INTRODUCING THE COMPANY

 

Listed on the Paris stock market since October 30, 2013, Blue Solutions brings together all of the Bolloré Group’s electricity storage activities.

As it diversifies from its roots in paper and ultrathin plastic-film manufacturing, the Bolloré Group has moved into the production of complete electrical components for capacitors and now controls over one-third of the global market. Building on this expertise and after 20 years of research and development, the Group has successfully introduced batteries and electricity storage solutions uniquely based on Lithium Metal Polymer (LMP®) technology, while also exploring the potential of supercapacitors.

In an era when sustainability and electricity storage have become major concerns for citizens, cities and governments, the Bolloré Group draws on these technologies to deliver solutions for the production, storage and smart consumption of electricity.

Today, Blue Solutions has a team of more than 300 researchers, engineers and technicians who manufacture these innovative batteries at two production sites located in France (Brittany) and Canada. The company’s current annual production capacity is
300 MWh, the equivalent of 10,000 30 kWh batteries. By 2019-2020, it will be raised to almost 1 GWh, corresponding to 33,333 30 kWh batteries.

These batteries are used in mobile applications, such as car sharing and electric vehicles, but also in stationary applications, including electricity storage for individuals, companies and local authorities, all developed and marketed by other Group entities brought together within Blue Applications, whose offerings have seen rapid growth on every continent since 2011.

Together, Blue Solutions and Blue Applications benefit from their unique position as an integrator, providing both batteries and complete solutions for meeting the new challenges of energy transition.
