

During the VINCI Environment Day, all topics will be part of at least one of VINCI’s three climate ambitions. First, there is the attention on climate transition with the aims to reduce direct or indirect CO₂ emissions and the sustainability of infrastructure, cities and regions. The target is to achieve a 40% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 and to become fully carbon neutral by 2050. The second ambition revolves around the circular economy with a focus on the analysis and reuse of waste. The aim is to maximise the use of recycled materials and reduce the consumption of raw materials. Finally, in the category of the environment, VINCI focuses on the protection of biodiversity and the quality of air, water and soil.

Bart Artois, Director Corporate Social Responsibilities & HSEQ of VINCI Energies Belgium: “With VINCI Energies Belgium, we already have a promising series of ongoing projects that fit these ambitions in our ‘Green offering’. Developing these ideas further will not only help our own sustainable development and carbon reduction, but also that of our partners and customers”.

 

VINCI Environment Awards

One of the initiatives that are being rolled out during the Environment Day is the kickoff of the VINCI Environment Awards. For this competition, VINCI calls upon all 220,000 employees worldwide to put forward ideas that contribute to the group’s sustainability objectives. After voting rounds by the employees themselves and deliberation by a specialised jury, the best ideas will be awarded a VINCI Environment Award in the course of 2021.
