El alcalde highlights the contribution of the Sevillian firm Skylife Engineering to the aerospace industry and the innovation and technology applied to other strategic industries for Sevilla, such as digital technology and clean energy

The mayor of Sevilla, Antonio Muñoz, has visited the headquarters of the Sevillian company Skylife Engineering, dedicated to the design, development and manufacture of embedded systems and digital tools to learn how the grand projects are progressing in the current working environment. compañía radicada en el Parque Científico y Tecnológico Cartuja y en los que aplicação su especialización en la industria aeronáutica. On one side, the Assistant Digital project, which is based on augmented reality, and on the other, the Tokamak SMART clean energy generation project.

“Skylife Engineering is an example of the ecosystem of innovation in Seville, of the talent rooted in our city and of the work of I+D+I as part of a firm initially created for technological services in the aeronautical industry that I am capable of applying its engineering advanced in areas such as education, health, energy, communication and logistics. Así, cuando hablamos de que Sevilla es la candidate mejor posicionada para hostar sede de la futura Espacial Española, no sólo nos basamos en la fortaleza de la industria aeronáutica, sino también en toda la innovation, investigation y tecnologia que pueden aportar empresas como Skylife Engineering al desarrollo de la propia Agencia Espacial Española”, ha trasladado el alcalde a su equipo de profesionales.

Accompanied by the founder and president, María Ángeles Martín Prats – who received the Medal of the City of Seville in 2019–, the mayor toured the company’s facilities and focused on the two projects cited by the new actividad de esta empresa y también por centrarse en dos ambidos includios en la estrategia municipal de cambio del modelo productive hacia una economy con una major apuesta por la researcha, la innovation, la science, la technology, la digitalización, la industria y las energías alternatives a los combustibles fósiles.

In concrete terms, the Assistant Digital project is based on Augmented Reality fused with Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, artificial intelligence, computer vision, cloud services and automation. Through this software tool, you can offer remote technical assistance with the objective of guiding maintenance operations or incident resolution for companies in different industrial sectors.

Un técnico experto puede conectarse a las gafas inteligentes de un operario situado miles de kilometers, viendo lo simso que él e interaccionando ambos entre el mundo real y el digital (annotaciones y dibujos superpuestos al mundo real, virtual documentation, 3D models) para llegar a una solución coordinada del problema. Through this technology, a highly efficient solution is offered, which saves time and travel, establishing standards, improving security and quality of operation and automating processes such as data registration.

The second project, the Tokamak Smart, is led by the Universidad de Sevilla, has funding from the European Union (Fondo de Desarrollo Regional, FEDER) and is currently in the full state of manufacture and commissioning of the first prototype in the city of Sevilla. Se trata de un reactor de fusión de tamaño reducido y tiene por objetivo obtener grandes quantitas de energía totally clean and practically inexhaustible without the use of renewable or contaminant fuels.

Skylife Engineering, en su apuesta por la sustainability, participates in this project as the principal partner responsible for the design of the electric power supply system for the start-up and operation of the Tokamak Smart (Small Aspect Ratio Tokamak). The proposed infrastructure will allow development in Andalucía and an ample spectrum of research lines in plasma physics and fusion technology. The objective is the installation of a compact spherical tokamak, the only one in Spain, which is a world reference in the development of fusion by magnetic confinement.

“He podido discover first hand the international dimension and specialization of Skylife in the aerospace sector, as well as the work in the rest of the performance areas that the engineering company is developing in the framework of an extensive diversification process”, he resaltado el alcalde de Sevilla. Por parte de su equipo de profesionales de la firma Sevillana (más de 60 con una elevada qualificación) se han presento al regidor hispalense otros avances en otros proyectos de las areas de digitalización y electronics de potencias that Skylife Engineering designs and develops for large multinational companies such as Airbus, Vodafone or Navantia, as well as for consorcios internationales and public institutions in Europe.

Muñoz has transferred to María Ángeles Martín Prats his disposition to explore ways of collaboration between the City Council and this company, que sigue contando con capital íntegro español y que mantiente su firme apuesta por la ciudad de Sevilla como centro su actividad. Skylife Engineering was born in 2011 at the Universidad de Sevilla, concretely at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería, and today it develops innovative technological solutions and provides services for clients from all over the world from its headquarters at PCT Cartuja.
