Its key projects include the metros of Algiers, Los Angeles, Bangalore, Bilbao, Bogotá, Chennai, Dubai, Doha, Guadalajara, Hanoi, Lisbon, Madrid, Oran, Panama, Santiago de Chile and São Paulo. In addition to this are its driverless systems or driverless Unattended Train Operation (UTO), such as the Barcelona Metro line 9, and the light rail and trams in Abu Dhabi, Dublin, Kaohsiung, Lusail, Porto, Oran, Tenerife and Valencia. Equally noteworthy are the monorail, the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), People Mover, passenger trains, both conventional and high-speed, and freight and mixed traffic, including the Figueras (Spain) – Perpignan (France) cross-border high-speed connection. SENER offers comprehensive engineering services (design, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance) in all these areas.
SENER executes works to integrate new high-speed lines into the urban environment, as well as stations and rail terminals, with references such as Los Angeles Union Station (California), La Sagrera Station in Barcelona (Spain), the Puerta del Sol Transport Interchange in Madrid (Spain), which is the world’s largest excavated chamber in a high density urban area.
Due to this expertise, SENER has a complete and integrated perspective on how transport systems are developed, which allows the company to be involved in every phase, from planning to design, construction and operation of the line, and the ability to cover every technical function using SENER’s own experienced staff.
The group has also earned itself a strong international reputation as a designer and supplier of Intelligent Transport Systems that incorporate high-tech solutions, such as the STElec software for rail traction power simulations; Blocksat, a program for the management of railway operations for low-traffic lines, based on satellite positioning; inertial navigation and mobile communications; the lateral flight prediction system patented by SENER; and Aerotraviesa®, a sleeper design that minimizes flying ballast, which SENER played a key role in developing in collaboration with Adif and other organizations.
