SENER organizes a series of FORAN seminars at the Croatian universities of Split and Rijeka14/02/2018 (Croatia)
The SENER engineering and technology group organized two technical seminars on the FORAN System between January 29 and February 1 at the Croatian universities of Split and Rijeka.
The objective of these technical sessions, which are part of the agreement signed by SENER with both universities to extend the use of its FORAN marine design and production system, is to exchange knowledge between different industry agents as well as providing students with training.
The four sessions, held on January 29 and 30 in Split and January 31 and February 1 in Rijeka, were attended by numerous professionals from the most relevant marine design and shipbuilding sector companies in the area, such as Navis, Havyard, Brodotrogir, Ximar, Armanija, and Mardesign. Leading academics from the field of marine engineering and students from the universities also took part in the seminars.
SENER presented the functions of the FORAN solution for Initial Design and, in particular, for performing Naval Architecture calculations (definition of hull forms, loading conditions and intact and damage stability calculations). The seminars also served to show the new developments included in the latest version of FORAN V80.
The ESA has signed a contract with SENER to expand development work on one of its innovations for in-Space propulsion, the helicon plasma thruster (HPT), designed as part of a joint R&D project The ESA has signed a contract with SENER to expand development work on one of its innovations for in-Space propulsion, the helicon plasma thruster (HPT), designed as part of a joint R&D project with the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M). The helicon plasma thruster is an innovative technology for electric in-Space propulsion that could be a competitive alternative to the current thruster technologies, as it can provide optimum levels of propulsion performance for certain space missions, especially onboard full electric spacecrafts....
