WORKING with and for the best

GHENOVA is an international company that delivers multidisciplinary engineering and consulting services in a wide variety of sectors: energy, infrastructure, industry, marine, offshore, aeronautics and systems. We have a solid methodology for the management of complex projects, with a clear focus on quality, deadlines, safety and respect for the environment. That is why GHENOVA is today a leading company in the market and has a vast experience in Latin America and in other parts of the world.

It all began in 2006 due to the acquisition by means of a Management Buy Out (MBO) process conducted by Carlos Alejo and Francisco Cuervas, the current President and CEO of the company, of the Andalusian branch of GHESA Ingeniería y Tecnología, S.A., where both were executives. The acquisition included the naval, civil and aeronautical branches of activity, which brought together just over a hundred people. Since then, GHENOVA has grown to over 500 professionals by 2019, through a continuous process of geographical and sectorial diversification. At this moment, and after the incorporation of the current Managing Director, Raúl Arévalo, to the shareholders, the company has been immersed in a process of strong expansion.
