SENER signs a contract with Samsung in Mexico for the modernization of the Salamanca oil refinery
The engineering and technology group SENER has signed a contract with Samsung Ingeniería for the development of a ULSD (Ultra-Low-Sulfur Diesel) project to modernize the Salamanca oil refinery in the Mexican state of Guanajuato. As part of their modernization plan to produce clean fuels, the state-owned petroleum company Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) awarded Samsung the contract in September 2014.

As a result of this agreement, SENER will perform the detailed engineering for the modernization of units already in place and their integration with facilities outside battery limits.

SENER was awarded taking into account its excellent work in a previous project involving the hydrodesulfurization units at PEMEX’s Tula and Salamanca oil refineries, where it performed the basic and extended basic engineering, and for its proven internal capability as demonstrated by its Power and Process division, which has worked on other important projects from the sector such as the combined cycle plant Agua Prieta II, the TG-8 Madero oil refinery co-generation project, the CYDSA co-generation plants, the Frontera and Los Ramones compression stations, the Alpek 95 MW co-generation facilities in Cosoleacaque in Veracruz and the fluid catalytic cracking unit in the La Cangrejera petrochemical plant, also for PEMEX.

This is the first contract SENER has signed with Samsung Mexico, and it will allow the company to be a part of PEMEX’s biggest projects at present. Furthermore, it strengthens SENER’s position as a leading company for power projects in Mexico, the group’s second largest country by number of employees: in Engineering and Construction, it has a multidisciplinary team of over 400 professionals involved in major contracts in all of the sectors in which it is active. In addition to the projects already mentioned in Power and Process, in Infrastructures and Transport examples include the Toluca – Mexico City passenger train, the rail bypass of Morelia, the General Hospital of Mexico, Mexico City’s international airport, a number of works on the Durango – Mazatlán highway and intelligent transportation systems on roads across the whole country for clients such as SCT, BANOBRAS and CAPUFE. In the Marine sector, SENER also has projects related to the oil sector. Lastly, in Aerospace the company has signed a collaboration agreement with the Mexican Space Agency (AEM), and provides design and integration services for specialized machinery in the country’s growing aeronautics sector.


For its part, the multidisciplinary company SENER is an international benchmark company in the power generation business, in which it develops engineering and construction projects, many of them on a turnkey or EPC basis. Among its main references are the combined-cycle plants San Martín, Manuel Belgrano and Bicentenario, in Argentina; Termozulia II and Termozulia III, in Venezuela, and Norte I, Poza Rica and Agua Prieta, in Mexico; the liquefied natural gas plant in Río Grande (Bolivia) developed for YPFB; three cogeneration plants in Mexico, two in Veracruz and a third one in the Francisco I Madero plant for Pemex Refinación; the liquefied natural gas regasification terminals SAGGAS in Spain, the Dunkirk terminal in France, and the Gate terminal in the Netherlands – which is one of the largest gas terminals in Europe - and the Zeebrugge plant in Belgium; noteworthy to mention are also the concentrated solar power plants, a sector in which SENER is the world-leading company with more than 25 facilities developed in Spain, USA, India, Morocco and South Africa. In addition, in the Energy and Environment area, SENER promotes renewable energy and waste to energy projects by implementing its own technology in plants such as Torresol Energy, Zabalgarbi, Tracjusa, Valpuren Comatur and Valpuren Bañuelo. In Brazil, SENER already develops projects for clients such as Odebrecht, Petrobras and BR Distribuidora and also promotes a used oil rerefining plant at Rio de Janeiro through the joint venture company BRF, an alliance with Petrobras Distribuidora.
