Segments The company operates through three segments, including Engineering and Construction, Concession-Type Infrastructures, and Industrial Production. Engineering and Construction This segment provides turnkey engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services from design to implementation for infrastructure projects within the energy and water sectors and engages in other related activities with a high technology component. The company is responsible for all phases of the engineering and construction cycle, including project identification and development, basic and detailed engineering, construction and operation and maintenance. Within the environmental sector, the company builds water infrastructure, desalination and water treatment plants in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia. The company offers electrical, mechanical and instrumental infrastructures in the energy, industrial, water management, and services sectors, as well as the development of technology for its businesses. Through its Engineering and Construction activity, the company provides services throughout Europe, North America, South America, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia-Pacific. The company’s core areas of operation are the development, design and construction on an EPC basis of renewable energy (solar, wind, ethanol, biodiesel and biomass) plants; power transmission lines; conventional energy (co-generation and combined cycle) plants; water treatment, desalination plants, other hydraulic infrastructures and industrial installations. Solar Energy The company’s Engineering and Construction activity's work for the Solar segment of its Concession Type Infrastructure activity includes the construction of 13 solar 50 megawatt (MW) trough power plants in Spain. As of December 31, 2014, the Solana and Mojave projects are included within Abengoa Yield and are thus classified as discontinued operation. In South Africa, the company is building three solar thermal projects, two solar thermal plants with 100 MW of capacity each with parabolic trough technology, and a 50 MW tower solar thermal technology power plant, all of which would sell electricity to the local national grid for 20 years. The company’s Engineering and Construction activity's work for other entities in the solar energy field includes the construction of the world's first integrated solar combined cycle plant with 150 MW in Hassi R'Mel (Algeria), as well as the construction of a 470 MW power plant located in Ain Beni Mathar (Morocco), for the Office National de I'Electricite (ONE), the Moroccan power utility, both of which have entered into operation. Both plants, in Algeria and Morocco, would use combined cycle technology integrated with a solar field of parabolic trough collectors. Transmission As of December 31, 2014, the Engineering and Construction activity had 5,143 kilometers of high voltage power transmission lines in operation for proprietary use (of which 1,611 kilometers are owned by Abengoa Yield, which it had classified as discontinued operation and 6,820 kilometers of such lines under construction. In 2014, the company participated in an auction organized by the Brazilian National Electricity Agency (Agência Nacional de Energia Eletrica (ANEEL)) in which it were awarded two additional projects for a total of 380 kilometers of new transmission lines. In 2013, the company was selected by Ukrenergo, the national energy company of Ukraine, to develop an electricity transmission project that includes construction of a 187 kilometer line that would connect the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant with the substation in Kakhovska. In 2013, it selected by Mexico's Federal Electricity Commission to develop a new electricity transmission project in Mexico. The contract includes the engineering, construction and startup of a 201 kilometers transmission line and two substations. In 2013, the company was also chosen by the
