The Ecuadorian Electricity Corporation, the country's public supplier of electricity, placed its trust in the ITH consortium to supervise the Manduriacu hydroelectric project (75% of the ITH consortium is owned by two Spanish companies, INCLAM and TYPSA, while 25% is owned by a local company).

INCLAM's effort paid off due to its wholehearted commitment to internationalise its specialised services, supported by the quality and experience guaranteed by the group.
