Making digital transformation and the energy transition a reality
In a world undergoing constant change, VINCI Energies is leveraging connections, performance, energy efficiency and data to fast-track the rollout of new technologies and thereby support two major shifts: digital transformation and the energy transition. With their strong regional roots and agile organisational structure, VINCI Energies business units are boosting the reliability, safety and efficiency of energy, transport and communication infrastructure, industrial facilities and other buildings.
2018 Key figures
53 countries, 31 of them outside Europe
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.
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.
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.
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
VINCI Energies is the leader in a fragmented market in which the top six players account for only around 50% of the market. Its main competitors are Engie Energie Services, Spie, Eiffage Énergie, Bouygues Energies & Services and Snef.
VINCI Energies is a leading electrical engineering and installation company. It ranks among the top players in Germany, where it has a strong position (revenue of €2 billion in 2018), Switzerland, Scandinavia (Sweden, Finland and Norway), Belgium, Netherlands, Portugal and Romania. In the information and communication technologies sector, VINCI Energies operates mainly in France, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Sweden, United Kingdom, Belgium and Austria.
VINCI Energies operates in Africa, where it is market leader in Morocco. It also operates in the Middle East, Asia and South America. VINCI Energies has a solid foothold in New Zealand and Australia. With the acquisition of PrimeLine Utility Services, VINCI Energies established a significant position in services for energy infrastructure and telecommunications operators in North America at the beginning of 2018.
Revenue is likely to increase significantly again in 2019, driven by a combination of organic growth, with markets expected to remain buoyant overall, and external growth, with the full-year effect of acquisitions finalised in 2018, including PrimeLine Utility Services in the United States.
Building on its ability to integrate new entities and generate lasting growth, VINCI Energies will continue to pursue its proactive international expansion strategy. It will do so in Europe by rounding out coverage of its brand networks, which are already operating in virtually all EU countries, and in the rest of the world by expanding around its existing positions (primarily in Africa, Oceania, Indonesia, Singapore, the United States and Brazil). Throughout these geographies, VINCI Energies will amplify networking to further connect its business units and expertise and broaden the range of solutions and services it makes available to its customers.
Across all VINCI Energies business lines, growth will be driven by favourable long-term trends that are already evidenced in the projects currently under way. The energy transition and the spread of renewables will prompt diversification and reconfiguration of power generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure and have an impact on buildings and industrial sites seeking to reduce their carbon footprint. At the same time, progress in digital technologies (artificial intelligence, 5G rollout, etc.) will transform energy, transport and communication systems as well as industrial processes, workplaces and urban spaces.
In all these areas, VINCI Energies will be able to help its customers navigate their digital transformation. To achieve this, the business line will step up synergies among its networks of expertise and continue its co-innovation policy, which brings together its business units, customers, partners and the other VINCI Group business lines within the Leonard platform to work on a wide variety of endeavours.
