LETTER FROM
THE CHAIRMAN
Dear Shareholders:
As Chairman of Duro Felguera it is a great satisfaction for me to appear before you once again
to inform you of the company’s results, the most relevant events of the last financial year and the
outlook for the future.
Firstly, I would like to point out that the favourable effects of having implemented the 20022004 Strategy Scheme have already started to show. Consequently, the company’s core business
has been perfectly defined and this has allowed us to:
· Mantain and improve our business turnover.
· Reinforce our technological alliances.
· Re-order the markets in cooperation with other relevant companies.
· Optimise our resources by improving the professional, financial and industrial profile of
Duro Felguera, all of which places us at the third stage of planned development, already
announced in my letter to you in last year’s Annual Report.
2002 YEARLY RESULTS
Having said this and as all of you have been able to verify by the documentation handed to you
at the start of this meeting as well as by the information made public by the company over the
last months, the results of Duro Felguera during the last financial year, although not optimum,
may be qualified as reasonably favourable given the special developments of the markets where
the company is present.
Consolidated profits have risen by 7% with respect to the previous financial year. The most significant increase has been made by the Parent Company, which more than triples last year’s
results. This great difference is due to the fact that a large portion of business undertaken by
companies which make up the group, is now concentrated in the Parent Company.
It is equally important to note that general business has experienced a growth of 179%, rising
from 4.4 million euros in 2001 to 12.3 million in 2002.
ORDER INTAKE & BACKLOG
Possibly the most outstanding aspect of Duro Felguera over the last year has been the great
increase registered in orders, showing a growth of 66% with respect to the previous year. It is
also noteworthy that at last year’s closure, orders to the amount of 430 million euros were expected in comparison to the previous year’s 303 million euros; an overall increase of 42%. Apart from
the importance of this rise, the previously mentioned 430 million euros assure not only the company’s activities over a continuous period of time, but are also a favourable reflection on the profit and loss accounts. All Duro Felguera subsidiaries that have reached business expectations
and results foreseen in the Strategy Scheme, as gathered in their respective accounts, contribute to the Profit and Loss Account except those who are still in an adaptation phase. The subsidiary Duro Felguera, S.A. de C.V. in Mexico and its engineering subsidiary Pycorsa have begun to
make a profit, if modestly.
Over 2002, order intake has been orientated in favour of the domestic market mainly due to
the fact that better business opportunities have been appraised and as a consequence of the contracts that have been awarded and their proximity to production centres, streamlining costs more
effectively. All of this can be observed in greater detail throughout this report.
The fact that an increase in orders has been maintained during 2002 is especially significant
bearing in mind the enormous difficulties that the international markets have gone through, in a
climate of industrial, financial and political uncertainty.

LEADERS IN TURNKEY PROJECTS
You will remember that during our previous meeting we insisted that our strategy was to make
Duro Felguera a company focused towards turnkey projects and that it should have its own technology or technology in consortium with others.
Well, our primary aspirations have come true during 2002: Duro Felguera has become a leader in
turnkey industrial projects. Among our principal successes is having become the first Spanish company in history to be awarded, as Main Contractor, the construction and commissioning of two gas
combined cycle power generation plants for our client Endesa, namely Son Reus II and Barranco de
Tirajana. Having achieved this objective drives us even more to double our efforts for the future.
STRATEGIC ALLIANCES
Last year when we talked about our own technology or technology in consortium with others, we
referred, in the latter supposition, to the procedure by means of which to acquire this technology, by
securing alliances with the most appropriate technological partners in each case. But, this would
always be based on the fact that the Duro Felguera name should be sufficiently attractive to the large
multinationals in possession of the technology.
Well, the solid performance of Duro Felguera in years past and confirmed throughout 2002, has
allowed us to further increase our prestige in the capital goods sector and to consolidate our strategy.
We are present in each of the business sectors where the Company carries out its purpose backed by
stable, long-term alliances with large multinationals thereby complementing our strengths. This has
been applied with great success till now and we will continue to do so in the future.
In previous General Meetings I have informed you of the various agreements signed with international and foremost companies in the power generation sector where Duro Felguera is at the forefront. During this fiscal year we have added another technological alliance. This was signed with the
English construction company Balfour Beatty to develop high-speed railway track components.
In addition, a joint venture has been set up with the prestigious Japanese industrial group
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to undertake joint ventures in Europe. This is the first time that the
Japanese company creates a joint venture in Europe to open up new markets. Although initially this
enterprise is foreseen to market, design and manufacture tunnel boring machines, it will later extend
its activities, employing other commercially viable technologies developed by the Japanese multinational in Europe and South America.
It is thanks to these agreements that Duro Felguera has taken a step forward into the infrastructure sector.
The alliances with important Mexican partners aimed at strengthening activities in the petrochemical engineering sector are also worth noting. A majority share in the engineering company Pycorsa
has meant a significant entrance into the Mexican Oil industry.
A major qualitative leap forward has also been made into the of Petrochemical Product Storage
sector, which is carried out by Felguera-IHI. This advance opens up improved perspectives for the
future in this field. Without having to abandon its traditional role of construction and engineering,
Felguera-IHI has evolved towards crude storage management as logistical operator. In addition, the
significant achievements in construction of cryogenic storage tanks have consolidated Duro
Felguera’s position in the regasification of increasingly demanded liquid gas.
It is a great pride for us that top international companies accept alliances with Duro Felguera to
further penetrate into various markets. Even more so when you consider that these alliances are
established without any significant limits for business expansion.
These important developments go to fulfil one of Duro Felguera’s needs and apparent weaknesses, interpreted by some analysts as being the possible lack of technology in the Company. As I already informed you in my previous letter, at last year’s closure the needs expressed in the Company’s
Strategy Scheme to reinforce engineering and manufacturing capacity of capital goods and turnkey
plants have been covered. Duro Felguera is currently focused towards power systems, petrochemical, infrastructure, engineering, erection and start-up of industrial installations.

