Ocean Shipyards

Keeping Tourism Afloat

Ocean Shipyard is a family-run business whose history can be traced back almost a hundred years. The father and grandfather of Vassilis Stratis founded Ocean and started out supplying small wooden fishing boats to fishermen in Northern Greece. Vassilis now works with his father in a state of the art shipyard just outside Athens in Greece, supplying a range of vessels, from passenger boats for the tourism industry, to boats for personal and recreational use, as well as industrial and professional uses.

Tecnatom is an engineering company based in Madrid, Spain, that has provided services to the nuclear industry since its creation in 1957. The company’s main activity centres on the rendering of inspection and component structural integrity services, the training of operations personnel by means of full-scope simulators and engineering in support of plant operation.

The owners of Tecnatom are the Spanish electricity utilities with interest in the country’s nuclear power plants and the company currently has more than 750 employees, approximately 50% of which are post-graduates, this being explained by the complex technologies associated with the service that it provides.

During the last decade, Tecnatom has diversified its services and products on the international market, taking them to other industrial sectors such as aeronautics, the petrochemical sector, etc.

The company supplies services and products with a high technological component, which it improves continuously in order to adapt to the needs and requirements of the clients and markets. To achieve this improvement, the company has implemented a Technological Innovation Plan, which implies the heavy investments necessary to maintain technological leadership on the national and international markets.

Having developed in-house products means that the latter may be supplied to others, thus initiating a diversification of the company’s activities and taking it from being a supplier of services to also being a supplier of products. Consequently, diversification is almost an obligation, not only in order to increase the economic activity of the company but also to address and undertake technological innovations that would not be profitable if used only for the services that Tecnatom provides to the nuclear sector.

Spacecraft design

Updates from Use-It-Wisely’s Space Cluster

Our space researchers are developing a software which will allow those in the space sector to create a virtual model of a spacecraft, in terms of technical data, related simulations and 3D visualisations. This may be used by technical teams to quickly design a spacecraft according to customer needs. The aim of the research is that the collaboration tool may be used across the European space sector as a whole once it is fully developed and validated.
