Infrastructures

The growing demand for energy and mobility has led clients and local authorities to scale their power generation, transmission and distribution equipment to fit their needs. The same is true for transport infrastructure.

Industry

Optimising production processes and energy consumption are two key factors that can give industrial companies a competitive edge. This provides them with energy efficiency, reliability, the modernisation of their production facilities, etc. VINCI Energies supports its industrial customers throughout the world with engineering, implementation and maintenance services.

Service Sector

Design, construction, thermal renovation, operation of technical equipment, maintenance and facility management: VINCI Energies provides global solutions to help customers benefit from less costly, more comfortable and safer buildings, integrating the regulatory requirements and the latest technical progress in smart buildings.

ICT

4G networks, fibre optics, cell phone coverage, cloud and more. Responding to the growth in demand for high-performance telecommunications infrastructure and services coming from private individuals, companies and local authorities is decisive if we want to meet one of society's greatest challenges: the digital transformation.

VINCI Energies’ competitive position

France

VINCI Energies is the leader in a fragmented market in which the top six players account for only around 50% of the total.
Its main competitors are Engie Energie Services, Spie, Eiffage Énergie and Bouygues Energies & Services.

Europe

VINCI Energies is a leading electrical engineering and installation company in six countries: Germany, where it has a strong position (almost €2 billion revenue in 2016), Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Portugal and Romania.
Its main competitors are:
- in Germany, Siemens in electrical installation and Spie in the infrastructure services market, Bilfinger and ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions in insulation, Minimax in fire protection;
- in Switzerland, Burkhalter and Alpiq in electrical installation and telecommunications;
- in the Benelux countries: Engie Energie Services.
In the information and communication technologies sector, VINCI Energies operates in Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, United Kingdom, Belgium and Austria.

Outside Europe

VINCI Energies operates in Africa, where it is market leader in Morocco. It also operates in the Middle East, Asia and South America. Through its subsidiaries Electrix and J&P Richardson (acquired in February 2016), VINCI Energies has a solid foothold in New Zealand and Australia. By acquiring Orteng in 2015, VINCI Energies gained a leading role in Brazil’s industry and energy infrastructure sectors.

Revenue held steady at VINCI Energies thanks to acquisitions, confirming its resilience, which is based on its diverse expertise, broad geographical coverage and performance-boosting managerial model.

Perspectives

VINCI Energies’ year-end order books point to stable revenue in 2017 on a comparable structure basis. However, acquisitions, mainly outside France, could accelerate VINCI Energies’ expansion, since consolidation of the sector has still made relatively little progress. In this context, VINCI Energies’ strong ability to integrate new business units and involve them in its managerial momentum will foster sustainable growth.

VINCI Energies will also grow as a result of its ongoing efforts to expand its solutions and services, which are geared to its customers’ needs. This momentum, supported by the group’s agile networking culture, will go hand in hand with stepped-up synergies between VINCI Energies’ operating teams and experts and with its accelerated innovation policy involving partnerships with the many stakeholders that make up its ecosystem. The Inerbiz fund’s investments in innovative startups will help drive this process.

In the near term and to a greater extent in the long term, all VINCI Energies business sectors will benefit from the digital revolution, which will accelerate the transformation of infrastructure, industrial processes and buildings and affect both their equipment and the way it is used. The expansion of the Axians brand, dedicated to information and communication technologies, is part of the move to all-digital that will more broadly shape all VINCI Energies solutions and services. Meanwhile, the energy transition will make it necessary to reconfigure energy infrastructure and carry out broad-scale thermal renovation of buildings. All these shifts will call for massive investments that will generate long-term activity for VINCI Energies business units.
