CORPORATE STRATEGY

OUR LONG-TERM VISION

Although energy is now produced all over the world, it still needs to grow to meet an steadily increasing demand. Although the energy mix issues still remain extremely controversial, communities, industrial companies and energy producers must rethink their operations processes as well as their way of using energy in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, pollution and the associated impacts on public health.

Beyond these needs, we are convinced that access to electricity in deprived areas is an essential factor of social progress and economic development on a world scale.

Our strategy is clear: to support the transition towards more sustainable energy consumption and production systems around the world. We aim at manufacturing equipments that are more environmentally friendly, safe and efficient. Thus, we promote a social responsible business model.

DREKAN-GROUP HISTORY

15 YEARS OF EXPERTISE, WILLPOWER AND PASSION

The history of the Drekan group began long before Drekan, in 2006, when the group’s first company dedicated to wind turbine maintenance was created. This company was sold in 2009 to its minority shareholders. Drekan as we know it today was born 3 years later with the objective of offering electromechanical maintenance services in a more diversified manner than in the wind sector.

2020

In 2020, despite the Covid-19 crisis, Drekan-Group continued to grow and acquired the company EMG-EMCO, specialized in the manufacturing of converters and exciter groups for synchronous machines. The end of the year was also marked by the acquisition of the Inventis SAS engineering firm specialized in the engineering of high-power rotating machines.

The year 2019 was marked by the acquisition of the NLMK facility in Beautor. The old cold rolling mill that has 32.000m2 workshop and 800m2 office spaces, is located on a 24 hectares site. It also has a railway connection and a private river-port. The entire site was bought to install the heavy weight workshops of Drekan E.P.C.S. as well as the head office of the Drekan Group.
