Cedinsa is the leading investment and infrastructure management company in Catalonia, specifically in shadow toll concession systems, and second in total length of managed highway.
Cedinsa is the company responsible for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of the state-of-the-art highway system of central Catalonia: the Llobregat (C16 Sant Fruitós de Bages – Berga), Ter (C17 Centelles- Ripoll), Aro (Maçanet- Platja d’Aro) and Transversal (C25 Cervera- Caldes de Malavella) corridors.
Cedinsa has the technical capacity to manage public and private projects in the general interest in Spain.
The founding partners of Cedinsa were four companies (FCC, Copcisa, Copisa and Comsa) that joined forces in late 2003 to take part in a temporary consortium to bid for the doubling of the Llobregat axis, a contract that they finally won. Thus, Cedinsa Eje del Llobregat came into being. From the beginning the partners considered the idea of extending the founding agreement and transforming the consortium into a business group specialising in public-private partnerships for the construction and management of mobility infrastructures.
The idea prospered, and Cedinsa has been awarded three more concessions to date: The Aro axis, the Ter axis and the Transversal axis. The construction and operation of these highways consolidates the company in the market and enables it to face new challenges.
In November 2019 there was a change in shareholders, from which FCC became a majority shareholder with 51% of the capital, Copisa Concesiones increased its percentage to 24.5% and Comsa transferred and extended its stake to Mircom up to 24 ,5%. Both Copisa Concesiones and Mircom are mainly owned by Mirova. Cedinsa is now geared to future execution of projects that involve other types of infrastructure apart from highways.
