ENGIE x DSM Nutritional Products - SUISSE


Comment fournir une solution énergétique moderne, écologique et “as-a-service” au plus grand fabricant de vitamines du monde ?

Par BIKILI Ahmed - 28 novembre 2019 - 07:43

A Sisseln, en Suisse, DSM Nutritional Products gère la plus grande usine de vitamine E du monde. Ce type de production nécessite une importante quantité d’énergie, jusqu’alors assurée par une chaudière à combustible fossile, obsolète et fortement génératrice de CO2. Pour permettre à DSM de réduire son empreinte carbone et de s’inscrire dans la stratégie énergétique 2050 de la Suisse, ENGIE s'est associé au fournisseur d'électricité local ewz pour créer une centrale électrique plus propre.

Client Challenges

  • Zero occupational accidents on the site.
  • Efficient production of the products in the desired quantities with high quality.


ENGIE's Solution

To help DSM reduce its carbon footprint, ENGIE teamed up with ewz and implemented its BETTER Energy program. DSM was looking for a modern, “as-a-service” solution, meaning one that is turnkey, tailor made, and co-financed. The result is the new wood biomass power plant, a beacon for sustainable development. The plant runs on locally sourced wood chips (within a 100km radius maximum) and supplies green energy—not only to DSM, but also to Syngenta and Novartis plants as well as to the equivalent of 17,500 local households. Inaugurated in April 2019, the new biomass plant will help DSM to decrease its CO2 emissions by 50,000 tonnes. 

Expertise and Offers 

ENGIE supports the customer by supplying: 

 Energy and process media with very high availability.  

 Comprehensive maintenance of the energy, waste disposal and HVAC systems. 


"Our site in Sisseln, Switzerland is the largest vitamin production plant in the world. Our products are sold globally thanks to our technology, our well-trained employees and the political stability of the country. This sustainable investment makes our site even more attractive thanks to the significant reduction of its carbon footprint—one of DSM's top priorities.”

Christoph Goppelsroeder, President & CEO of DSM Nutritional Products
