SENER celebrated the inauguration of its facilities in Manchester, the Group’s base for its Engineering and Construction area in the United Kingdom, which have been fully operational since 2014, in an event attended by local authorities including City Mayor Ian Stewart and representatives from key clients such as BAE Systems and Babcock. The guests were received on behalf of SENER by its Marine General Manager, Rafael de Góngora, and the Manager of its Marine office in Manchester, Fernando Sánchez.

During the event, Rafael de Góngora highlighted the importance the SENER Group gives to maintaining a permanent presence in the United Kingdom, both for the engineering and construction projects SENER executes in the country through the Manchester office, and for the work performed under aeronautics contracts by ITP, from its centers in Whetstone (Leicester), Lincoln, Rugby, York and West Sussex. He added that the profile of the United Kingdom is one of strategic ground for SENER, thanks to the close to 200 British professionals which are part of the SENER group and because of the country’s highly technological tradition.

SENER uses Manchester as a base for working on projects such as the ongoing construction of two Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carriers for the Royal Navy, using FORAN, its CAD/CAM/CAE software for the design and construction of ships and offshore structures. FORAN is also the system employed in the Successor series of new nuclear submarines and the Type 26 frigates, both for the Royal Navy.

Together with the aforementioned activity in Aeronautics through ITP, SENER performs other projects in the field of Engineering and Construction in the Aerospace sector, in which it works as a supplier for British companies. It is also investigating potential contracts in Power, Oil & Gas and in Infrastructures and Transport, specially in high speed.
