Paper: GDF Suez to Sell 30% Stake in its Australia Business


PARIS, June 6 (Reuters) – French gas and power group GDF Suez is looking to sell a further 30 percent stake in its Australian power generation and retail business, the Wall Street Journal reported.

In October, GDF sold a 28 percent stake in the business to Japan's Mitsui but did not provide financial details.

The assets involved are a 1,542 megawatt coal-fired power station, two gas-fired plants, a wind farm with a combined capacity of 2,463 megawatts and retail business Simply Energy with some 350,000 electricity and gas accounts.

The company was not immediately available for comment.
