SENER wins the contract to manage upgrades to the command and control technology of the Barcelona Metro02/02/2022 (Spain)
SENER has signed a contract with Infraestructures.cat to oversee the project that will allow the technologies in the control centers operated by Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB) to evolve.
This project, which will be carried out over the next 5 years, will require TMB to implement its digital transformation strategy, starting with the most core technological layer, and eventually redefine and optimize its operational processes, structure and capabilities.
The scope of SENER's contract includes everything from normal project management tasks (monitoring the development and execution, financial oversight of the project, and certifications, incident and risk reports, etc.) to a specialized service that involves defining the guidelines applicable to the contractor.
This innovative service to lead and spearhead the technology behind the project will rely on an ad-hoc organizational structure called the "skills center," which will provide the criteria, foundational elements, procedures, methodologies, etc., that must be used by the successful bidder to successfully carry out the work.
With this contract, SENER is confirming its status as a leading player in the field of projects to renovate, develop and upgrade transport infrastructure, which have already begun to be tendered worldwide and which are expected to account for a substantial percentage of the business in coming years.
