Rational energy management in the Europa building

09 June 2020

EQUANS is in charge of the technical maintenance and energy management of the new headquarters of the Council of the European Union.

Ensuring that the technical installations function perfectly and make rational use of energy. Offering a pleasant environment to building users. This is the raison d’être of the EQUANS teams in the services sector. And when it comes to the management of a sustainable and highly secure construction such as the Europa, our staff do their utmost to ensure that the infrastructure offers the best level of service, in all circumstances, including on the occasion of European summits.

Sustainable facilities

The distinctive feature of the Europa building is not only its cube-shaped architecture, nestled in the heart of Brussels, but also its sustainable approach, which is notably based on the use of solar panels, heat pumps, a cogeneration system and a rainwater recovery system to supply the sanitary facilities and the green walls, which we also manage.

Technical and energy management

As a privileged partner of the European Council, our teams have been managing the operation and maintenance of this emblematic venue since its completion in 2017. It now hosts European Union and multilateral summits as well as ministerial sessions. This contract is in addition to the one we already held for the adjacent building, Justus Lipsius, which houses the press centre and the services of the General Secretariat of the Council. In total, more than 60 EQUANS employees are deployed across the two buildings. All technical facilities are supervised by our operators 24 hours a day.

Effective performance management

Electricity, HVAC, sanitary facilities, maintenance of kitchen facilities… In the Europa building, one of the most hyper-modern, automated buildings in Brussels, our teams’ work is far-reaching and complex. In this cube of almost 71,000 m², with 250 offices, 6 conference and dining rooms as well as 3,750 windows, there are numerous control systems. Whether for lighting, sunlight, humidity or temperature, the challenge is to ensure the comfort of the building’s occupants, while also ensuring precise monitoring of the installations in order to constantly optimise energy performance.
