Jorge Sendagorta Gomendio
President of SENER Group
We are currently enjoying a good cash situation which, coupled with the enormous potential of our people, will enable us to once again re-invent SENER, and to continue to make investments that will lead us to even more prominent positions within the engineering sector.
We face the unique and exciting challenge of developing SENER, of making SENER even better. SENER is all about team work.

AS AN OBJECTIVE
A record year for SENER in Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)
of clean energy
put into operation
More than 1 billion euros invested in thermosolar projects
The consolidation of all Space activities, the strengthening of our division in Poland, the significant push that is expected to materialize from the Defense wing, and SENER’s entry into the largest satellite constellations are just some of the upcoming major challenges for SENER Aerospace to overcome.
For another year running, SENER has met its target of increasing the number of projects in regions where it has a permanent base. In addition, in 2018 SENER continued to offer the market a range of technologically unique products.
In the short term, aside from offering innovative engineering services and technological packages (as part of our new product approach), some of our prospects will depend on us seizing opportunities in new areas such as offshore wind power, energy storage or hybridization, or the implementation of fast power projects or floating solutions (power barge).
SENER has contributed to the consolidation of FORAN as a leading system within the field of military shipbuilding, in addition to having increased its use among the new users who were brought on board during 2018. The latest version released, v80r3.0, together with the development of its own concept Astillero 4.0, have helped FORAN to maintain its key role in the digital evolution of the sector.
THE NEXT IMPOSSIBLE
Allocated resources in R&D: 21.2 million euros
SENER forged ahead with technological developments for solar thermal power plants, the implementation of the BIM (Building Information Modeling) methodology, in the research of new propulsion systems for satellites and dedication to digitization has been intensified through the development of Shipyard 4.0.
