The high technical capacity, innovative management systems and the quality of projects run by Spanish infrastructure companies, have made it possible for them to consolidate their presence in foreign markets and leadership, both in the development and execution of contracts for civil works, industrial and building construction, as well as in the management of infrastructure under concession and related water technology.
The SEOPAN companies manage projects in a holistic manner -including design, execution, financing, operation and maintenance, which allows them to successfully meet the challenges posed by extra-budgetary infrastructure funding systems. In addition, they have demonstrated their ability to manage and adapt to local production factors, establish alliances and agreements with associates from different countries and to set up a wide base of competitive Spanish subcontractors and suppliers.
Finally, we are talking about a very diverse group with regard to other sectors such as environmental services, integrated building management, the airport sector, the integrated water cycle and renewable energy, attaining excellent figures in their business portfolios, which in many cases exceed the construction activities. This feature enables them to manage the entire infrastructure life cycle more efficiently, generating the necessary confidence in financial investors and public authorities to raise funds from the capital markets to finance the projects.
These exceptional technical and management capabilities have allowed the Spanish infrastructure industry to lead large and innovative international projects that are recognised as benchmarks in the world of civil engineering.
The international activity of Spanish groups and infrastructure companies has once again placed them in top positions internationally in terms of construction turnover, according to the trade publication Engineering News Record (ENR), as well as in the management of transport infrastructure as published in the latest Public Works Financing (PWF) magazine rankings.
