Navantia Seanergies, Navantia's green energy division, met yesterday in Madrid with representatives of 250 companies from different industrial areas to explain the business opportunities offered by offshore wind energy. The objective of this initiative is clear: to make Spain a key player in the sector. "Green energies are a huge opportunity to boost our industrial fabric. Navantia Seanergies is the player that can drive and make a whole business ecosystem participate in this market," explained Navantia's president, Ricardo Domínguez.
The Spanish Wind Energy Association estimates that during the period 2025-2050 this industry could have an impact on the Spanish GDP of 49,607 million euros, of which 40,874 million would be the direct contribution of the agents that carry out activities in the sector. In order to facilitate the communication with the public entity, a web page has been launched (
The director of Navantia Seanergies, Javier Herrador, encouraged the companies: "Knowledge, capacity, compliance and collaboration. The future we have is very promising and we have to go through it together. We are a great team and we have the synergies that will make it possible for us to become a leading country in offshore wind energy," he said.
The opportunities, according to Herrador, are industrial and also technological, through the Green Energy Center of Excellence that Navantia Seanergies is setting up to promote open innovation in its three production centers: Fene (A Coruña), Puerto Real (Cádiz) and Cartagena (Murcia).
The commercial director of the public company, Abel Méndez, recalled that offshore wind activity accounted for 900 million in business for Navantia from 2015 to 2021, with 11 projects executed in five countries alone or in collaboration with Windar. In 2022, it contracted a similar volume, with seven projects for four countries.
During the meeting, he also highlighted that the public company is the only European manufacturer of jackets (fixed foundations) and that with Windar it also builds floating foundations, the technology that will make it possible to install wind farms in deep waters.
