Why invest in NYAB?
Proven track record of exceptionally profitable growth in Swedish infrastructure markets
NYAB has a diversified and cherry-picked order backlog that includes several perennial frame and maintenance agreements. Swedish group companies have achieved profitable growth already for ten years. NYAB participates in several projects in the public sector especially in Northern Sweden and Stockholm region. Projects include the construction of roads, sewage pipes, electric grids, and railways. Public investments are balancing demand in a countercyclical manner, and the Swedish Government’s national plan for transport infrastructure, for example, includes record-high investments for 2022-2033. Because of strong market knowledge and competence, NYAB is well positioned to continue profitable growth, of which it has strong proof also in a macroeconomically challenging operating environment.
Strong presence in growing markets of Norrbotten region
NYAB has a strong foothold in Norrbotten region, where public and private investments that are essential for the green transition of the entire Nordics have been estimated to amount to even more than 100 billion euros during the next 10-20 years. NYAB has a strong presence in the market area and it participates in several investment projects that aim for a clean future. It is constructing, for example, new infrastructure and industrial facilities that are relocated out of the way of the expaning mining areas.
Diverse expertise in the value chain of renewable energy
In its Finnish business operations, NYAB has especially concentrated on energy construction by executing, for example, BoP projects thhat include land improvement, foundations, and power network of the wind farm in a project-specifically defined scope. It also has diverse expertise in engineering and specialist services in the value chain of renewable energy. Uncertainty in the energy markets and an unstable geopolitical situation have further accelerated the need for projects that improve energy self-sufficiency, as well as investments in renewable energy and power networks, in which case there is more and more demand for NYAB’s competences.
NYAB owns 40% of a joint venture that has been established with CapMan Nordic Infrastructure II fund. Skarta Energy Oy operates under the joint venture and has a fast-growing renewable energy project development portfolio. Its project development concentrates on solar power that can be complemented with wind power and hydrogen solutions in selected projects. Active project development also enables significant growth of NYAB’s energy construction business with contracts regarding engineering, procurement, and construction of projects.
