Ingeteam starts building a new R&D laboratory, set to become a technology benchmark in power and control electronics

  • Ingeteam’s new laboratory, to be located in Northern Spain, represents an investment of around €25M under the company’s strategic plan.
  • Partial tests, type tests and combined power and control electronics tests will be conducted at the new facility, set to become international benchmarks for the renewables and electrification industries.
  • The systems tested at the laboratory will mainly address the wind and solar sectors, electric vehicle chargers, green hydrogen and battery energy storage.


Ingeteam continues to invest in R&D and strengthen its Spanish national presence, where it currently employs almost 2,900 people. The company takes a further step forward with the construction of a new R&D laboratory, which will become a leading international benchmark in electrification and renewables, to be located beside the company’s current offices in the Nothern city of Pamplona. Ingeteam currently has 8 laboratories in the Basque Country and Navarre, where it tests its new developments in the field of rotating electrical machines and power and control electronics, including a recently incorporated 4.0 laboratory.

The construction of the new building, which will add a further 12,000 sqm of floor space to the existing facilities, between the laboratory, offices and ancillary areas, will require an investment of about €25M. In addition to housing the new laboratory, the facility will provide the company with new office space for over 250 people, to support the significant growth in staff it has experienced in recent years.

At the beginning of 2022, Ingeteam announced a new strategic plan with a total investment of €210M for its R&D activities and new infrastructures, including this new laboratory, which is expected to be operational by the end of 2025.

Partial tests, validations, type tests and combined power and control electronics tests of the systems designed and manufactured by Ingeteam will be conducted at the new facilities. The main application sectors are currently wind and solar power, electric car chargers, battery energy storage and green hydrogen. Sectors that all pursue the electrification of society as the only means to achieve the decarbonisation of the economy and contribute to sustainable development, fighting against climate change. Ingeteam thus invests in technology and the future, creating wealth and quality employment in the region, with a project that is 100% in line with the company’s identity.

Technological innovation, a key factor for Ingeteam’s activity, is the driving force behind its growth and evolution. Ingeteam invests around 5% of its annual turnover in R&D and employs over 500 people dedicated to research and development. Having such a facility will put the company in an excellent position to further pursue its aim of electrifying a sustainable future.
