Since 1996, Egis has developed a large experience as motorway operator and currently operates 29 roads and motorways in 19 different countries in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America, i.e. a network of nearly 2800km (including 59km of tunnels).
These infrastructures are operated by Egis subsidiaries through long term contracts, either within public private partnerships (toll motorway concessions or PPPs with public availability payments) or within service contracts awarded by public authorities.
These subsidiaries are comprised of more than 6700 staff, including numerous experts in the various fields of road operation:
Egis provides its operating companies with technical support, and its diversified network of subsidiaries exchange best practices and services (though its “Club exploitation”). Quality performances are regularly reviewed to ensure the highest levels of safety, of services to users and of asset conditions.
A full range of Solutions are developed with O&M subsidiaries to continuously improve operations and maintenance. Among them, SimCoach provides training to operators based on 3D simulation (see SimCoach film).

Egis was able to develop a training module specific to event management, supported by a 3D simulator system. It is creating scenarios for trainees (control room operators and/or patrollers) to respond to.These scenarios simulate events commonly (or less commonly) found on motorways: road traffic accident (with or without injury), vehicle break down, stray animal, pedestrian, fire, system failure, debris on carriageway, fire …).
In order to ensure the quality of SimCoach trainings, both in terms of business skills involved (operation of motorways and road tunnels) and training skills, a charter commits the heads of training centers and Egis trainers. This charter also exists in French.
