Partners in the GRHYD project inaugurate France’s first Power-to-Gas demonstrator
Monday, June 11, 2018. Patrice Vergriete (Mayor of Dunkirk and President of the Dunkirk Urban Community), Léon Devloies (Mayor of Cappelle-la-Grande and Vice President of the Dunkirk Urban Community), Isabelle Kocher (Chief Executive Officer of ENGIE) and Fabrice Boissier (Managing Director of ADEME) have inaugurated in Cappelle-la-Grande (Nord department) the first Power-to-Gas demonstrator in France, in the presence of the partners involved in the project.

A unique new-generation OCS in southwestern France
A new milestone has been reached in the extensive overhead catenary system renovation project undertaken by ENGIE Ineo, agent of a consortium with Colas Rail, since the end of 2016 on the Toulouse to Bayonne railway. A second section of the new generation OCS* installed since September 2017 has now been activated by SNCF Réseau. Deployed for the first time on a line of this importance, this new technology, capable of withstanding a much stronger electric current, meets the requirements of the French government’s objectives concerning the restoration and modernisation of the country’s existing transportation network.
