Working towards the future of energy in Europe

Enabling the energy transition and green mobility

As system provider and project partner, we specialize in building the lifelines for the railway and for the energy infrastructure of our future – for several decades and in numerous countries. The ambitious goals for a future-proof energy supply and climate-neutral Europe cannot be achieved without expanding energy grids and public transport networks.

Environmentally friendly expansion and electrification of rail networks, promotion of electromobility and the shift towards alternative energy sources, such as photovoltaics and wind energy, can only be realised with increased grid capacity. 

Our customers include railway operators, energy utilities and companies looking for solutions in the area of e-mobility. We construct high-voltage energy transmission lines, electrify railway infrastructure for local mass transit and mainline transport, and build charging infrastructure for the mobility solutions of tomorrow.
