R&D, training and marine equipment upgrades
Research and development, training and upgrading has been a core value of Hidrofersa since the beginning, keeping us at the forefront of a constantly developing market. This has provided us with a wide range of experience and solutions to meet our customers’ needs, no matter how unique. We are able to resolve obstacles quickly and efficiently, drawing on our wealth of knowledge about the industry.
Our constant training and continuously updated range of equipment guarantee a rapid response to the projects we carry out, and makes sure that we are also ready to achieve our objectives in the future. At Hidrofersa we are able to undertake all your projects regardless of their complexity.
Remote machinery control
In the last two years we have stepped up our already sizeable investment in research and development, and are now able to install high-tech features such as microprocessors and WiFi in all kinds of equipment. This enables you to control and check your machinery’s variables, capacity and performance remotely from any location.
Our research and development team are now finding ways to improve our cementation ovens in our plants in Spain. The Titere and Corona projects are on course to be completed in July 2012.
