Hispano-Suiza creates electrical development division, names Serge Bérenger as division head
Colombes, October 11, 2005
Hispano-Suiza has created an electrical development division to lay the groundwork needed to meet tomorrow’s technical and industrial challenges inherent in the increasing use of electrical equipment and power generation on new-generation aircraft. The new division aims to foster Hispano-Suiza’s ability to support and master the shift to the potentially disruptive technology of “more electric” aircraft and engines, and its impact on fellow SAFRAN Group companies.
Serge Bérenger has been named director of the new electrical development division, reporting to corporate management. He will also represent Hispano-Suiza in SAFRAN’s new “all electric” working group, now being set up.
Serge Bérenger, 40, is graduated from the Ecole Supérieure d’Electricité (commonly known as “Supélec” in France). He started his career with the Zodiac group in 1989, then moved to Artus. In 1995, he joined Thales Avionics Electrical Systems in Chatou, as head of the engineering department. In 2001, he was named vice president, programs and engineering, in charge of the development of electrical systems and equipment for civil and military aircraft. From October 2004 until this latest appointment, Serge Bérenger was director of innovation at the Thales Aerospace Division.
Hispano-Suiza is a world leader in the design, manufacture and support of commercial and military engine control systems, power transmissions, power electronics and actuators. The company is also actively involved in R&D for advanced systems and equipment on tomorrow’s “more electric” aircraft. Hispano-Suiza has two main facilities in the greater Paris area, at Colombes and Réau, and manages two operating units, in Peterborough, Canada and Sedziszow, Poland. Hispano-Suiza is part of SAFRAN, a high-tech Group operating in four main sectors: propulsion, communications, equipment, defense security.
