Ariane 6 Launch complex

Space adventure

With a space industry track record stretching back more than 50 years, Eiffage Énergie Systèmes notably helped to build launch pads ELA1, ELA2 and ELA3, as well as Soyuz (rocket) and Vega (launch vehicle). As an industrial process expert, Eiffage Énergie Systèmes is responsible for the launch pad's power generation, electrical distribution and lightning protection systems, safety installations and utility instrumentation and control systems. Teams at our production facilities in Europe and at the space centre in French Guiana are also developing instrumentation and control systems for the various stages of the launch vehicle.

As part of its investment programme relating to Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things, Airbus Safran Launchers also awarded Eiffage Énergie Systèmes the contract to build the automated fabrication shop that will produce nozzles for the Ariane 6 and Vega solid-propellant rocket motors. The strong fit between Eiffage Énergie Systèmes' electrical and mechanical engineering capabilities was a key factor in the success of this project.
