With respect to the business segments, the Engineering & Construction activity backlog at December 31, 2010 totaled 9,274 M€, which provides a good outlook over the company´s revenues for the next 24 months, and a great visibility over 2011 objectives, as backlog represents about 90% of expected revenues for this business unit.
The Concession-type Infrastructure segment, which primarily includes electricity generation and transmission, accumulated a backlog at December 31, 2010 of more than €34.0 billion, as a result of the 31 energy generation plants and the 10,000 km of transmission lines in operation or under construction that the company has as of today. During 2010, three Concentrated Solar Power plants, four transmission lines and one desalination plant went into operation.
Finally the Industrial Production segment produced a record number of 2.3 billion liters of biofuels and recycled 2.2 million tons of industrial waste. Three new bioenergy plants went into operation, two of them in the United States and the other one in the Netherlands. We also started expansion in Turkey with the industrial waste business.
According to Manuel Sánchez Ortega, CEO of Abengoa, “In an extremely complex environment, we have managed to continue to grow our revenues significantly. We have improved the profitability of our business segments, increased our backlog, continued developing our projects for new plants and transmission power lines, and progressed on our R&D efforts. All together represent a new step in our strategy of delivering results in the short term and simultaneously continue investing in technology innovation and new plants that guarantee value creation in the medium and long term.
