Juan Lladó emphasized that the company has won five strategic awards in recent months, totaling some 2,100 million euros: Sasa in Turkey, Orlen in Poland, Gazpromneft in Russia, Global Industrial Dynamics in the Netherlands and the extension of the Tuban project with Pertamina and Rosneft in Indonesia.

A pipeline of 50 billion euros

In turn, the company’s pipeline of identified and concrete opportunities, i.e. projects already tendered or in the tendering process, currently amounts to 50 billion euros.

Of these, more than 30 billion euros consist of plants for the generation of clean fuels and petrochemical developments; some 18 billion euros in natural gas treatment projects, which is essential as a transition product to achieve the objectives of decarbonization; and the remaining almost 3 billion euros “correspond to projects framed in the pure energy transition: hydrogen, biofuels, CO2 capture…”. Real projects, with a present and a future of which we are already part because we are obtaining important awards in this field”.

An important “drag effect” on the Spanish business fabric

The Chairman of Técnicas Reunidas stressed that an essential factor underpinning the company’s high competitiveness in international markets is the proven capacity and great talent of the “more than 7,500 professionals in the company, undergoing continuous training, who design, manage, purchase and ensure that the construction of our plants is carried out in accordance with our design, our quality and with the highest safety requirements”.

In particular, he emphasized that Técnicas Reunidas is a center of excellence in technology, engineering and training in Spain, from where projects are developed for the world’s leading energy companies, among which those dedicated to decarbonization and energy transition have a growing weight; and it is also an important gateway to the labor market, as 72% of the more than 700 graduates who have obtained scholarships from the company in the last five years have ended up joining it.

Juan Lladó closed his speech by expressly mentioning Técnicas Reunidas’ commitment to the Spanish business fabric, since “if we manage our purchases from here, from Spain, it is logical that we also choose the closest suppliers, those we trust the most; in other words, Spanish suppliers”.

As a result, the company’s “drag effect”, i.e., its purchases from other Spanish companies represent an average of more than 700 million euros a year in exports and supplies.
