International

The world economy is characterised by increasing globalisation, a process deriving from the disappearance of market barriers, the possibility of operating from any geographic point on the planet, relaxing of trade restrictions and extreme competition. All of these changes pose new challenges and a new setting in which companies need to establish themselves at an international level in order to continue to expand, and in some cases, to survive.

We have always placed an important emphasis on international activities, understanding such exterior expansion as being necessary in order to enable the growth of our organisation.

This interest is reflected by the presence of our company in numerous countries such as Mexico, Cuba, Morocco, the USA and Ethiopia through the execution of projects in our main areas of activity: the environment, irrigation and rural and agricultural development.

We are aware of the need to expand and maintain our presence in international markets in order to ensure the permanence and progress of our company and at the same time assume the new challenges posed by the current market in a globalised economy.

Objective

For this reason, in 2005 we established the objective of consolidating the globalisation of our engineering and consultancy services. To do so, we made an important investment into gaining access to the highly competitive market of Multilateral Financial Institutions, especially in relation to two of the basic areas of activity for the company, the environment and agro-industrial engineering.

In order to achieve this goal, IG has established links with Governments, Financial Institutions and International Entities, it has created an important Network of International Experts and it has established Business Associations with both leading European engineering firms and local companies of the different countries in which it has a presence.

As a consequence of the work carried out, we currently have an intense participation in the market for international tenders, working with the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI), the African Development Bank (ADB), the European Union, etc. These are highly competitive procedures which have enabled us to demonstrate our high technical and economic capacity.

These efforts have yielded notable results, and we are currently present in numerous countries, working with various Multilateral Financial Institutions as well as private clients.

We are characterised by the fact that we work on projects from the initial phases, being present in the countries in which the works are to be carried out, assisting the entities which request the funds to identify and define the project itself and providing advice as to how to achieve the best financing to ensure achievement of the objectives set. Another feature which characterises our work in the International Department is the adaptation of our technical solutions to the real needs of the local country.

Comprehensive Management of the Project for the Construction of a Bioethanol Manufacturing Plant in Sinaloa (Mexico)

A ‘key in hand’ project for the construction of the above plant with a daily production capacity of 350,000 litres of bioethanol.

The primary material used is maize and sorghum. The resulting by-product is used for animal feed.

The manufacturing process consists of:

  • Preparation of the must. Hydrolisation of the cereal starch by way of heating.
  • Semi-continuous fermentation. This system enables permanent supply to the distillation section of fermented must and is also equipped with a continuous yeast propagation system.
  • Distillation-rectification, to enable separation of the alcohol content in the fermented must and subsequent elimination of impurities.
  • Dehydration by means of a molecular sieve which retains the aqueous fraction.

Investment: 45.000.000 euros.
