The company is a joint venture of the French energy group EDF and the Dutch energy company PZEM. Sloe Centrale BV is triple certified according to the most updated QHSE standards (ISO).

Market outlook

After a decade of commercial operation, Sloe Centrale is well recognized as being a reliable, safe and efficient plant operator. Nevertheless, the European energy market is facing structural changes and the predictability of its evolution, depending on various criteria, remains a challenge. To cope with this challenge and maintain a front position in the CCGT merit order, Sloe Centrale will invest the coming years in several technical optimizations of the plant, related to response and flexibility.
