Integration and Test facilities at SENER Madrid

SENER has high-tech facilities and resources that help it to create innovations, as they allow prototypes to be integrated, tested, qualified and classified.

  • Cleanrooms. SENER has cleanrooms of different classes with strictly controlled environments in which it assembles and tests equipment for special applications, such as those required in the areas of Space, Aeronautics, Defense, Healthcare Technology, etc.
  • Integration and Testing Center. In this center, dedicated to organized and flexible production of actuator and control systems, the following activities are carried out: incoming inspection; reception and storage management; mechanical and electronic integration; quality control; functional, thermal, and vibration testing; packaging; and shipping.

 

 

 

To provide additional support, SENER also has the following resources:

  •  Library of specialist software for technical applications and project control.
  • Documentation service with more than 65,000 technical standards, 35,000 books, 550 journals and access to the main databases.

All the procedures that SENER carries out at its facilities are subject to strict controls in accordance with its quality, safety and environment management system.
