Transportation and logistics
Bolloré Energy is a key player in oil distribution and oil logistics in France, Switzerland and Germany.
Despite the Covid-19 crisis and successive lockdowns, operations never stopped. Thanks to the strong involvement of the teams in strict compliance with health rules, Bolloré Energy has been able to fulfill its mission as a service essential to the functioning of the countries in which it operates.
In France, Bolloré Energy wholly owns depots in Caen, Strasbourg, Mulhouse, Gerzat and Chasseneuil-du-Poitou. It has stakes in the following depot-owning companies: DPL-Lorient (20%), SDLP-La Rochelle (18%), DPSPC-Tours (20%), EPV-Valenciennes (16%) and EPMMulhouse (14%). It is also an equal shareholder, alongside Total and Esso, in the leading operator of petroleum products depots in France, Raffinerie du Midi (33.33%). Bolloré Energy is also the majority shareholder in DRPC (Dépôt Rouen Petit-Couronne), in operation since 2018.
Bolloré Energy also holds 95% of Société Française Donges-Metz (SFDM), which holds an operating agreement for the 640-kilometer Donges-Melun-Metz (DMM) pipeline and four depots located in Donges, La Ferté-Alais, Vatry and Saint-Baussant, with total storage capacity of 900,000 m3.
In Switzerland, Bolloré Energy is the reference shareholder of the depot companies TAR-Zurich and Sasma-Genève, which respectively supply the international airports of Zurich and Geneva, and also holds stakes in several other depots, for a total storage capacity of 360,000 m3.
Distribution of oil products
Leader in the independent distribution of petroleum products in France, Bolloré Energy offers its private and professional customers domestic fuel, diesel and non-road diesel fuel.
It has a network of more than 125 branch offices and secondary depots.
Retail distribution represents 1 million m3 per year. It caters to households, farmers, buildings and public administrations in France. Bolloré Energy also offers its customers advisory and technical services related to fuel oïl and gas heating, including the installation, maintenance and trouble-shooting of boilers.
Bolloré Energy also operates a network of 75 service stations, including 57 in Germany under the Calpam trademark.
While defending the position of domestic heating oil in the French energy mix, Bolloré Energy is committed to the energy transition. Since 2018, Bolloré Energy has diversified its product range to offer its customers cleaner alternatives. After the launch of the Gomeco additive in 2018, which enables diesel consumption savings, Bolloré Energy became the first independent distributor to offer bio-fuel in France in 2019. This product reduces CO2 emissions into the atmosphere by incorporating 5% plant matter (canola) at this stage.
