Another participation of SENER in ASNE Day08/04/2015 (United States)
For third consecutive year, SENER has participated in the 2015 edition of the ASNE Day, the yearly Congress and Exhibition, organized by the American Society of Naval Engineers from the United States. Like years before, the venue was located in Arlington, close to Washington DC, and in this case it happened during the last 4th and 5th of February. The event gathers a good number of the most relevant naval shipyards and companies around, all from the United States, that want to learn about the news in the naval shipbuilding industry, both in the technical presentations and in the exhibition area, where SENER had a stand.
SENER presented the latest developments from its FORAN System, so as the services around the marine engineering and ship design. It is to be highlighted the capability from the FORAN System for the Initial Design stage and the transition to the later stages, in a seamless process that allows to complete the ship from the moment in which the main parameters are set, to the last production drawing.
FORAN, an advanced system extended in the naval field worldwide, is used by companies such as BAE Systems in the UK, NAVANTIA in Spain or Severnoye DB in Russia. Widely known and respected in North America, Eastern Shipbuilding Group in Florida is a good example of a company that rely on FORAN.
SENER is developing an intensive commercial activity in North America, where it is offering innovative approaches to the new demands. Verónica Alonso, North America Area Manager in SENER Marine, and Antonio Valderrama, FORAN engineer Consultor, attended the event from SENER.
With this facility, the world's three main space agencies, ESA, Roscosmos and NASA, all have MARES training models for on-land training of astronauts before flying to the ISS, where the definitive system is installed.... [+]
