Welcome to Velcan Energy’s investor website
Velcan Energy is a listed Independent Company which develops, finances and operates hydro power concessions in emerging markets.
Hydroelectricity has been exploited profitably for more than a hundred years in the developed countries. Emerging markets are now also starting to use significantly this source of cheap reliable power. Hydropower is capital intensive but does not need subsidies to compete with fossil fuel. China has led the way for the other emerging markets as it has installed more than 170 000 MW over the last 20 years, which it plans to increase by 50% over the next five years.
The amount of capital needed has pushed many emerging countries to develop hydro power using concessions under the BOOT (Build Own Operate Transfer) mode.
Velcan Energy has started its operations by working in India and Brazil in 2005. Having been successful in those two countries, the company is now prospecting new emerging markets with significant hydroelectric potential and economic growth potential.
The daily life of the teams often means going to remote places and living an adventurous life. But at a Corporate level, the company is managed in a conservative style with shareholder value in mind.