INVESTMENTS
Another major objective for Duro Felguera during 2002 was to pay particular attention to its tangible assets, in order to maintain the highest quality and to assure delivery schedules whilst at the same
time optimising production costs and results of the multiple business units.
Therefore, in order to improve productivity more than 5 million euros have been invested in modernising machinery, work centres and environments of various industrial and administrative installations in the certainty that this initiative will favour Duro Felguera’s competitiveness.
Attention has also been focused on the corporate Image. Significant financial resources have been
allocated to increase communication capacity, to make Duro Felguera known both internally and
externally among clients, suppliers, and shareholders, to institutions of all kinds and the social setting where the Company carries out its activities.
The magnificent opportunities that Internet has to offer have been acknowledged as one of the
methods to achieve this objective. The permanently updated Duro Felguera website contains information considered of general interest and is available to the shareholders and to anybody that wishes
to make us a virtual visit.
At the same time, the Shareholders Bulletin hosted on the website is updated every three months.
This substitutes the traditional hardcopy format and includes a summary of the mandatory report that
is periodically sent to the Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores (CNMV).
HUMAN RESOURCES
In the Company’s Human Resources area the process to optimise resources has continued. This
has been developed in the usual climate of understanding and good relations with the only exception
of the conflicts which arose just before the union elections at Felguera Calderería Pesada and
Felguera Calderería Pesada Servicios causing some tension, though this has gradually eased.
The Training schemes, which have been of such success to Duro Felguera have continued. These
have included both occupational and continuous training and are being developed in cooperation with
the National Institute for Employment (Instituto Nacional de Empleo), taking place at Duro Felguera
Training Centres. Different types of professional courses are offered geared to the needs of the
Company’s activities. Trained personnel have been taken on in the various workshops and departments of the Company and its subsidiaries.
We are also pleased to inform you that last 25 September, in a letter to the United Nations
Secretary General, Kofi Annan, Duro Felguera expressed its deep interest in adopting, supporting and
promoting within its area of influence the fundamental values in the fields of Human Rights, Labour
Relations and respect for the Environment sponsored by the Global Compact. Duro Felguera has
expressed a wish to include the commitment in its objectives to comply faithfully with the nine
Fundamental Principles on which the Global Compact stands. The necessary internal measures will
be taken to carry this out.
GOOD GOVERNANCE
The incorporation of Duro Felguera shareholders onto the Board of Directors representing major
companies from diverse sectors within Asturias has aided certain business transactions affording
successful cooperation from these incorporations. Following the Code of Good Governance these
transactions have been checked and approved by the Board without intervention of the interested parties. Actions taken in these types of operations are already regulated in the Board’s Rules of Conduct
to ensure greater transparency of information throughout Duro Felguera’s activities.
I would also like to refer to Duro Felguera’s constant concern in responding to the demands of
industrial modernity as well as adapting to the business environment where its activities take place.
The study to update the Code of Good Governance, which been in force in Duro Felguera since 2000
started in 2002.
The Board of Directors Advisory, Audit and Strategy Committees were set up in the year 2000. It is
in this manner that Duro Felguera was one step ahead of what today is a reality and, in some cases,
legally mandatory for companies whose shares are traded on the stock markets, as is our case.
5
123456 7/8/03 09:54 Página 6
Subsequently, when the Finance Act (Ley Financiera) of November 2002 came into force, Duro
Felguera already had an Audit Committee with its own rules of governance.
It is foreseen that in 2003 the study will continue so that the Board may approve the updated Code
of Governance. In addition, Corporate Management Procedures regulating the Company’s Governing
Bodies are to be established, adapted to the obligations and recommendations of the European
Community Directives that are or will come into force, as well as the already mentioned Finance Act
and other legal requirements within Spanish legislation.
POST FINANCIAL CLOSURE EVENTS
Even though these events occurred after the year’s financial closure, they commenced before it
finalised. It is necessary to refer to the call received from the Sociedad Estatal de Participaciones
Industriales (SEPI) in which Duro Felguera was requested to study the possibility of acquiring shares
in Babcock Borsig España, S.A., a company resulting as the product of the privatisation process of
Babcock Wilcox Española, S.A.
During this process, a confidentiality agreement was subscribed to whilst looking into this possibility and the examining the documentation required to come to a decision. It is public knowledge that
once this documentation was examined and the circumstances surrounding the process were taken
into account, Duro Felguera’s Board of Directors desisted from acquiring the previously mentioned
shares.
We have come a long way since 1994, when I first had the honour of presiding over the Board of
Directors of this great Company. There have been several obstacles, some of them quite large. We
can now see that the strategic objectives we had at the time were sound, and I am pleased to say that
they have been met in their totality. As a consequence, we look to the future with optimism; aware of
the efforts that have to be made, but convinced that the Company’s team of people and our approach
to the business will bear the fruits that our Shareholders expect.
I would like to take this opportunity in addressing you, the Shareholders, to convey our utmost
appreciation for placing your trust on this Board of Directors and its Chairman. To end, I wish to
transmit our optimism for the Company’s future, the Shareholders and Personnel, as well as our
commitment to make every effort and sacrifice to achieve our greatest expectations for the future.
Many thanks to you all.

CORPORATE
GOVERNANCE
Duro Felguera, S.A. was set up for an indefinite period of time on 22 April 1900
under the name of Sociedad Metalúrgica Duro Felguera, S.A. On 25th July 1991 the
company changed its name Grupo Duro Felguera, S.A. and on 26th April 2001 it subsequently adopted its current name, DURO FELGUERA, S.A.
To sum up, the Company’s corporate purpose is to carry out engineering activities,
construction, manufacturing, erection and assembly in the steelworks, boilermaking, smelting and capital goods areas and to construct Industrial Plants awarded
on a turnkey basis, as well as provide services, market and create industrial, commercial and service companies. It may also acquire and hold fixed or variable income securities.
In 1991 Duro Felguera, S.A. completed the process of transforming the various
divisions via which it carried out the company’s multiple business activities into
legally independent companies, reordering the human, material and financial
resources of the Industrial Group. The company structure has currently been reorganised establishing an organisation chart divided into the different lines of business,
illustrated in the chart on pages 44 and 45 of this report under the heading
“Corporate Structure”.
The most important Lines of Business are constituted by: the Power Systems Line
operating as Duro Felguera, S.A. under the umbrella of the Parent Company; Duro
Felguera Plantas Industriales, S.A., Duro Felguera Equipos y Montajes, S.A., both of
which have the same Board of Directors as the Parent Company; the Mining and
Handling Line and the Storage Line.
As it has always done, the Parent Company continues to coordinate and support
the financial activities of its subsidiaries both in their relationships with the credit
entities and in centralising the treasury of all the subsidiaries.
This report includes data relative to the consolidated group, providing a breakdown of business and information on the companies that go to make up the group as
well.
Duro Felguera, S.A shareholders’ equity as at 31 December 2002 consisted of
14.877.421 fully subscribed and paid registered shares represented by account
entries, each with a par value of three euros. All the shares are listed on the Madrid,
Barcelona and Bilbao stock exchanges and carry the same voting and dividend rights.
As at 31 December 2002, according to the data submitted to the Comisión Nacional
del Mercado de Valores (CNMV), the following parties hold a substantial interest of
3% or more in the Company shareholders’ equity:
TSK, Electrónica y Electricidad, S.A.
IMASA, Ingeniería Montajes y Construcciones, S.A.
Duro Felguera, S.A., management holding tied shares

Morgan Stanley International
Caja de Asturias
15.87%

The rest of the Company’s share interests are less significant being lower than 3%,
and of which there is no real reference until the Annual General Meeting takes place,
the shareholders being the Company’s ultimate governing body.

