The transformation of natural resources into energy is a vital step in the growth process. Ansaldo Energia has brought its machinery and power plants (and with them electric power and development) to 90 countries on all fi ve continents, confirming that it is an innovative and reliable producer and a vital technology partner for emerging economies too. Ansaldo Energia works for governments, public utilities, independent power producers and industrial customers. The company’s commercial proposition involves the use of different, but complementary, technologies and sources of energy.
Engineering, production, commissioning and service activities are managed directly from headquarters in Genoa or through the company’s subsidiaries: Ansaldo Nucleare (Genoa); Ansaldo Thomassen (The Netherlands, Rheden); Ansaldo Thomassen Gulf (Abu Dhabi). Commercial delegations represent the company in various countries in the European Union, Central and Eastern Europe, North and South America, the Middle East, the Far East and Africa.
The global energy market feeds all aspects of economic growth. Energy is an advanced technology sector that creates value both for itself and for the economy as a whole.
All operators in the energy chain have a set of global responsibilities in terms of effi ciency, reliability and the ability to interact with the other players in the system. Ansaldo Energia regards this responsibility primarily as a commitment to customer satisfaction and profitability, which the company puts into practice with a typically Italian human touch, creating a relationship based on listening, understanding needs, flexibility and the capacity to respond.
This is a relationship between people as well as between businesses, one which offers customers a reliable partner and a prompt response. Value for customers also represents value for us. An approach to business that is underpinned by the company’s organisation and culture. The company fi elds a team of qualifi ed professionals covering all the necessary competences, from research and development to engineering, from industrial production to erection, from plant installation to maintenance, totalling almost 3,500 people, all of whom share a vast heritage of technology and experience, and most importantly the ability to work together as a team, both with each other and with the customer.
Energy is our business as it has been for more than a century and a half.
Ansaldo’s electromechanical engineering activities were a constant feature of all stages in the industrial revolution, from the manufacture of boilers and electric generators to the production of complete means of transport (ships, locomotives, cars and even aeroplanes), and from steam-based power generation plants (from 1912) to gas turbines (from 1992), a segment in which the company achieved full technological independence in 2005.
Ansaldo Energia has also gained extensive experience rom internally incubated spin offs or business acquisitions: Ansaldo Thomassen, which has been producing heavy-duty gas turbines under licence from GE for the last 50 years; Ansaldo Nucleare and Ansaldo Electric Drives, which were created based on skills developed within Ansaldo. Ansaldo Energia has capitalised on all this experience, building up a body of know-how that is unrivalled in the competitive arena. The result is a world-leading Italian company with the capabilities to beat the competition in the toughest international tenders through the breadth of its references, the quality, flexibility and efficiency of its products and, most importantly, the commitment and experience of its people.
