Constructing plants with skill and passion
We use high-quality components when designing and constructing our plants. By relying on our own production facilities in Schkopau, Germany, we are able to quickly and easily produce made-to-measure components for our customers.
We offer solutions in the following areas:
Analysis – 20 years of engineering experience
We perform needs analyses for many different reasons. They are often an important factor in reliably estimating costs and profits for our clients in the course of designing and constructing the plant.
Before investing in a new plant – or expanding or modernizing an existing facility – several aspects need to be taken into consideration when estimating costs, which can affect a client’s decision-making.
- Does it make sense to expand or enhance the plant?
- What are the alternatives?
- How suitable is the site for a new-build in terms of transport links, available resources, etc.?
Using precision planning to achieve the best results
Armed with a concrete needs analysis and our clients’ requirements, our team of engineers and technicians are able to design an entire plant and prepare for the optimal implementation of the project.
Our engineering services in this phase include:
Fine-tuning the design details
In the design phase, all of the details are discussed and coordinated up front so that every screw ends up where it is supposed to be during assembly.
Own production facilities provide practical experience
We benefit not least from the fact that we not only provide planning services at our site in Schkopau, but also have our own design department and our own production and manufacturing facilities. This allows us to manufacture many components ourselves. Not only can we make theoretical calculations, we are also constantly putting many plant engineering aspects into practice using the latest process technology – know-how which our clients benefit from.
Our team of engineers follows the precise specifications of the client when designing the plant. They also provide competent advice if there is a potential for optimization, and carefully coordinate the individual steps with all relevant parties. This includes the design, manufacture and assembly of the individual components, process sequencing in the plant, and implementation of the subsequent control of the manufacturing processes.
Implementation – with the finishing line in sight
Thanks to our international team and many years of experience in constructing plants for bulk material handling, we are familiar with the situation and conditions on the various markets. We can reliably ensure that the necessary planning and organizational tasks fit together and run smoothly: from scheduling and logistics to the import of goods and plant construction.
Reliable teams and experienced partners on site
In addition to designing and preparing to build plants, our services also include the on-site assembly of individual parts, components or even entire plants. Here, experienced plant designers who can reliably supervise and manage the implementation of the project play a crucial role. Thanks to our international staff and experienced plant engineers, we are confident that the project will be executed competently and that we will be able to react quickly and professionally should any adjustments or changes need to be made.
Consistently high quality on a global scale
We have also built long-standing reliable partnerships with local contractors capable of working on a global scale. At any time, we are able to call on teams in various regions that meet our high standards of quality. As a result, our clients have planning security and projects are delivered on time under all circumstances.
During the implementation phase, our team of engineers remains on hand and can promptly clarify any questions that may arise in the course of your project.
At the end of the assembly phase, our team can provide comprehensive as-built documentation. This additional documentation means you are prepared for any future conversion or expansion measures.
Evaluation – ensuring guaranteed performance
The last step before handover of the plant is the so-called test run. This provides proof that the plant will achieve the guaranteed level of performance.
This test run is successful if:
- tonnage and quality of the final product are right
- the ratio of raw materials to end product is correct.
- the energy consumption for continuous operation of the plant is within the specified parameters.
Only when all these criteria have been met is the plant considered to have been successfully commissioned.
At this point, the start-up phase is completed. This is followed by years of continuous operation with scheduled shutdowns for maintenance or, if necessary, modernization and expansion.
