Rubis expands its photovoltaic offering

with the acquisition of Mobexi’s ASSETS by Photosol



Following the acquisition of 80% of Photosol in April 2022 and the creation of a Renewable division, Rubis has become one of the leading photovoltaic energy producers in France, specialised in large-scale ground-mounted power plants of photovoltaic panels of more than 3 ha and over 3 MWp with the aim of enlarging its activity.

In this perspective, Rubis announces the acquisition of Mobexi’s assets, a French specialist in rooftop panels, and the integration of its team of 20 employees. The Group commits €2 million to take over the assets that should generate revenues of around €6 million over 2023, corresponding to 5 MWp of rooftop installations. In the mid-term, the objective is to increase the annual installations to 25 MWp, optimising sourcing and operation & maintenance (O&M) thanks to Photosol expertise and leveraging on the Group’s client base and presence worldwide.

While the French Senate has just passed a new regulation encouraging industrial and commercial companies to cover their car parks of more than 80 places with solar panels, this acquisition allows Rubis, through Photosol, to broaden its offer and to quickly respond to the needs of deploying energy solutions of smaller size for companies, farmers, and communities.

Rubis is thus strengthening its position and establishing itself as a reference player for all types of photovoltaic installations from 0.1 MWp to 3 MWp on new buildings, existing roofs, or car parks, right up to large-scale ground-mounted plants of over 3 MWp.
