The President of SENER, Jorge Sendagorta, has been one of the ten finalists in the ‘European CEO’ award in the European CEO Awards. These awards are given by the British organization Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE), which brings together more than 650 engineering and consulting companies from around the world in the UK. The awards took place the evening of Tuesday, November 8, at the Grosvenor House hotel in London, and each of the finalists received a diploma.
This distinction is in addition to the recent “Managing for Growth’ award, which was presented to Mr. Sendagorta in October by CEDE (Confederación Española de Directivos y Ejecutivos, the Spanish Confederation of Managers and Executives). Both awards recognize the company’s continual investment in innovation and development. SENER, which was founded in 1956, has since made innovation a fundamental pillar of its business model from the very beginning.
SENER is an engineering and technology group involved in the areas of Aeronautics, Energy and Environment, and Engineering. It is internationally known for its commitment to quality, innovation, and its independence. In the Engineering field, SENER is a benchmark company in the Aerospace, Power and Process, Infrastructures and Transport, and Marine Engineering sectors. Its outstanding participation in these four business sectors further distinguishes SENER as the leading Spanish multidisciplinary engineering company. Thus, the company contributes innovative solutions and allocates an investment of around 10% of its working hours to R&D.
Through its Aeronautics Area, SENER participates in consortiums such as the Industria de Turbopropulsores ITP (the only Spanish aeronautical engines and gas turbines company, which SENER helped found in 1984 and is currently the primary stockholder), as well as Hisdesat and Galileo Sistemas y Servicios.
Additionally, through the Energy and Environment Area, SENER has promoted projects where it has further involvement through its contributions of technology, renewable energy, and recycling of energy waste, such Zabalgarbi, Tracjusa, Valpuren Comatur, Valpuren Bañuelo and Torresol Energy. This last company, a joint venture created together with Masdar, has as its objective the promotion of the technical development, construction, operation, and maintenance of large concentrated solar power plants worldwide.
