The companies Vimansa and Teinsa lead a European project to combat hospital infections.

Last 23rd of February it was held in our facilities the first meeting of the European project Haifree (Hospital Acquired Infections Free), which was attended by the following participating companies: Tecnologías Avanzadas Inspiralia, Somez, Nano-Cat and the Institute Pasteur.

With this project we try to maximize the purity of the air flowing through the areas of hospital, surgical and other medical facilities to prevent nosocomial and other hospital infections. 



News in La Rioja newspaper:

La Rioja "Land of Inventors". Interview with the daily newspaper La Rioja to our R & D department.


The Patents-Teinsa relationship is indissoluble in La Rioja; In fact, eight of the inventions of the company dedicated to the design, manufacture and maintenance of air conditioning and fluid installations have that title. "We focus our work on care for the environment and energy saving", says Antonio Aguirre, accompanied by his colleague in the area of R & D, Jacobo Lousas.

Among its developments we may highlight that which allows for a dam to be “invisible”, in an environmental sense. "The water that comes out of the hydraulic dam is colder because the turbine takes it from the deepest part, it also has a lower amount of oxygen and carries mud resulting in both the fauna and flora disappearing from the river for miles. With our system, which collects water from the top without having to change the turbine and without causing a loss of efficiency, we avoid the environmental impact, making the dam invisible, ecologically speaking, "summarizes Aguirre.

No less surprising is its air conditioning system by layers. "Imagine a large atrium of 10 meters high. If you have to heat this room you have to heat it completely from top to bottom. Our patent, using at all times the same materials as a traditional system and by means of positioning and control of devices, allows heating of only the two and a half meters closest to the ground. The savings are enormous”, explained Aguirre and Lousas.

And a Riojan company cannot ignore the wine . "We have a very interesting patent for reducing wastage of wine in oak barrels with a system that monitors environmental variables (temperature, humidity, air speed ...), and which two wineries in Rioja have already installed", they conclude.


Latest Therratherma Project meeting at TEINSA facilities

Last wednesday, 30th June, Teinsa hosted a further international meeting for the European project Therra Therma in which partners from the UK, the Netherlands, US and Germany gathered to analyze their progress in the project. This geothermal energy project, consisting of the development of a new and more efficient geothermal heat pump for housing, has only a a few months left untill its conclusion and we are more than satisfied with the results so far. Teinsa's role in the project is to develop a control system. 

President of La Rioja visits Teinsa

La Rioja's president Mr. Pedro Sanz and the industry councillor Mr. Javier Erro visited Teinsa's facilities guided by our manager Mr. Javier Cumplido Matesanz and part of the I+D team.
During the visit they were shown Teinsa's work in I+D developed these past years. The president was specially interested in projects concerning the reduction of environmental impact of hydroelectric production with dams, the elimination of microorganisms in hospitals. Finally, they saw part of the solar system production of hot water installation in our facilities.
