Elecnor, through its Portuguese aerospace subsidiary Deimos Engenharia, has been selected to develop the guidance, navigation and control systems for the Clearspace-1 mission. This is the first European mission aimed at cleaning up the garbage in space. The framework for this project is the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Adrios programme, the first European space debris removal mission, scheduled for launch in 2025.
Elecnor was awarded the contract in a joint venture agreement with Omani company, Target. The new infrastructure will double the water transportation capacity from desalination plants located in Barka and Sohar (in the north of the country) to the drinking water network, bolstering the supply in the Al Batinah region, one of the Sultanate’s most populous areas.
