The sales agreement with ENI was signed in July 2011 for approximately EUR 157 million ($202m) on an enterprise value basis. The sale to ENI covers all of Vattenfall’s operations in Belgium.

The completion of this sale is another important step in implementing Vattenfall's new strategic direction, focusing on the three core markets Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands as well as on certain strategic projects in other countries.
