The strategic value of technical management of assets

In the constantly evolving world of transport and mobility infrastructure, technical management has emerged as a critical component for the success of companies operating in this sector. Whether this involves the operation and maintenance of highways, bridges, railways, or public transport systems, the technical management of assets plays a fundamental role beyond project supervision and control.

Whenever there is infrastructure such as a highway, railway, or metro, it makes sense to think that having a team of specialized technicians is necessary to guarantee that the projects are implemented correctly to ensure efficient management of the business portfolio.

In addition to the above, we also need to bear in mind that although the essence of the business is infrastructure management, the economic/financial side of this type of business appears to confer more specific weight on financial asset managers than on the daily technical work of a concession.

Nevertheless, having a team that understands the universal technical language and is capable of channeling knowledge to the right places as and when required is vital for a company to optimize its processes, thereby increasing its value based on an analysis of all the information compiled from all its assets through a holistic approach.

The world of transport and mobility infrastructures is constantly evolving, with technological advances that transform how people move and how infrastructure is operated. Our Technical Management is at the avant-garde of implementing new technologies and innovations that are highlighted in several projects that are currently being carried out. This not only improves operation and maintenance efficiency thanks to the sharing of knowledge, but it also permits the implementation of more sustainable, environmentally friendly solutions in this new paradigm of mobility infrastructures.

The technical management of assets plays a fundamental role in identifying and mitigating risks, anticipating potential problems, and implementing preventive measures to avoid any issues with collapses, delays, and additional costs.

But not just that. Any investment by the Group must be assessed from a technical point of view, and even though this is an integral part of the process, who guarantees that the information used is accurate? How can we be sure that the values are within market ratios?

Moreover, in a company like Globalvia with projects and concessions in very different geographical areas, technical management needs to work as a collaboration and information platform that can help to find and compare other suppliers, the best specialists in the international market contributing the most efficient solutions, thereby providing support to the highway and railway team regarding the best option.

In short, technical management of assets involves different tasks: help, collaboration, support, auditing, study, advice, optimization, analysis, management, and research… always with the ultimate goal of improving and constantly contributing to our “Globalvia way.”
