At the top of the Energy Transition

09 Jan 2018

Tractebel climbs to #3 and #4 respectively in the 2017 ENR Global Ranking of the world’s top international design firms for wind and solar projects, and cements its #2 position for hydro projects.

Every year, Engineering News-Record (ENR) magazine publishes rankings of the largest construction and engineering firms worldwide, measured by gross revenues generated from projects outside each firm’s respective home country. In 2017, Tractebel climbed to 3rd and 4th positions respectively among the world’s top design firms for wind and solar projects and kept its position as the 2nd largest in Hydro. These figures emphasise Tractebel’s strong position in renewable energy projects and underpin the company’s vision to be at the helm of the energy transition. 

Tractebel also climbed from #8 to #5 in Nuclear, but dropped to #5 in T&D. Click here to find out more.
