Engineering firm SENER group has received the FINE award in the category of “Outstanding Marine Engineering Project” for its HiveWind offshore platform solution.

The Manager of SENER Marine, Roberto Fernández, received the prize at the International Shipbuilding and Maritime Industry Trade Fair, which took place this week in Vigo, Spain.

Commenting on the award, Roberto Fernández said in a statement: “We are grateful for FINE Awards acknowledgement for SENER’s effort in the development of Hive Wind, a highly competitive and innovative product through which we endeavor to boost offshore wind energy, the implementation of which is essential to the fight against climate change.”

HiveWind is a semi-submersible floating steel platform for offshore wind turbines with an output in excess of 15MW. The concept was developed by SENER and marketed by SENER Renewable Investments together with the Amper group, through its subsidiary Nervión Naval-Offshore.

The HiveWind prototype is currently being developed and is in the basic engineering phase.

According to Miguel Domingo, CEO of SENER Renewable Investments: “The forecasts for the development of floating platforms for offshore wind turbines are very high in Europe and elsewhere; in Europe alone, a market of about 300GW in offshore wind is expected for 2050, of which 30% may be floating, a figure that could be equivalent to about 5,000 or 6,000 accumulated units.

“Thanks to its presence in several activity sectors, ranging from energy to marine engineering and infrastructure, SENER has a technical team comprising engineers of many specialties and highly prepared for this challenge that we hope to be part of.”

The FINE awards are held annually by Peldaño Media Group in order to foster social recognition for companies, institutions and professionals in the marine sector, and raise awareness of their work at the service of Spanish society and the marine industry.
