strategic priorities

Raise the bar for operational excellence at the grassroots level

Drawing on sales of around €17 billion, a headcount of nearly 100,000 highly[1]qualified people, the strength and density of its geographical footprint, and a solid reputation backed by local, long[1]standing brands, Equans enjoys excellent technical know-how in design, installation, maintenance and high-performance services, using a unique combination of skills and expertise in the following fields: HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), cooling and fire protection, maintenance, digital and ICT, electrical 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.

Harness data and connectivity to boost overall project performance

Equans has created Equans Digital to help boost the energy efficiency, technical performance and usability of its customers’ systems and facilities. Leveraging new technologies and big data, Equans operates in three high-growth markets:

  • Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) and Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) in Europe, and in Germany in particular
  • Data centres, where it is developing sustainable energy and cooling solutions to limit their environmental footprint
  • Smart cities, buildings and industries

Contribute to a low-carbon energy future

Developing renewable energy sources is a major challenge of our time. In response, Equans is aiming to consolidate its position all along the energy value chain – by developing renewable energy infrastructure, by upgrading and expanding high- and medium-voltage transmission networks, by carving out a specialist niche in low-carbon mobility (electric vehicle charging infrastructure, rail electrification and e-highways), by helping its customers 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 manufacturers 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 dismantling.
