Sarens’ main clients are companies requiring large civil works, pertaining to the heavy industry, petrochemical and Oil & Gas production, energy, as well as mining. A specialised Wind division focuses on setting up wind turbines, both onshore and offshore, and a recent investment in NuScale through its US subsidiary Sarens Nuclear & Industrial Services, firmly establishes its presence in the crucial zero-CO2-energy supply chain.
Additionally, Sarens is one of the few players in the sector that is active globally. An impeccable reputation, wide-ranging flexibility, and profound expertise make Sarens the ideal partner for small to large-scale and complex lifting and shifting challenges.