The 2002 financial year has been marked by yet another increase in business turnover which mainly
corresponds to the completion of the Combined Cycle Power Generation Plants awarded at the end of 1999,
the start of construction of two new Combined Cycle Plants awarded this year and the development of a
chloride products plant for PEMEX.
In addition, two tunnel boring machines for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries are currently being manufactured. It is expected that the Company’s presence in this sector will increase as a result of the agreement
reached with this multinational.
The Profit from Ordinary Activities amply surpasses those of 2001, going from 4,364 thousand euros to
12,261 thousand euros. The Consolidated Profit before taxes however, is only slightly improved. This is due
to provisions made in prudence for costs and expenses inherent to two cases currently in the courts.
Nevertheless, the Company expects satisfactory resolutions of these cases.

(paid dividend of the year / closing quotation)
During the 2002 trading year, figures have been
unusually low. Some of the significant factors that
we believe have contributed to share behaviour
are: the size of the company, the holding of substantial stakes in the company which have remained stable throughout the past few years and the
stock market environment in general.
We can safely say that 2002 was not a good year
for share investment and, as was to be expected,
our values did not escape the general tendencies
of the markets. However, the behaviour of Duro
Felguera shares in comparison with the Madrid
Stock Exchange General Index is worth noting:
whilst the Index marked a fall of 23.1%, Duro
Felguera only decreased by 17.65%. If we look at
the PER, the market average was 16.17 whilst
Duro Felguera reached 16.47.
As is becoming usual over the last few years,
during the early months of 2003, the quotation
experienced a sharp rise when approaching the
Annual General Meeting date and the average
quote value during the first week of May 2003
reached 6.6 euros per share.

Order intake in 2002 surpassed predictions by
almost 75 % and, as may be observed in the table
attached, by over 66% with respect to 2001. This,
among other reasons is due to, the materialisation
of contracts which were previously considered as
intentional and to the slight advance made in the
power systems sector in which two important combined cycle projects have been awarded.
By Business Lines, order intake during 2002 has
been as follows:

The Power Systems Line, which since 2001 operates as a department within the parent company,
has seen its leadership materialise after surpassing
the figure of 7.600 MW for constructed gas power
generation plants as a result of two considerable
turnkey contracts in Spain; Barranco de Tirajana
Combined Cycle Plant on the Canary Islands and
Phase II of Son Reus. The Power Systems
Department is on the sidelines and in an excellent
position to deal with those projects that are pending
their launch, both abroad and in Spain. They are
mindful of the opportunities in the European power
systems sector resulting in the necessary revamping
of currently operating power generation plants, and
for which this Department is fully experienced and
offers total guarantees.
Mompresa maintains its traditional business in
the assembly, erection, maintenance and overhaul of
generation units made up fundamentally of steam
and gas turbines operating in power generation
plants for the most relevant companies in the sector.
Its almost permanent presence in these works and
the constant effort made in re-training its technicians and operators has afforded the confidence of
technological companies and clients, which is also a

On the other hand, Duro Felguera, S.A. has not
been exempt from suffering, in part, the grave consequences of the international economic situation.
This has led on the one hand, to having to support
considerable delays in signing contracts that were
ready to be consolidated, and on the other, having to
wait for those projects which suffered delays in their
launch, in the hope that this is only temporary.
Notwithstanding, our experience and flexibility has
allowed us to sustain our presence and secure our
future in foreign markets, whilst at the same time
reinforcing our capacity to take on contracts on the
domestic market and in specialised sectors, as well
as stabilising our leadership.

positive factor in consolidating its presence in new projects. Fruit of this confidence by equipment manufacturers has been the award of contracts in 2002 by new
clients, and in European countries where new markets
opened up to them thereby offering new expectations.
Despite the recession suffered in the steelworks
industry, the experience and knowledge of Duro
Felguera Plantas Industriales, S.A. has aided them to
win an engineering and construction contract for a gasholder for USINOR in Dunkerque. They have also been
awarded the execution of a contract for the SOLAC
Atlantic installations in Dunkerque, consisting of engineering upgrading, development and manufacture of what
can be considered one of the largest “torpedo wagons”
for transporting pig-iron. These have an effective load
capacity of 450 Tn and are more than 35 m in length overall, conferring experience and expectations for similar
projects in the future. For the steel rolling mill belonging
to Aceralia, Avilés, they were awarded the turnkey project
to modify the Temper III mill.
In the civil works for large infrastructures sector, in
2002 Duro Felguera Plantas Industriales, S.A. was awarded the engineering and supply of a complete Back Up
for a Tunnel Boring Machine, a TBM, by MITSUBISHI
HEAVY INDUSTRIES.
The Logistic Systems Unit operating within Duro
Felguera Plantas Industriales, S.A., has managed to gain
three substantial contracts for Nireo Corp. General of
Toledo, Izar in Ferrol and Sika in Madrid, respectively,
with which this unit consolidates its position among the
In the Mining and Handling area, also within Duro
Felguera Plantas Industriales, S.A., the efforts made
to penetrate the North American market were
rewarded. Felguera Parques y Minas, S.A. obtained
a contract for the Port Management at Long Beach,
which consisted of the design, construction, and
supply of ship loading equipment for bulk cargo. On
the domestic market, contracts similarly worth featuring include a circular mineral stockyard and shiploader for HOLCIM, in Almería and the services and
supply contract for “Medusa Phase I”, project belonging to UNION FENOSA, in La Coruña.
During the business year, the Crane Department
was awarded a contract for two overhead cranes by
VA Stahl-Linz, in Austria.
Once again, the Equipment and Erection Business
Line has managed to close the business year with an
excellent order intake, improving by more than 17 % on
the figure forecasted for 2002. The subsidiaries
making up this line of business have made steady
efforts resulting in achieving their objectives of order
intake for the year by a wide margin, and consolidating
their presence in some of the new markets where they
had established strategies, such as in heavy machinery for road infrastructures, railways, energy, large
laboratories, etc.
Felguera Melt, S.A. has surpassed order intake
expectations by almost 20% for 2002, continuing its
trajectory of securing technology and market expansion, sustained by its product developments in railway track materials and components for wind power
generators. The company maintains its position as
one of the leading suppliers of these products in
Europe.
Felguera Construcciones Mecánicas, S.A., has

the Public Works sector. Specifically, in the manufacture of tunnel boring machines, it was awarded a
contract to manufacture two machines by MITSUBISHI HEAVY INDUSTRIES, destined to bore tunnels
on the new high-speed railway lines in Spain. This
experience not only goes to demonstrate once again
the capabilities of Felguera Construcciones
Mecánicas, but also maintains the confidence placed
by the principal technological companies in the sector with new industrial and commercial projects in
their sights. Business in the heat recovery steam
generator sector, in the large European laboratories
and hydraulic generation sectors has continued to be
a keynote for this subsidiary.

line of business, it is notable that the company has been
able to maintain its presence principally in the fields of
power systems, petrochemicals, and steelworks. Its

Duro Felguera México, S.A. de C.V., continues to
lead the way in a sector as relevant as it is the construction and erection of power generation plants in
Mexico whilst at the same time opening up new business opportunities in other sectors, e.g. the
Petrochemical Industry.
Last year order intakes at Duro Felguera México,
S.A. de C.V. continued to increase. The new contracts for the PEMEX Chloride Products Plant and
the SOLUZIONA construction and erection contract
for the gas-fired power plant in Naco Nogales were
among its most notable businesses in 2002.

