Ingerop strengthens its position in transport systems with the acquisition of Spanish company Leedeo Engineering

Based in Barcelona and Madrid, Leedeo Engineering specialises in RAMS (Reliability, Maintainability, Availability, Safety) engineering, EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) studies and systems engineering, particularly in the field of urban and rail transport.

This new acquisition will enable the Group to strengthen its expertise in transport-related systems. It will also enable it to consolidate its positions in Spain and Latin America, and to develop this expertise in other European and Mediterranean countries.

A historic and strategic presence

Ingerop has been present in Spain for over 20 years, with 4 offices in Madrid, Barcelona, Granada and Seville and a team of almost 90 employees.
With strong added value in the field of urban and rail transport, Ingerop’s subsidiary in Spain has been involved in the project management and supervision of major projects in Spain, such as the Barcelona, Zaragoza and Granada tramways, the Extremadura and Basque high-speed lines, and in Latin America, for the Medellín tramway in Colombia and the Serena tramway in Chile, the Panama metro, the Cochabamba metro in Bolivia and the Lima metro in Peru. The company is also active in a large number of transport projects in France, such as the Grand Paris metro, and the tramways in Montpellier, Toulouse and Avignon, as well as in Canada, Belgium and the UK. Finally, it is now developing new areas of expertise in infrastructure and tunnels, cities and construction.

Leedeo Engineering, cutting-edge expertise for the entire Ingerop group

The arrival of Leedeo Engineering has enabled the Ingerop group to increase its production capacity in transport systems, particularly in FDMS studies. These studies, carried out by Leedeo Engineering, are an essential component of almost all transport projects in Europe and around the world, and guarantee their optimal operation as well as risk forecasting that meets the challenges of passenger transport in the 21st century.
Leedeo Engineering is also developing expertise in Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), interoperability studies, system integration and monitoring requirements and compliance with standards. The medium-term objective of this acquisition is also to develop the Ingerop group’s certification capabilities in the field of rail safety.

With the acquisition of Smart 2 in 2019, Leedeo Engineering today and the recent developments of Ingerop in Spain, the Spanish subsidiary becomes one of the 4 pillars of Ingerop internationally, alongside Germany, the United Kingdom and South Africa. It is thus a real reference centre in the field of Transport, complementing the French and Canadian centres, capable of promoting the continued development of the Ingerop group worldwide on high added value projects.
