SENER awarded

AINE, the Association of Naval Architects of Spain, has awarded its prize for "Best company in the profession" to the SENER engineering and technology group at the 2018 AINE Awards.

SENER was founded as a marine engineering company and, although it soon diversified into other areas of activity - Aerospace, Energy, Environment and Engineering (in the Infrastructure and Energy sectors) - it remains true to its founding principle, marine engineering. Today, SENER has one of the most commercialised design and construction software packages in the world, the FORAN System, which turned 50 in 2015 and continues to be used in ship engineering projects.

Among its reasons for recognising SENER, AINE noted several projects, such as engineering an LNG bunkering unit (tugboat + barge) (powered by liquefied natural gas), which is the first in the world of its kind; the development of prototype vessels and solutions in the field of renewable energies; the use of FORAN in the most complex European naval engineering project of the 21st century, the "Dreadnought" ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) for the Royal Navy, as well as the use of FORAN in the most technologically sophisticated marine projects in Spain.