Finally, worth mentioning as proof of the consolidation of Duro Felguera, S.A. in Mexico, is
the investment in a 51% stake of the Mexican
engineering company PYCORSA. This engineering company has been working since 1947 in
both the public and private sectors of the
energy, petrochemical, gas, steelwork, and
mining businesses. It has a solid organisation,
technical and human resources and a notable
presence in the previously mentioned industrial
sectors in Mexico. Pycorsa’s contribution is clearly positive for the already existing organisation
of Duro Felguera, S.A. in Mexico. By adding
engineering to support services in executing and
managing turnkey projects, this undoubtedly
expands possibilities and fields of action, not
only for the organisation in Mexico, but also for
the Subsidiaries in Spain, as it has been the
case in the PEMEX project for the Pajaritos refinery.

STRATEGIC
MEASURES
The Board of Directors of Duro Felguera, S.A., conscious of the changes produced in the business
environment where the Company operates and the previous 1999-2001 Strategy Scheme having expired, after internal debate to establish new ideas, concepts and guidelines, came up with the 20022004 Strategy Scheme.
In order to provide a framework and orientate this Plan, the Board set up a Strategy Committee,
which, after several debate sessions and constant interchanges with the Management team of Duro
Felguera, S.A., defined the Strategy Guidelines. These are sufficiently wide to cover the diverse
aspects of the market and the general objectives that the Scheme had to contemplate. By defining
objectives, tracing models of organisation and management, attending to the market environment
and its development, trying to assure stability of business margins and income, focusing it towards
customer service, and making it both demanding and critical, it is clearly differentiated from the concept of a mere plan of action.
The main Strategy Guidelines orientating the 2002-2004
Scheme are:
| With reference to the various businesses, to bear out
vocation and know how in Plant turnkey construction,
supported by equipment manufacture and the provision
of services, based on progressive specialisation and
concentration on these matters, making the most of the
advantages provided by the current markets and diversifying the business within these markets or in those
which are closely related.
| To fix increase in value for the shareholder as main
objective by sustaining profit, continuing with a balanced policy of self-financing along with stable dividends
and referenced on the capital markets. Contributing to
all of this are the various Business Units with their
know how in safeguard while increasing their productivity and rate of return.
| To re-define the model of adapting organisation to integral management based on the Business Units, making
provisions for business cycles to be covered by growth
and minimising incurred risks in a controlled manner.
| To build up durable alliances with international technological companies in each of the business areas, looking to complement activities and create added value
for the customer.
| To further focus R&D activities towards improving production processes and project execution, development
of management expertise, creation of new products or
improvement of already existing ones, and optimising
the use of applied resources.

ORGANIZATION
& HUMAN RESOURCES
As from 2002, DURO FELGUERA, S.A. is
committed to managing its group of companies
as an ethical and socially responsible organisation by subscribing to the United Nations Global
Compact.
The Global Compact is a platform for companies to encourage and promote good corporate practices, within their respective spheres
of influence, in the areas of human rights,
labour and the environment.
The Global Compact is not a regulatory code
of conduct nor does it have legal force. It is a
voluntary initiative that provides a basis for promoting social responsibility from committed
and creative corporate management.
C.T.LADA (Asturias 1942)
It is based on nine basic principles to reach the objective “a global compact of shared
values and principles, which will give a human face to the global market” (Kofi Annan,
Secretary General to the United Nations). These principles are:
| Human Rights
· Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights within their sphere of influence; and
· Principle 2: make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.
| Labour Standards
· Principle 3: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective
recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
· Principle 4: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
· Principle 5: the effective abolition of child labour; and
· Principle 6: eliminate discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
| Medio Ambiente
· Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
· Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and
· Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies
Company participation in the Global Compact means issuing a statement showing an ethical commitment which has always been present in the internal policies of the Company but
which acquires greater bearing when it is made public and ratified on a global scale in this
third millennium.
As a result of this commitment to responsible management, there were a series of aspects
relating to Organisation and Human Resources that gained priority in 2002.

LABOUR RELATIONS
The year 2002 was marked by an intensive
collective negotiation. Four collective bargaining agreements were signed at Felguera Melt,
S.A., Duro Felguera Plantas Industriales, S.A.,
Felguera Calderería Pesada, S.A. and Felguera
Construcciones Mecánicas, S.A., as well as an
Earnings Agreement in Felguera Montajes y
Mantenimiento, S.A.
These collective bargaining agreements will
be in force until 31.12.2004 (except for the
Felguera Montajes y Mantenimiento, S.A. agreement which will be valid until 31.12.2002 and
the companies that have subscribed to the
Metal Workers agreement which must be
negotiated in 2003).
It is worth pointing out that within the Duro
Felguera Collective Agreements the denominated replacement contracts are gaining more
ground and linked to the strategy plan for staff
planning.
TRAINING
Professional Training:
The Duro Felguera training programs,
which have been in effect in the last few years
within the Vocational Training area, are carried
out at five Training Centres certified by the
Instituto Nacional de Empleo, INEM (National
Employment Service). Courses held are aimed
at the unemployed and fall within the framework of the Plan F.I.P, i.e. Plan de Formación e
Inserción Profesional (Professional Training &
Integration Scheme) and are financed by the
Instituto Nacional de Empleo and by the
European Social Fund.
Of the five Training Centres, two are in
Langreo, two in Gijón and the other (created in
2002) is in the central area of Asturias, on the
Silvota Industrial Estate in Llanera.
The centres are managed and coordinated
by company technicians and specialist courses
are held on the following: boiler making, welding, fitting, machine tools with numerical control, smelting and insulation processes. The
alumni receive practical training and theory
from DURO FELGUERA professionals.
C.T.LADA (Asturias 2002)
These courses are set out in the Annual Cooperation Agreements
that DURO FELGUERA subscribes to on a national scale with the
General Management of the Instituto Nacional de Empleo.
Continuous Training
The Continuous Training Programme developed throughout 2002
has as main objective to improve personnel expertise in order to
subsequently improve competitiveness and production at the different business units on a national and international level. Therefore,
Duro Felguera, S.A. defines a training process that is geared to
achieve, via a learning process:
| Multi-purpose,
| Improvement in quality,
| Innovation in procedures, techniques and technologies, and
| Diversification of professional scopes
The 2002 Training Programme includes the following areas of
priority:
| Graduate Training.
| Labour Health & Safety.
| Quality and Environment.
| Computing.
| Technical and technological areas.
Therefore, the Continuous Training Programme for 2002 carried
out a total of 82 training courses over 34,000 training hours and in
which over 1,300 workers participated.

