Technip Energies, an engineering and technology company for the energy industry and its transition, and NIPIGAS, a Russian engineering, procurement and construction management company, have announced their intention to create NOVA ENERGIES, a joint venture (JV) to drive the energy transition journey in Russia. The heads of terms agreement defining the path forward was signed today by Arnaud Pieton, Chief Executive Officer of Technip Energies and Dmitry Evstafiev, Chief Executive Officer of NIPIGAS.
This new JV will provide a wide range of expertise, including engineering and design, project documentation and CAPEX estimates (FEED/PD) as well as engineering, procurement, construction, installation, and commissioning (EPC/EPCm) for CO2 removal, carbon capture, clean H2 production, bio energies, bio refineries, bio chemistry, ammonia, as well as other energy transition related themes.
NOVA ENERGIES will be a full-fledged independent player on the Russian market for the long-term period. The JV will include Technip Energies and NIPIGAS personnel, who will bring their respective areas of expertise and support, with the aim of becoming the ‘best in class’ engineering and technology company for the energy transition in Russia.
Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies, stated: “Technip Energies leverages vast experience and expertise developed over six decades of working on the transformation of traditional energies. Smart Engineering is needed to break boundaries and accelerate the journey to a low-carbon society. By combining our efforts and know-how with NIPIGAS, we will enable our clients in Russia to reach their energy transition targets. Through this joint-venture, Technip Energies will reinforce its energy transition positioning, leveraging its engineering expertise and technologies in hydrogen, sustainable chemistry, CO2 management and carbon-free solutions to build a better tomorrow.”
Dmitry Evstafiev, CEO, NIPIGAS, declared: “The general global trend for decarbonisation has become one of the key factors in the modernisation of existing and creation of new industries in Russia. With the participation of NIPIGAS, the best environmentally friendly and safe design solutions are implemented, corresponding to the best world standards within the framework of the country's largest projects. We want to strengthen our technological leadership to continue to offer customers solutions through our joint venture with Technip Energies that meet the requirements of tomorrow, looking for opportunities to expand and deepen this practice. Therefore, partnership with the world leader in the field of new energy, the so-called ‘energy transition’ is of course, extremely important for us and in many ways a strategic direction.”
