French firm Bouygues Energies & Services will soon call the Greenwich Peninsula home.

The site's Digital Enterprise Greenwich hub, set up by Greenwich Council, attracted the global engineering and service capabilities company with its opportunities for collaboration, innovation and efficient use of digital technology.

It currently employs 54,000 people across 60 countries

Ed Peeke, MD of Bouygues E&S infrastructure, said: "We have been impressed by the entrepreneurial approach of Greenwich Council, and their own innovation.

"By bringing the different players that shape the future of the city, together with technology companies and innovators they are doing something very special.

"We want to be part of that."

Council leader Denise Hyland said: "This is an excellent opportunity for local businesses to collaborate with a global player - and we're delighted that a name like Bouygues will join the likes of Cisco and our other entrepreneurs at Greenwich Peninsula in all they're achieving in terms of digital innovation."