CORPORATE COMMUNITY
In observance of the principles of the ethical
commitment made by DURO FELGUERA, S.A., in
subscribing to the Global Compact in 2002, the
Annual Duro Felguera Prize was set up for “Duro
Felguera Employee of the Year”. The objective is
to acknowledge those workers who have stood
out during their career, in a single, notable act or
for excellence in human, ethical and professional
values orientated towards improving the working
environment, their surroundings and Company
progress.
The first prize last year was awarded to Mr.
Fernando Argüelles Pando, member of staff at
Felguera Montajes y Mantenimiento, S.A., whose
professionalism, constant research, creativity,
dedication and humanity have been, among
others, the values praised by more that 250 of his
colleagues, and whose signatures came from all
over Spain to second his candidature for this
prize. The JURY, made up of employees from the
various subsidiaries, in turn acknowledged these
values and on 11 December 2002 they decided to
award him with the Employee of the Year Prize
for 2002.
The prize was given in December at a ceremony in which the Gold Awards for Service were
also presented. These went to Mr. José Ramón
Gutiérrez Ceñera (Felguera Calderería Pesada,
S.A.) and Mr. Pedro Manuel Antuña Suárez
(Felguera Construcciones Mecánicas, S.A.). Also
presented were the Prizes for the II ANNUAL

MARKETING
& DEVELOPMENT
Following the plans traced and as a complement to
our growing business in Mexico, the engineering business had to be reinforced which is why the Mexican engineering company PYCORSA was bought, as previously
mentioned.
The constant search to add technology to our company and the need to further specialise and concentrate
on new markets with our own means of productions, has
led us to reach the necessary agreements to develop and
manufacture Tunnel Boring Machines. Having completed the first phase and after having been contracted to
manufacture two of these machines, led us to sign a
Memorandum of Understanding with the Japanese technological company MITSUBISHI HEAVY INDUSTRIES.
This agreement refers to setting up a joint venture in
Spain in the future aimed at the previously mentioned
market in Europe and Latin America.
Business concerning equipment for high speed railway track material is being developed as well as other
businesses, which are expected to consolidate during
2003.
The agreements with 53 Agents working in 31 countries
remain in force for any of our subsidiaries, on four continents. To add to these, a non-exclusive Agent has been
incorporated in Chile where the economic stability, industrial growth and ever greater presence of Spanish companies in the Energy, Civil Works and Communications sectors, as well as prospections made in this area are more
than sufficient grounds to take an interest in this market.
Our offices and subsidiaries in USA, India, Brazil,
Venezuela, and Mexico have carried on regardless with
their marketing task for all of the companies that go to
make up Duro Felguera, S.A.
The Development activities carried out from Duro
Felguera, S.A. over 2002 were focussed mainly on the
analysis of the different opportunities which the market
situation has allowed to explore in the sense of evaluating strategically and financially the advantages of investing in companies. This has led to the possibility in the
short-term of participating in companies whose business
activities are similar to ours or that have their own markets.
INVESTMENTS
Quality, cost reduction and assurance of delivery
schedules have been, among others, the main objectives
that have justified the investments made during 2002.
Significant volumes of investment were required to maintain operability and modernise our industrial installa-
tions and workshop machinery. In addition, adhering to
the policy of developing engineering and production processes up to date, both hardware and software was
invested in, all of which has meant an approved and executed investment of over 5 million euros, of which the
most noteworthy are as follows:
Felguera Melt, S.A.
The Environment and working conditions are a steady
concern for Felguera Melt, S.A., which is why some of
their main investments are made in equipment to mitigate aggressive effects. Such is the case for the recently
acquired induction equipment to Silica Sands to reduce
the amount of dust at workstations.
Other investments in 2002 were directly made in
improving production processes and capacity, such as
the two recently acquired 100t Silos to store sand or the
Automatic Shotblast machine for parts up to 15 t.
The 3D software for Dynamic Modelling of track components “CoCreate One Space Designer Modelling” also
formed a part of the investments made by Felguera Melt,
S.A. in 2002.
Técnicas de Entibación , S.A., (TEDESA)
In order to diversify markets by incorporating new
products, TEDESA has added a cutting and drilling line
for rolled beams to its production chain, assisted by state
of the art numerical control. This has allowed them to
fulfil the needs of major contracts such as the construction of steel structures for industrial warehouses of large
dimensions or for the manufacture of back ups for
Tunnel Boring Machines belonging to two major technological companies in this field. It has also made other
minor investments to maintain and upgrade its current
production equipment.
Felguera Construcciones Mecánicas, S.A.
Major investments were made in this subsidiary to
improve and extend manufacturing processes. Of note is
the new machining lathe, an automatic welding robot,
and a Helium leakage detector. In addition, several
modifications and modernisation of existing machine
equipment was made to guarantee operability and increase capacity.
Felguera Calderería Pesada, S.A.
The nature of the Felguera Calderería Pesada, S.A.
production process requires constant renovation of production equipment and the update of work techniques
and procedures to adapt to quality and profitability. With
this aim in mind, some of the main investments made by
this subsidiary in 2002 were in acquiring a skid for large
41
123456 7/8/03 09:56 Página 42
parts, a new oxy-cut machine, various welding machines,
tools, ancillary manufacturing and transport equipment,
and modifications to infrastructures.
Felguera Tecnologías de la Información, S.A.
This is a subsidiary undergoing rapid expansion and
with a promising future. It has to necessarily invest periodically in developing its activity in the computing and
applied computing sector. To meet its demands for space,
quality and image improvement, it has made a significant
investment in constructing a building on the Parque
Tecnológico de Asturias (Asturias Technological Estate) in
Llanera, which will be its headquarters as from
September 2003.
The other investments made during 2002 were spread
throughout the various subsidiaries and business units
destined to modernise and adapt technology equipment
(hardware and software), tools, machinery and basic
infrastructures, among others.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
It has become usual over the past few years and certainly no different in 2002, that several R&D projects are
developed by the subsidiaries in Duro Felguera, S.A.
These works are generally destined to improve the quality of products and services offered on the market or to
optimise manufacturing processes applied in the production of these with the double aim of increasing customer
satisfaction on the one hand, an on the other to have greater options in increasing new market shares. Duro
Felguera, S.A. partly relies on the stable and fluid relations maintained over the years with Public Bodies, both
national and European, who are competent in the area by
means of the different lines of action which, in supporting
the R&D activities in companies, are sponsored by these
Public Bodies.
42
Felguera Melt, S.A.
Development of a casing for an aerogenerator made
out of one smelted piece instead of the traditional
method of design and manufacture by mechanised welding. This is being done in collaboration with Gamesa
Eólica, S.A. and Oviedo University.
Design and development of a prototype crossovers
with mobile heads installed on a diagonal for Metro
Madrid, S.A.
Felguera Calderería Pesada, S.A.
Of note for their incidence on improvement of productivity and cost, the following projects developed by this
company over 2002 are:
| Weldability Study and Mechanical Properties of
New Consumables for Coated Electrodes Type E8018B2, of application on alloy steels 1 _ Cr _ Mo
used in reactors in the chemical and petrochemical industries.
| Analysis of Productivity Increase by use of 90 mm
wide band in submerged arc welding in pressure
vessels.
| New build up in one sole Layer, of application on
carbon steel materials for alloy type 316L using the
ESW process or SAW process as an alternative.
| Research of the influence on mechanical properties of low temperature impact and increase in
hardness of deposited metal and on the ZAT as a
consequence of the reduction of the amount of
time during the post-welding heat treatment, compulsory in the manufacture of pressure vessels of
large diameter and thicknesses below 50 mm,
using 2 _ Cr-1Mo type materials.
| ECOPRESS: Economic and Safe Design of Pressure
Vessels applying new DUPLEX type steels. Project
co-financed by the European Commission.
Duro Felguera continues to maintain a presence as a
noted member of the main decision and design policy
making organisations in the R&D sectors of the region,
such as, FICYT (Foundation for Scientific and
Technological Development), CLUB DE LA INNOVACIÓN
(The Innovation Society), CLUB DE LA CALIDAD (The
Quality Society), ITMA (Technological Institute for
Materials), etc.
The Technological Institute of Materials, ITMA, of
Asturias has participated in all the above projects and
studies.
Continuing with this policy and given that these types
of projects often surpass the financial year in time,
these R&D projects have continued to be developed,
published and presented whether they are just starting
out, finalised, or realisable in the near future. Some of
these are:
| Project for the Standardisation of Transfer
Mechanisms, which allows for accumulated knowledge and experience in this area to be transformed into competitiveness by simplifying designs
and thereby improving manufacturing costs and the
advantages of unifying spares and maintenance.
Mining & Handling Line
During 2002 the Mining & Handling Line developed
various projects framed within the R&D policy to optimise to the maximum its competitive resources, such as:
123456 7/8/03 09:56 Página 43
| INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITES & STRATEGIES
| Project for the Standardisation of Conveyor Belt
Drums, with the same objectives as the previously
mentioned project.
| Calculation Programme to Design Transfer
Structures, Bridges and Crane Trolleys, which
allows dimensions and weights to be optimised
and consequently costs.
CORPORATE IMAGE
The purpose of making the company known internally
and to clients, suppliers, shareholders, institutions or
even the social setting where business is developed, is
closely linked with communication capacity. In this sense
Duro Felguera has continued to promote the use of the
channel that Internet affords to its always increasing

