Unlike Wallonia, confronted with annual budgeting, SOFICO can, in a very short time, liberate the resources needed to build infrastructures.
SOFICO’s revenue comes from different sources :
- Traffic: revenue from the right to use the structuring network via per-kilometre charges for heavy goods vehicles and payments from the Walloon Region on behalf of users (shadow toll), and the use of the waterways
- Concessions (motorway service areas, telecommunications, hydroelectric power plants, wind turbines, etc.)
Moreover, SOFICO can also obtain other types of funding :
- Loans from the European Investment Bank
- Subsidies from the European Union, via Structural Funds or specialised funds
