SENER also has extensive experience in urban integration projects for new high-speed lines and for railway stations and terminals. Among these, recent projects which deserve mention include the new Valencia Central Station (Spain), or the Sol suburban intermodal central station in Madrid(Spain), which is the largest urban cavern in soils planned in the world. (This project won the 2009 "Best Public Work of the Year Prize" awarded by the Spanish Civil Engineers College.)
The Congress will also be a forum for SENER to show off its technological advances in the high-speed railroad sector, which are applied in lines currently in operation, such as a very-short-term (less than 10 minutes) crosswind prediction system and a safety system for automatically adopting measures to minimize the associated risks. Also on display will be the company's innovative aerodynamic studies, such as studies to analyze the flying ballast phenomenon and measures to reduce it. In addition to these technological advances, other projects will be on display, including IF-Zone, which SENER carried out together with the Spanish railway infrastructure administrator ADIF and which involves managing neutral zones in the high-speed rail power supply system, and Blocksat, an innovative railway traffic management system for low-volume lines based on satellite location, inertial navigation and mobile communications.
As a technology firm, SENER is fully focused on innovation, which is one of its main business pillars. Proof of this is the recognition it has received through numerous awards over its history, some as important as the Spanish Príncipe Felipe Award for Excellence in Business or the prestigious European Business Award.
Its proven track record means that SENER has a renowned reliability for tackling technologically complex jobs where it can provide added value in engineering, railway, mobility and urban transport solutions and in all forms of civil engineering.
