SPIE, a reference on Belgian renewable energy market
Brussels, 23 June 2020 – SPIE Group, the independent European leader in multi-technical services in the areas of energy and communications and a key player on the European renewable energy market, generated €50 million from direct operations and €268 million from indirect operations in 2019 to record a total turnover of €318 million. In 2020, SPIE Belgium has already worked on five major wind farms throughout the country.
The wind energy experts at Industry Aalter, part of SPIE Belgium, are well established in the Belgian renewable energy sector. The market’s main players recognise the division’s proficient use of high and low voltage technology, specialised cabling expertise and long-term relationships with grid managers.

Since the turn of the year, Industry Aalter has won five contracts nationwide:

Our strongest assets are the multi-technical solutions and services that we can provide to our customers in this specific sector and the expertise that our high voltage specialists possess.”
