Through the agreement, Técnicas Reunidas will provide engineering services for the design of the projects from the feasibility phase to the front-end engineering design (FEED), including the evaluation and selection of technologies. Furthermore, the agreement contemplates alternatives for the execution of the projects, whose locations have already been identified.

The agreement has been signed within the framework of the IGNIS P2X project launched by IGNIS together with investment company KKR and is said to be a part of IGNIS’ strategy in the field of new energy vectors.
