Ferrovial and Microsoft have agreed a global alliance to advance the development of sustainable digital solutions for the construction, infrastructure, and mobility industries.
The agreement includes the two companies working on the digitalisation of Ferrovial’s operations, including process automation, frontline worker communications and project collaboration, AI technologies, and the development of zero trust cyber security models.
The two companies will also search for new ways of building and providing energy for the optimisation of Microsoft’s data centres, and the development of innovative technological initiatives and solutions that enable sustainable development.
The two companies are already accelerating ongoing initiatives such as AIVIA, Ferrovial’s smart roads project, and the use of digital twins based on IoT technologies.
Ignacio Madridejos, CEO of Ferrovial, commented: “This alliance represents a common vision and strategy around the value of digitalisation and sustainability being a unique opportunity for co-innovation and development of digital solutions to accelerate the digitalisation of our infrastructures.”
Alberto Granados, president of Microsoft Spain, said: “We share with Ferrovial a strategic commitment to innovation, digitalisation and sustainability, which we want to take to the next level with this alliance.
“The experience and leadership of both companies will enable us to advance the joint development of sustainable digital solutions to transform the construction, infrastructure and mobility industries.”
