Context of the opportunity

John Cockerill is today acting as an OEM for either EPC contractors or Utilities companies. We deliver boilers adapted to gas turbines, industrial boilers, solar receivers for solar concentration power plant. We are present on all continents and sell on a worldwide basis.
