Maliaño, December 17th, 2018 – Equipos Nucleares S.A., S.M.E (Ensa) collaborated with the University of Cantabria (UC) and the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) in a project related to the techniques of non-destructive testing by ultrasound whose objective was that the Cantabrian company improve its training in two new generation techniques Phased Array and TOFD.

The execution of this project is translated in terms of innovation for Ensa, due to the fact that the advanced ultrasound tests can contribute to guarantee the quality of the welds in the welding station itself.

This collaboration has served to launch a new inspection technology project aimed at robotizing tests for the ITER project (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) with which the Cantabrian company and the UC will continue working together.

The project was financed by the Ministry of Innovation, Industry, Tourism and Trade of the Government of Cantabria through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
