Veolia strengthens its energy consulting offer with the acquisition of MRC Consultants & Transaction Advisers by Seureca

Veolia, through Seureca, its Consulting Engineering and Strategic and Operational Assistance division, announces the acquisition of MRC Consultants and Transaction Advisers. MRC is an energy consulting firm, based in Spain and the United Kingdom and active in over 30 countries.

This acquisition aligns perfectly with Veolia's new 2024-2027 "GreenUp" strategic program, which aims to accelerate ecological transformation. It strengthens the energy component of Seureca's business and is fully in line with the Group's objectives in terms of decarbonized energy and energy autonomy for both itself and its customers.

In addition to the solutions already mastered at Seureca in terms of water, energy and waste management, MRC brings unique expertise in energy strategies, including decarbonization, planning and design of energy systems, and projects structuring and financing, to meet the challenges of autonomy and energy sobriety of its clients at the national and international scale. The MRC team includes energy engineers, economists, legal experts and data analysts.

In total, Seureca's energy division will have a workforce of over 70, and this new offering will cover energy efficiency, renewables, smart grids, energy storage, e-mobility and energy local loops.

"This acquisition is an important step in Seureca's development, as it strengthens our energy services and commitment to ecological transformation. Seureca is now an international key player in providing support and consulting services on energy issues for cities and industries." - Philippe Bloch, Managing Director of the Consulting Engineering Division Seureca.

"We are very proud to join the Veolia group's consulting engineering division and to bring our expertise in energy consulting and decarbonization. This acquisition propels our company into a new dimension on the world stage." - Arnaldo Orlandini, CEO of MRC Consultants and Transaction Advisers.
