Using our Pozo Izquierdo installations to test your system(s) (we can
offer different services: basic rental, + maintenance, + R&D, etc.) (There
are currently 3 companies making use of these services)
(Pozo Izquierdo is the perfect showcase: our installations are
visited frequently by technicians and authorities from target countries!)

Subcontracting us R&D work in our areas of excellence

Participating with us in joint projects (e.g. Integrated Projects or


Networks of Excellence)
