Engineering and construction business


Abengoa is experiencing excellent times in the area of Engineering and Construction (E&C). It is the international leader in the construction of electrical infrastructures, transmission lines, solar and power plants, according to the ranking published by the prestigious specialist ENR (Engineering News-Record). While the international crisis is abating, specifically in the construction sector, Abengoa joins the group of companies spearheading the business worldwide. The company has achieved excellent results in the area of E&C, €4,882 M in order intake and €6,796 M in the backlog, making up more than half of Abengoa’s turnover.



The company has E&C projects in more than forty countries spanning five continents. With the general stagnation of the European market, and the Spanish market in particular, Abengoa continues with its progressive and unceasing internationalization process, mainly in the Americas, Asia and Africa. In particular, the US, China and India are expected to see the most growth, which will make these countries the leading world markets over the next decade.

Abengoa continues growing in the US, which is its main strategic market, where it occupies 7th place as international contractor, according to the ENR. The region of Latin America and the Caribbean, where it occupies 5th place, remains a key objective for the company. The Americas amounts to 50 % of the company’s business. In addition, Abengoa secured its position in Africa where it has consolidated itself as a benchmark transmission and distribution contractor.

Since its beginnings, Abengoa has constructed over 45,000 km of transmission lines, equal to three times the earth’s diameter. It has developed projects on all continents in countries such as Brazil, Algeria, Australia, France, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Spain and Morocco, and with the securing of new projects in the US and Ukraine in the course of 2013, the list continues to grow.

The multinational also knows how to capitalize on the growing international interest for renewable energies. Many countries have undertaken medium and long-term plans to build clean energy plants. Abengoa is well placed to compete and offer solutions adapted to their needs.

These exciting times for the company translate into the identified opportunities for the coming years. Abengoa boasts a diverse and extensive portfolio of international clients who rely on the multinational’s experience to carry out their engineering and construction projects, and it manages its own assets. The awarding of new projects in turn becomes a port of entry into strategic markets where the company previously had no presence.

Abengoa collaborates in the development of corporations where it operates, promoting global sustainable growth. Emerging and developing countries require infrastructures for their continued growth. Electricity, water, transportation and fuels are key elements for growth. Abengoa is a global company that works on a local level, contracting local workers and vendors, implementing social projects for favorable social integration and equal opportunities and creating environmental programs to minimize the negative impact of executed works and the emission of greenhouse gases.

The individuals of the Abengoa team are essential to achieving the company’s strategic objectives. Talent acquisition, continuous training and performance appraisal are just some elements of the company’s human resource strategy, where the number of jobs created in E&C continues to rise in locations such as North America, showing a 31 % increase over 2012, and Africa, with a 57 % increase in recruitments.

The company invests in its own technological development for its implementation in the design of new projects. The knowledge gained from operating these projects has a knock-on effect on innovation, favoring the development of more and better technology. This serves to generate a process of continuous improvement in R&D and innovation, which is one of the company’s greatest competitive advantages.
