History

Founded in 1973, Geoplano-Geotechnical Consultants was one of the first Portuguese companies specialized in geotechnical engineering, and has taken part in many emblematic national projects since then, such as Siderurgia Nacional (Portuguese Steel Industry), Complexo Petroquímico de Sines (Sines Petrochemical Complex) and the initial sections of motorways A1 and A2. Abroad, Geoplano participated in studies and projects for dam constructions in Mauritania, Nigeria and the Ivory Coast.

In 2001, after a change in the ownership structure, the name of the company was modified to Geoplano Aherne - Geotechnical Consultants, thus marking the beginning of a renovation cycle.

This new phase has been marked by the strengthening of technical facilities, the internationalization to Eastern Europe and Africa, and an investment in areas such as pavement investigation, groundwater works and environmental assessment. Currently a Limited Company, Geoplano-Consultants continues to seek new markets and areas of action, based on a perspective of innovation and continuous improvement of its services.