FELGUERA PARQUES Y MINAS, S.A.
This subsidiary has made great efforts to penetrate certain markets that up to now were very difficult
to access, characterised for having their own technology or by the consolidated presence of other competitors among other reasons. However, during 2002
these efforts were rewarded as Felguera Parques y
Minas, S.A., competing with major international,
technological companies in the sector, was awarded
the design, manufacture and supply of a bulk cargo
ship loader at Long Beach (USA). This project is
currently being executed and will open up further
opportunities in this market.
123456 7/8/03 09:56 Página 49
Order intake and works in progress
Among others, the following stand out:
| Within the Cement sector, the contract signed for
HOLCIM in Almeria, for the design, manufacture
and supply of a circular mineral yard, including
conveyors and ship loader.
| Of note also, it is the participation in Phase I of the
Medusa Equipment Project, which Unión Fenosa is
carrying out at the port in Corunna and for which
Felguera Parques y Minas has a contract for the
design, manufacture and supply of the silos including car loader, transfer conveyors and transfer
towers. Felguera Parques y Minas has submitted a
bid for Phase II that includes a complete storage
yard. Phase III remains pending and consists of a
shipunloader for which the corresponding bid will
also be presented.
| Considerable efforts have been made over a
period of time to opt for the extension of the
mining complex belonging to Ferrominera del
Orinoco, in Venezuela. In the first phase, a contract was awarded to partially develop the basic
engineering of this project, which offers great
hopes for the future.
| As already mentioned, in 2002, a shiploader of up to
70.000 DWT was awarded for the port at Long
Beach (USA). This loader has special technical
characteristics. It is designed to manage two very
different products that demand different treatment;
Sulphur (2.700 Tn/h) requires fire protected transfer systems and electrical equipment and also
environmental protection measures when it is discharged for which a telescopic chute is used. The
other product is Petroleum Coke (2.400 Tn/h) and
for this an innovative system is used to cushion the
fall of the product into the ship’s hold. The mechanism has a telescopic jib with up to 45-metre turning radius.
and containers. Its list of references is extensive and
it has equipment operating in a large number of
countries
Order intake and works in progress
Among others, the following are of special relevance:
| Supply of two 40-ton overhead cranes for internal transport of reels on the Tin Line belonging
to the company Voest Alpine in Linz, Austria.
| The manufacture of two overhead cranes of 30

The Industrial Plants Line has engineering services for its own projects and provide assistance to
other Duro Felguera subsidiaries. Its main advantage is its know-how, gained over many years of
experience, with the addition of high-grade capacity and permanent re-training of the technical
personnel among its employees.
Over the last 10 years, this line has supplied
notable installations and turnkey plants (EPC),
both in Spain and abroad. Among these projects, it
is worth pointing out that in 2002, 50% of the contract signed with PEMEX for a total amount of 7.5
million dollars, the “Chlorinated Products III
Project” in its Pajaritos refinery in Mexico was
carried out. At the same time others of lesser
dimensions were carried out in Europe.

