“My mission is to give continuity to the fantastic work Daniel Develay has been doing along with our more than 4,500 experts to position Tractebel as a global leading engineering and consulting company in energy, water and urban infrastructures. Besides Tractebel’s important consolidating businesses, we will continue to focus on consultancy, decentralised and digital solutions to anticipate the trends of this fast-changing world we are living in, and to optimize the solutions for our clients and stakeholders,” said Olivier Biancarelli.
