Strategic priorities

Raise the bar for operational excellence at the grassroots level

Drawing on sales of around €17 billion, a headcount of nearly 90,000 highly-qualified people, the strength and density of its geographical footprint, and a solid reputation backed by local, long-standing brands, Equans demonstrates excellent technical know-how in design, installation, maintenance and high-performance services, using a unique combination of skills and expertise in the following fields: electricity, HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), cooling and fire protection, maintenance, digital and ICT, and mechanical engineering, and robotics. Its people carry out their duties in strict compliance with a framework based on three main priorities: safety, ethics and cybersecurity.

Increase the overall performance of projects by optimising the use of data and connectivity

Equans has created several specialist brands, such as Equans Solar & Storage, Equans Data Centers and Equans Nuclear. Equans Digital was created to help increase the overall performance (energy, technical and exploitation) of its customers’ operational facilities. Equans harnesses data and brand-new technology to operate on the high-growth construction, industry, cities and smart networks markets.

Contribute to a low-carbon energy future

To address the challenge of the energy transition, Equans is aiming to consolidate its position all along the energy value chain, primarily in the key fields of decarbonisation, by developing renewable energy infrastructure, upgrading and expanding high- and medium-voltage transmission networks, specialising in low-carbon mobility (electric vehicle charge points, rail electrification and e-highways),helping customers to transition to heat pumps, and by focusing on high-growth markets (such as clean technology, gigafactories and data centres).

Take hyper-specialisation to the next level

Equans helps businesses embrace the opportunities of the fourth industrial revolution, from energy efficiency and smart automation, to robotics, mechanics and imaging systems. Drawing on its key capabilities in air and fluid treatment for clean rooms, it is ideally placed to support the growth of the European pharmaceutical, biotechnology and microelectronics industries. Equans’ entities also boast the multi-technical expertise to meet the stringent technical and regulatory standards that apply to nuclear power plants at all stages of their life cycle -construction, operation and decommissioning.

Operational priorities
