Zhendre, Eiffage Énergie Systèmes’ expertise brand and container-based solutions specialist

Energy Division

This new speciality is Eiffage Énergie Systèmes’ 14th expertise brand, and has its origins in a family business which joined our Branch in 2020. The teams have specialized in building reefer containers since the company was created in 1955 in Villenave-d’Ornon, near Bordeaux. Today the brand is active on the international scene, manufacturing container-based solutions, mobile air-conditioners and industrial grade cold rooms.  

Zhendre offers a range of container-based products made to measure by 50 partners specializing in a number of trades: boilermaking, insulation, HVAC, electricity, piping, paint, and the integration of specific elements.  

Zhendre’s container-integrated solutions are both robust and easy to maintain. Of varying sizes and capacities, they are designed to meet refrigeration, energy and storage requirements. They can also be used as workshops or a base for operations.  

Zhendre’s experts also produce mobile air-conditioners and air-conditioners for shelters designed to regulate or maintain temperatures in highly strategic technical and IT facilities (radars, electronic appliances) or for deployment to military or humanitarian camps with a variety of human support uses such as dormitories, canteens, storage, infirmaries or field hospitals, and maintenance hangars.  

Zhendre’s range of solutions is completed by the manufacturing of mobile cold rooms and removable cold room kits. They are mainly used in the world’s remotest places, to preserve foodstuffs and vaccines (COVID-19, Ebola, polio, etc.) 

With its integrated design and engineering department comprising engineers and technicians in mechanical, thermal and electromechanical engineering, Zhendre is able to adjust to customer constraints by designing products which meet their various requirements.  

Zhendre’s solutions are exported to over 100 countries throughout the world, and are chiefly aimed at three activity sectors: defence (Zhendre works for the French armed forces, the European armies, a number of peacekeeping missions and the Thales Group) humanitarian action (UNICEF, Médecins sans frontières (Doctors without Borders) the Red Cross, etc.) and industry (Airbus, BASF, Andritz, Powidian, EDF etc.). Zhendre makes 95 % of its purchases in Europe (75% in France, 10% in Italy and 10% in Germany). The solutions offered are designed to withstand the most extreme weather conditions, from -32 °C to + 70 °C. They are tested in a climatic test chamber in the Nouvelle Aquitaine region of France..   

Zhendre does not stop at designing and manufacturing the products mentioned above. Its activities include the operational implementation of containers in the field (with the help of a network of installers) from the boundaries of the Sahel to the Poles.
