Quiénes somos

Essentium is a highly internationalised group, specialising in the construction of major infrastructure projects, industrial facilities, conventional and renewable power, construction materials and industrialised housing on four of the five continents worldwide

Headquartered in Spain, the Essentium Group has over 40 years' experience in its chosen business areas, with active contracts in more than 20 countries.

In 2006, the Essentium Group decided to do something new with its accumulated expertise and understanding of basic construction materials. Its know-how from the mining, concrete and cement sectors, with the backing of its research and development skills, enabled it to make a breakthrough. It worked out how industrialise the construction process in a genuinely innovative manner. This led to the creation of MCH, the Group company specialising in developing housing complexes and towns using industrialised methodology. It is especially attractive for emerging economies with unmet demand for social and middle-class housing.

Over the last seven years, Essentium has achieved significant corporate growth with the incorporation of the construction company, Assignia Infrastructuras, in 2009, and the sixth-largest Brazilian industrial and power facilities company, Niplan, in 2012.

In 2013, the Essentium Group signed a joint venture with the MacLaren shipyard, through its investee, Niplan, for the construction of offshore production platforms, drilling rigs and specialist ships and support vessels to exploit the oil and gas reserves in the pre-salt layer.

Combined with its experience in the development, construction, maintenance, operation and production of electricity using conventional and, increasingly, renewable sources (hydro, wind, photovoltaic, solar thermal and biodiesel), this has made Essentium a highly diversified group, ready to take its different business areas into the international markets in which it already operates, targetting Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Central and Mediterranean Europe.
