VINCI Energies has just acquired two subsidiaries of the Andalusian company Grupo Solar Lighting, SISTEM Melesur Energía and SISTEM Infraestructuras y Operaciones EPC. With this dual acquisition, VINCI Energies becomes a major player in the market for electricity generation, transmission, transformation and distribution services in Spain (including renewables), where it operates under its Omexom brand.
SISTEM Melesur Energía and SISTEM Infraestructuras y Operaciones EPC deliver engineering, installation and maintenance services for high, medium and low voltage transformer stations and power lines. They also monitor work in real time via a supervision centre, to ensure traceability and transparency for customers.
These acquisitions broaden VINCI Energies’ customer base in Spain in both large public services and the small and medium-sized enterprise sector.
Laurent Clech, Managing Director of VINCI Energies in Spain, said, “We welcome these acquisitions. In recent years, SISTEM has become a benchmark provider of electricity grid and substation engineering, installation and maintenance. These acquisitions will give our customers the benefit of our enhanced capabilities in these fields and our coverage of the entire country. Moreover, the SISTEM and VINCI Energies ranges of solutions and services form an excellent fit that will enable us to support our customers as they digitalise their grids.”
With this new expansion, VINCI Energies will generate annual revenue in Spain of nearly €430 million and employ more than 3,500 people.
