Spanish firms Ferrovial and SNGULAR have teamed up in an effort to transform the infrastructure sector through digital products based on AI and the Internet of Things.

As part of the collaboration, both companies will spearhead the digitalisation of Ferrovial’s operations with the aim of driving advancements in construction methods, optimising renewable energy utilisation in buildings and data centers, and pioneering innovative technological initiatives and solutions.

The overarching goal is to facilitate sustainable development and pave the way for a net-zero emissions future in the construction and infrastructure-management market.

Ferrovial is a Spanish multinational company that operates in the infrastructure sector for transportation and mobility.

SNGULAR is a developer of custom software solutions founded more than 20 years ago in Madrid.

‘Significant stride’

Dimitris Bountolos, director general of Information Systems and Innovation at Ferrovial, said: “This agreement marks yet another significant stride towards our ambition of leading the transformation of the infrastructure sector.

“The combination of technologies such as the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence applied to our industry will improve the way we operate and the service we provide to citizens.”

Sarah Harmon, global CEO of SNGULAR, said: “SNGULAR has been dedicated to transforming industries through technology for many years.

“This alliance solidifies our position as a key player in the infrastructure sector and strengthens our capacity to export Spanish technology to diverse regions.”

Both companies have worked together on various projects since 2018.

The technology resulting from this particular partnership is expected to be developed in Spain and used in Ferrovial’s various business units in all the markets where it operates – including the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia.

The partnership also includes the possibility of scaling the product.
