The company from Zaragoza is the official supplier of this company in the Aragonese community, where there are already three of these recharging points for Tesla electric vehicles.
One of these fast recharging points is at the El Cisne de Zoilo Ríos service station in Zaragoza, in addition to having installed another in the Zaragoza town of Ariza and, Recently, another fast charging station has been in the Huesca municipality of Barbastro.
Dolmen Engineering is official supplier of Tesla in Aragon for three years and the goal is to continue making more service stations as the company advances in its strategic plans, which contemplate that there be one of these fast recharging stations in a radius of less than 300 kilometers so that their vehicles have infinite autonomy . In addition, “the recharge is done in 20 minutes while you have a coffee,” explains Alberto Hernndez, manager and director of Engineering of the company, to the Economist
The installation of these stations is one of Dolmen Engineering’s lines of activity within which other infrastructures are also being undertaken, such as those of the Zaragoza Seminar for municipal vehicles within the framework of the Zaragoza City Council’s municipal fleet electrification plan. This area also includes the stations for Parks and Gardens and the charging stations in other public buildings.
To this activity, Dolmen Engineering adds more projects related to energy efficiency such as the photovoltaic solar installations. A sector for which they have already carried out a 150 kilowatt project for the Sabinigo City Council, specifically for its sports center, in order to serve the surrounding buildings such as the library or the cultural center. “It’s the concept of energy communities. Self-consumption is common, but here there are batteries to accumulate energy because, for example, in the auditorium there are activities when there is no sun.”
Apart from the line of activity related to energy efficiency, Dolmen Engineering also works in the field of industrial construction in which it has carried out projects such as the construction of industrial buildings for Defeder in Huesca. “Our hard core is engineering and this year we expanded it with architecture in order to tackle projects that were previously industrial and are now also architectural” such as the Multipurpose Room in Zaragoza.
Dolmen Engineer has implemented BIM technology because “the projects in the near future are not going to exist like they do now. They are done in 3D. The drawings have all the information on materials, technical calculations, installations incorporated… With a 3D drawing you have more information than in 50 plans” .
The lines of activity of the company are completed with the environmental quality from which the clean rooms that they carry out through Dolmen CleanRoom derive. “Now it is fashionable to measure CO2, but we had already had our own program before the pandemic for some time to keep carbon dioxide levels at reasonable levels.” The company is also working on “exposure to asbestos which, despite being banned 15 years ago, there are buildings that still have it”.
Dolmen Ingeniera foresees a positive year of 2022. “We see it with optimism. We have contracted 30% of what should be the whole year“. In this way, they foresee growing between 10% and 15%, maintaining the rate of previous years, but “every year we exceed it”. An evolution in which the company considers that it will be favored by the incorporation of the BIM technology.
Growth has led the company to relocate its facilities in Zaragoza to have more surface area and space given the need, in turn, to recruit more employees. “We are looking for professionals every month within this context of uncertainty that affects us all. We have the bottleneck in draftsmanship and in the figure of draughtsman because we have grown in technicians and there are few draftsmen. Added to this is BIM, which requires more delineation work.