Order intake and works in progress
The following orders and works in progress during 2002
stand out among others:
| For the USINOR steelworks in Dunkirk, a contract
was awarded to develop engineering, construct and
supply a 60.000 m3 gas tank to store gas from Coke
batteries. It is 53 metres in diameter and made up of
three bodies, two of which are mobile.
| For the Aceralia rolling mill in Avilés, it was awarded
a turnkey contract to revamp the Temper Mill III, to go
from 1,016 to 1,300 mm wide strips to be milled. This
project was particular in that the engineering and
manufacturing stages had to be coordinated with the
very tight erection schedule, which had to be done
during a programmed outage of only four weeks.
Despite this difficulty, it was completed satisfactorily.
| The design and manufacture of a torpedo wagon for
the transport of pig iron for the SOLLAC Atlantic
factory in Dunkirk was completed in 2002. This had
special dimensions, a 450t capacity and was more
than 35 m in length.

Technology
Major advances have been made in consolidating products based on JAVA/J2EE technology which were developed in previous years and which now constitute one of
the company’s main strengths. But in 2002 work has also
continued on research and gaining more technological
knowledge required for new projects. Worth mentioning
are the works carried out on the IPSec standard to operate using the Telefónica GPRS communication system.
| A major experience during 2002 and which has
allowed Felguera T. I. to rub shoulders with the
most prestigious European competitors in the sector, was the bid made for the main Pharmacy
Cooperative in Andalusia (CECOFAR), where they
reached the last selection phase with its replacement and traceability software as main advantage.
Order intake and commercial activities:
In its mission to capture, offer and negotiate Logistics
Systems, alongside Duro Felguera Plantas Industriales,
S.A., the work carried out to be finally awarded with the
Distribution Platform for Nireo Corporación in NoblejasToledo to the value of 3 million euros is highly commendable.
| Within the information and management systems
area, commercial activities have been spread out
over the different lines of products: Integralia©
(ERP) with contracts awarded by; El Rodamiento,
Cerámicas del Principado, Derlain, etc.; la
Automatización de Fuerza de Ventas. In addition,
applications for mobile terminals in general
(RF/PDT/PDA) have been implemented for
Distribuciones Arbesú, Efmo, Distribuciones Mapa,
Enri 2000, etc., and with Sales Point Terminals
(Terminales Punto de Venta – TPV) the installation
of a medium sized DIY and Hardware store for
Manuel Bernardo, S.A. in Portugal.
| The Internet projects go from a major extension of
the tourism website “Infoasturias.com” for the
Regional Tourist Board (SRT), through corporate
websites such as Asturiana de Perfumería, NireoFerrobox, and catalogue management systems
such as Ortoibérica, to Network security platforms
for various clients.
| The marketing work carried out, mainly during this
financial year, in conjunction with Duro Felguera
Plantas Industriales, S.A. is worthy of note, to reactivate the bid made to automise the future warehouse of Real Casa de la Moneda (the Royal Mint)
in Madrid. This project of special characteristics is
particularly relevant given the possibility of repeating with other warehouses in the EC.

123456 7/8/03 09:56 Página 54
EQUIPMENT
& ERECTION LINE
Managing Director: Mr. Pedro García Fernández
During the last financial year, the Equipment &
Erection Line belonging to Duro Felguera, S.A. continued to create and deliver first quality products and
services to markets of diverse industrial activity
throughout the world, making the most of the advantages afforded by its installations such as Felguera
Calderería Pesada, S.A., in Gijón. Felguera Calderería
Pesada, S.A is capable of shaping, welding and constructing equipment to the most demanding quality and
design standards, manufacturing in alloy steels and of
almost limitless dimensions given the capacity of its
facilities and the special characteristics of its expediting centres. It has its own dock that is located within
its installations making it possible to carry out complex
expediting by ship.
Within this Line, Felguera Construcciones Mecánicas, S.A., the mechanical/welding factory belonging to Duro Felguera in Barros (Langreo), has made
great efforts in 2002 to maintain its activities by entering new markets and
improving on the traditional ones whilst at the same time successfully maintaining its policies of improving on cost, quality and schedule; objectives which
are demanded by the markets where Felguera Construcciones Mecánicas, S.A.
competes, such as the power systems market (hydraulic, fossil-fuelled and
wind), the large multinational laboratories, or the promising turnkey construction of Tunnel Boring Machines for civil works on major infrastructures, where
it has been awarded two important contracts in 2002.
54
123456 7/8/03 09:56 Página 55
Fruit of the efforts made during past years
which were focussed on making new developments and consequently providing greater added
value products by its capacity to attend to more
complex technical and technological requirements, Felguera Melt, S.A., has met its objectives to sustain growth. It is constantly incorporating modern production means to its manufacturing processes and its R&D team takes great
care in obtaining appropriate technologies and
strategic alliances with partners who complement their activities in the specialised markets
where they operate, such as wind power generation or railway track material (crossings and turnouts, basically) for the high speed railway
expansion projects both in Europe, and the
domestic market namely with the development
of the AVE lines.
This line of business also includes two important
service companies Felguera Montajes y Mantenimiento, S.A. and Felguera Revestimientos, S.A.
These two companies have continued to grow, carrying out a complimentary role of significant importance with respect to finalising turnkey projects and cooperating in project commissioning not only for this line
of business but also for Duro Felguera companies
belonging to other lines, i.e. the Power Systems Line,
with whom they have cooperated in the erection and
commissioning of the latest combined cycle power
generation projects. And all of this without abandoning their traditional markets where they have continued to provide their services, i.e. engineering, steelworks, mining, power generation, petrochemicals,
etc.
Growth shown by TEDESA in 2002 is basically due to a reorientation of its commercial
strategies which started in past years and is
geared to new products and equipment for the
construction of public infrastructures and
which are complementary to those of more traditional characteristics (although in constant
innovation) such as mine framing, consolidation
and shoring up of tunnels and trenches. To do
this TEDESA has made significant investments
in modern production equipment and has established decisive commercial agreements by
which it has successfully opted for the manufacture of steel structures for large industrial
buildings and the construction of back-ups for
Tunnel Boring Machines, among other activities
of note.

