Projects and programs
SENER participates in R&D projects, some of which fall within regional, national and European innovation programs
With the effort focused on digitalization, during 2019 SENER has developed its R&D&I activity in projects such as the development of the SIROM standard robotic interface for space applications; RESPIRA®, a new intelligent system for ventilation management on underground systems; the development of SENER Digital Plant, the objective of which is the remote monitoring of data from industrial plants for the creation of new business models from Operation and Maintenance (O&M); or improvements to the FORAN system, machine learning components, artificial intelligence, analysis and treatment of Big Data.
RESPIRA®, an example of the digital transformation in SENER
RESPIRA® combines Artificial Intelligence and Big Data to contribute to social improvement through a service. It covers all parts of the automatic process, from data collection, using sensors with IoT technology, to intelligent action on the infrastructure’s ventilation equipment. The solution is hosted in a Cloud environment, making use of Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence tools for the visualisation and correlation of the data.
SENER’s patents cover all of the company’s business areas, from satellite-based multimedia communication systems and crosswind protection systems for high-speed trains, to noise reduction conduits for static components of aeronautical engines, a docking system for spacecraft and a molten salt central receiver for solar power plants, along with numerous innovations in the field of thermosolar power and techniques for the design and analysis of virtual prototypes for the marine industry.
