They sign a partnership agreement focused on areas such as energy transition.

The Sener engineering and technology group and the Tekniker technology centre have signed a partnership agreement whose ultimate goal is to boost R&D in the industry by addressing several strategic areas such as hydrogen or digitisation.   

Thanks to this agreement, Sener will now be included on a list featuring other leading companies that are currently collaborating with Tekniker. It will also serve to strengthen a historic relationship that both companies have maintained over the years in a number of projects mainly related to renewable energies.   

Òscar Julià, Sener’s director for Innovation and Digitisation pointed out that “this agreement is yet another step in this solid strategy implemented by Sener that is  not only focused on open innovation as it will allow collaborative work to be carried out with other organisations so that they can mutually complement and reinforce each other”.  

Luis Uriarte, general manager of Tekniker, has also underscored the importance of this partnership as the end result of an extensive and close collaboration that “must be maintained  much more efficiently so it can deliver more value to Sener and also fulfil our mission with regard to transferring technology to our environment”.   

Uriarte also adds that “it is a great honour for our organisation to see that Sener, a leading engineering firm in the Basque Country, Spain and abroad will now play a role as a collaborative firm.  

From hydrogen to digitisation  

Thanks to this agreement, Tekniker will provide all the knowledge and expertise required by Sener to progress along different lines of research involving green hydrogen or digitisation in some of the most relevant areas.   

Some  of the fields to be addressed are offshore wind technologies, the management of hybrid and renewable energy plants, sustainable mobility, smart cities, digital models for mechatronic systems and the pooling of methodologies and procedures required to certify medical devices.   

Cooperative actions, moreover, are currently underway with regard to developing and transferring research talent via training programmes to meet Sener’s principal requirements and demands in terms of specialised staff.