| Continuing with traditional activities, which have more
than consolidated in the specialised market of heavy
boiler making which is their speciality, by mainly
supplying equipment to the petrochemical industry,
fully dressed and manufactured with their special
capacities: shaping of great thicknesses, of more than
200mm, high technology welding for steel Chrome,
Nickel, Molybdenum and Vanadium alloys, and expedition of pieces and equipment of large dimensions and
weights, directly from its own dock which is integrated
in its facilities and which can be used by several types
of ships: roll on – roll off, self-loaders, barges and floating cranes high enough to undergo ocean voyages.
| It is notable that they have obtained a surplus order
intake over 7% with respect to the forecast at the
beginning of the year despite the adverse conditions of
the international petrochemical sector and the competition offered by companies in certain Southeast
Asia countries. This has once more demonstrated the
capacity of Felguera Calderería Pesada, S. A. to respond and adapt to market environments.
| It is the export capacity of its products that has made
it possible for more than 85% of its contracts to have
come from abroad in 2002, from England, Chile,
Azerbaijan, Norway, Venezuela and Bulgaria, adding
to its already extensive list of references of the most
notable engineering and technological companies,
both national and international working within the
industrial and petrochemical sectors.
To sum up, the main contracts awarded to Felguera
Calderería Pesada, S.A. in 2002 were, among others:
| Various gas-crude oil separators for a refinery in
Azerbaijan.
| A set of reactors for Foster Wheeler for the PETROX
refinery in Chile.
123456 7/8/03 09:56 Página 57
| Also awarded by Foster Wheeler was the revamping of
an FCC unit at a refinery in Bulgaria.
| An FCC reactor for PDVSA in Venezuela.
| For Linde and destined for an installation in Norway, the
construction of several pressure vessels.
Of the works carried out in 2002, worth pointing out are:
| Within the package awarded by the Ameriven Group in
Venezuela, the manufacture of a vacuum column of 12
metres in diameter.
| The construction for Halliburton in the U.K. of 11 separators for a B.P. Exploration refinery in Azerbaijan.
These works were performed along with the process
design engineering which were included in the scope of
the contract
| The construction of 4 Unicracking reactors, made of
alloy steel Cr-Mo-V for the PETROX refinery in Chile.
Training
Mindful of the high value placed on the human factor,
Felguera Calderería Pesada, S.A., the same as other Duro
Felguera business units, has spared no material or economic expense to continue training and professionally updating its personnel, always conscious of the fact that well
trained and motivated personnel increase resource values
and achieve high rates of performance.
With this aim in mind and making the most of the professional training centre within its installations (certified by
the National Employment Agency), in 2002 Felguera
Calderería Pesada, S.A. organised an extensive Welding
course. A screening process established that 15 professionals were eligible for the course of 924 man-hours, and
Duro Felguera, S.A. made the commitment to employ 60%
of those who successfully finished the course.
The usual internal courses to update its own personnel
were carried out in 2002, not only for labourers but also
middle management and administration staff, paying special attention to Safety at Work.
R&D Activities
Of the activities carried out by Felguera Calderería Pesada,
S. A., in the field of Research and Development, and in which
the Asturias Technological Institute of Materials (ITMA) participated, the following stand out:

in ES welding of pressure vessels.
New build up in one sole Layer, of application on carbon
steel materials for alloy type 316L using the ESW process or
SAW process as an alternative.
Investigation of the influence on mechanical properties of
low temperature impact and increase in hardness of deposited
metal and on the ZAT as a consequence of the reduction of the
amount of time during the post-welding heat treatment, obligatory in the manufacture of pressure vessels of large diameter and thicknesses below 50 mm, using 2 _ Cr-1Mo type
materials.

TEDESA
Managing Director: Mr. Carlos Ruiz Cornejo
The traditional market of underground mining and especially in the Asturias region, has suffered considerable decreases over the last few years that were accentuated in 2002. TEDESA had already taken
steps to reorient its business by focussing on two main activities; firstly to obtain the means and conditions necessary to manufacture new products and secondly to enter new markets with these products.
Consequently, promoting and marketing efforts outside Asturias and strategic agreements to develop
technologies needed to be increased. These efforts are already proving effective and they have contributed to the fact that TEDESA reached a considerable turnover figure in 2002, amply surpassing the established budget.
The investments made in modern production units have provided the option of manufacturing structural elements and equipment for diverse sectors of industry, such as structures for industrial buildings or
auxiliary equipment for large public works machines (tunnel boring machines) and above all the manufacture of formworks for tunnels, placing the company in an excellent position on the market.

The incorporation of new production methods
has allowed new markets to be explored in the
building and industrial structure sectors by
focussing mainly on heavy machinery components of large dimensions whilst marketing of
traditional products continues at the same time.
Already incorporated into the production process
are the new lattice girders, which as they grip to
shotcrete with ease and with their weight characteristics and resistance, are being particularly
successful on the market. The same goes for the
formwork equipment developed and manufactured by TEDESA.
| Manufacture and supply of formworks for tunnels for the MONTORNÉS joint venture.

In a sector where contractual demands are highly
stringent, as is the power generation sector, where
equipment, work quality and compliance to schedules
are directed towards quick and effective plant operation, a company like MOMPRESA is essential. This
company not only supports Duro Felguera Energía in its
new projects, but also with its ample experience and
knowledge of the market, it has become a leading company in the erection and overhaul of power island, working on major power generation plants in Spain, Latin
America and other countries in Europe.
By adding OPEMASA, Duro Felguera Energía reinforces its already diverse capabilities to deal with power
generation plant construction projects as main contractor, widening its scope to include Operation and
Maintenance services.
Below is a summary of the main works carried out
by this Line throughout 2002.
DURO FELGUERA, S.A., ENERGÍA
The activities carried out by DURO FELGUERA
ENERGÍA in 2002 to further develop their business are
fundamentally based on its experience and on widening
its capacity. It has continued to explore new business
opportunities within the power market, as is the case
with the future projects to adapt traditional coal fired
power generation plants to environmental legislation,
supported by their more than sufficient experience and
the major technological companies in the sector. Duro
Felguera Energía, always within its field of specialisation, has continued to maintain its presence in other
123456 7/8/03 09:57 Página 67
countries such as Portugal, Peru and Mexico where it has participated in various bids, which are soon expected to materialise.
Also worth mentioning are the works carried out last year
to finalise some of the projects awarded in previous years in
which other Duro Felguera business lines have cooperated
such as Felguera Construcciones Mecánicas, S.A. in manufacture and supply of the heat recovery steam generators (HRSG)
among others, Felguera Montajes y Mantenimiento, S.A.,
MOMPRESA and OPEMASA with electromechanical erection,
commissioning assistance and operation of the new power
generation plants.

Works Executed or ongoing
During 2002, Duro Felguera México continued with its
work and finalised some of the major contracts that were
already in progress. It has continued with those contracts
already awarded and in development such as:
| Finalisation and start-up of the 330 Mw combined
cycle plant in Valle de México for Alstom.
| In the traditional coal fired sector, Duro Felguera
México continued with the electromechanical erection works for the 520 MW Power Plant at Tamuin.
Significant Contracts obtained in 2002
The local part of the PEMEX contract for the extension
to 400.000 t./year of the Pajaritos chloride derived products
plant was awarded to Duro Felguera México in 2002 and
civil works have already commenced. The main contract
had previously been awarded to Duro Felguera, S.A. The
execution conditions of this contract pose an interesting
challenge, as it requires exhaustive programming, experience and capacity due to the fact that it must be executed
whilst the current plant is in operation and without creating any interference.
Within the power industry sector, of significance is the
contract for Unión Fenosa, Soluziona to execute mechanical erection of the whole plant, and the supply and erection
of BOP piping at the 335 MW de Naco-Nogales gas-fired
power plant.
