SENER Names Lorente International GM
Engineering and technology group SENER said it has altered its organizational setup in the field of Engineering and Construction, naming Álvaro Lorente as International General Manager, a position that is adjunct to SENER’s General Corporate Management, led by Jorge Unda.
Álvaro Lorente’s chief endeavors will be to administer the consolidation and opening of SENER offices in new geographical areas and to work as a liaison between the company’s Managing Director and its Country Managers. SENER’s continued growth means it now has more than 20 offices worldwide and a turnover that exceeds 1.305 billion Euros (2014 data).
In order to give proper attention to these new responsibilities, Álvaro Lorente is leaving his position as General Manager of Torresol Energy (60 percent owned by SENER). He has been in this role since 2008 and in recent years has combined it with the General Management of the SENER Group’s Energy and Environment division.
Álvaro Lorente is a graduate in Industrial Engineering from the ICAI Higher Technical School of Industrial Engineering of the Comillas Pontifical University in Madrid, and has also completed the IESE Business School’s General Management Program (PDG). He joined SENER in 1991, going on to lead industrial and turnkey projects, work as Head of SENER’s Mechanical Department and take charge of Operations Management for its Power, Oil & Gas division.
Over the course of his career he has been a contributor to the Petronor RB4 project for the reduction of benzene in gasoline, the Vitatene project for Antibióticos de León, the Lisbon Metro, the Sagunto regasification terminal, the Aceca combined cycle power plant and the Gemasolar and Valle 1 & Valle 2 thermosolar plants, with technology developed and patented by SENER.
