SENER will present its latest ship projects at the 2018 Asia Pacific Maritime Exhibition in Singapore09/03/2018
The Engineering and Technology group SENER will be present at the 15th edition of the Asia Pacific Maritime (APM) Exhibition, which will be held from 14 to 16 March 2018 at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. SENER will participate in this event as part of the Spain Pavilion, organised by the public business entity, ICEX Spain Exportación e Inversiones, whose mission is to promote the internationalization of Spanish companies.
At the exhibition, SENER will showcase its latest ship projects, including the project involving the supply of LNG to ships (Ship to Ship) and to land (Ship to Shore), powered by liquefied natural gas, with capacities of 5,000, 5,500, 7,500 and 8,000 cubic meters, a new concept with a high market demand, in which SENER stands out for its innovation. It will also present other projects including passenger vessels, Ro-Ro cargo vessels, fishing vessels, tugboats and working vessels, among others.
In addition, SENER will demonstrate the latest developments in its FORAN digital shipbuilding system, in particular the capacity for the early design stage in 3D and the new virtual reality applications used in the marine sector, aspects where FORAN is at the forefront. SENER has carried out intense commercial activity in this area for decades.
APM is a biennial exhibition that constitutes the main meeting point for many sectors, including design, naval construction and equipment, oil transport and storage, offshore operations (oil and liquefied natural gas), ships and boats, maritime safety, etc. It is an especially interesting forum for companies belonging to the following sectors: those related to the naval industry, the design and construction of ships and offshore facilities, naval equipment and equipment and services for ports.
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.[+]
