SENER: wind, sun and moon
Three recent news from SENER give an opportunity to talk about two important business sectors of the engineering and construction multinational company whose Catalan branch is headquartered in the Barcelona Synchrotron Park: the energy sector and the aerospace sector.

The thermo solar plant in Kathu (South Africa) with a 100 MW installed capacity, built by SENER and ACCIONA Industrial, came into commercial operation on last January 30. The plant incorporates a molten salt system that can store solar heat and generate electricity in the absence of solar radiation.

On the other hand, SENER has recently announced that the company will be involved in a large floating offshore wind farm currently under construction by COBRA 15 km off the Scottish coast of Aberdeen. SENER contribution includes, among other things, the supervision of the floating platforms manufacture and the technical feasibility analysis of the wind turbines assembly. With a 50 MW nominal power, this project is expected to be operational by 2020, making it the largest floating offshore wind farm in the world.

Last but not least, SENER has just been awarded  five contracts for the development phase of a future space station in lunar orbit within the framework of the Gateway project called to become the next international space station whose construction is planned for the 2020s (see image).

Congratulations!
