Keep your plants reliably up-to-date

Revamps and modernization for longer equipment and plant lifetime

Over the course of time, the demands placed on production plants often change. In order to meet these changed demands, we offer you our services in the field of revamps, modernization and renovation.

With innovative engineering solutions and customized upgrades, we help you to keep your plants up-to-date. Cutting-edge process technology and modern components increase the lifetime of your plant. Thereby, our services can come into play both in the case of individual plant components and the plant as a whole.

Our upgrades for increased plant capacity

With our revamp and modernization projects, we can expand production capacities, ensure better plant availability and optimize your plants for the ideal use of possibly changing raw materials. Maintenance costs are reduced and unplanned downtimes are lowered.

With the aid of state-of-the-art technology and the modernization of your plants, we can, for instance, help you to reduce energy consumption and observe environmental standards.

Thanks to the implementation of revamp measures from a single source, the subsequent commissioning and the training of your staff in the new technologies, we continue to ensure high production quality and availability levels for your production plant.
