Sener and Tekniker join forces to boost the energy transition and digitisation of industry
They have signed a collaboration agreement that will focus on areas such as energy transition.
The engineering and technology group Sener and the technology centre Tekniker have signed a collaboration agreement to jointly promote R&D in different strategic areas such as hydrogen and the digitalisation of industry.
The signing of the agreement, which makes Sener a new member of Tekniker’s list of collaborating entities, consolidates the relationship that both organisations have historically maintained through different projects related mainly to renewable energies.
“This agreement is another step in Sener’s strategy of open innovation, working collaboratively with other entities to complement and reinforce each other”, said Òscar Julià, Sener’s Director of Innovation and Digitalisation.
For his part, Luis Uriarte, CEO of Tekniker, stressed the importance of the alliance as the result of a long and close collaboration and with the aim of “maintaining it in a much more effective way and providing greater value to Sener, while fulfilling our mission of technology transfer to the environment”.
“It is an honour for us that Sener, a benchmark engineering company both in the Basque Country and nationally and internationally, has become one of our collaborating entities”, said Uriarte.
From hydrogen to digitalisation
Thanks to this agreement, Tekniker will provide Sener with knowledge and experience to advance in different lines of research, with green hydrogen and digitalisation as some of the areas of greatest interest.
Technologies for offshore wind power, management of hybrid and renewable energy plants, sustainable mobility and smart cities, the generation of digital models of mechatronic systems and the sharing of methodologies and procedures for the approval of medical devices are some of the other fields they seek to cover.
In addition, they will work cooperatively in the development and transfer of research talent through training programmes that respond to Sener’s main needs and demands in terms of specialised personnel.
