Pini Group acquires Italy's Geodata, which operates in more than 20 countries around the world, and enters the field of Hydropower at a key moment for the energy sector worldwide
LUGANO, Switzerland, Sept. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

The 20 different offices and branches of the historic Turin-based leading 
geoengineering company specializing in the design of underground works and in 
the hydroelectric sector will become part of Pini Group.

Through this transaction, Pini Group accelerates its growth path by reinforcing 
its international presence as a reference company in design, construction 
management and consulting services for underground works.

With over 70 years of experience in the local and international market, the 
Swiss-born engineering company Pini Group has now acquired Geodata - a 
geoengineering company founded in Turin in 1984 and active in 20 countries, 
with subsidiaries in Italy, Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, 
Canada, Chile, Ecuador, Greece, India, Malaysia, Nepal, Portugal, Peru, and 
Turkey, which is mainly involved in underground and hydro-related works design.

With this strategic acquisition, Pini Group wants to benefit from the know-how 
of a company that in these 38 years of activity has planned and supervised the 
construction of more than 4,000 km of tunnels and more than 3,500 projects 
worldwide relating to subways, traditional and high-speed railways, roads and 
motorways, dams and hydroelectric plants, as well as geology and environment. 

"We recognize in Geodata an excellent player in the world of underground 
engineering and hydropower. Our intention is to enhance all the assets that 
have allowed this company to write the history of engineering: from its workers 
to its network of suppliers and its international partners. This acquisition is 
based on common values that characterize the two companies. Both Geodata and 
Pini started out as family businesses, which through hard work, dynamism and 
the pursuit of excellence have become global players in the engineering sector. 
Furthermore, the acquisition of Geodata allows Pini to access the renewable 
energy sector, with a particular focus on the hydroelectricity.

In the fragile and transitional moment we are currently facing, we can make the 
experience and knowledge of a dynamic, international and innovative group 
available to the sector. We will join forces to build the future of engineering 

Andrea Galli, CEO of Pini Group 

Among the projects that have made Geodata an excellence in the world of 
underground engineering over the years it is worth mentioning the recent design 
of the 6 metro lines in the city of Istanbul, still under construction, the 
extension of the São Paulo metro line 5 in Brazil and the Maldonado River 
underground tunnel in Buenos Aires.

The acquisition will give a strong acceleration to the development plans of 
Pini Group, which thus exceeds 700 employees, and strengthens its position as a 
leading company in design, construction management and consulting services.
