New Delhi: Infosys Wednesday said it will set up new centres in Croatia and Russia to expand global service delivery network into Europe.
Infosys, which has signed an agreement to provide engineering services to thermoelectric power plants producer Ansaldo Energia, will support the entity through the development centres in Karlovac, Croatia and Moscow, Russia.
Infosys will deliver research and development service delivery and capabilities, along with engineering services to the enlarged Ansaldo Energia business, it said in a statement.
The facilities will have an initial combined capacity of up to 180 seats and operate as centres of excellence for engineering skills in turbo machinery, aerospace and automotive, it added.
No financial details were disclosed.
The centres will initially be staffed by engineers that bring to Infosys extensive experience previously gained while they were part of Alstom.
Infosys and Alstom have been working together in areas of global research and development (R&D), engineering and engineering IT services for developing solutions for the power sector.
"The establishment of centers in Croatia and Russia enables us to tap into a rich pool of engineering talent and bring this to the industrial and manufacturing companies that we work with around the world," Infosys President and Global Head Manufacturing, Retail, CPG and Logistics Sandeep Dadlani said.
