The Bilfinger Turnaround Concept (BTC)

Lower costs, shorter shutdowns
Bilfinger Turnaround Concept (photo)

Industrial plants have to be shut down at regular intervals so that they can be comprehensively maintained and upgraded. Given that any plant downtime results in substantial losses of revenue, such “turnarounds” (i.e. general technical inspections) must be painstakingly planned and prepared. Bilfinger has developed BTC, an innovative turnaround concept that can help further reduce the associated shutdown times and costs. It is based on an optimized methodology allowing all aspects of a turnaround to be planned and executed in a holistic manner.

New headquarters

Smart technologies enhance sustainability
New headquarters (photo)

Bilfinger’s new headquarters in the Almenhof district of Mannheim is not only convenient to get to and reflects many new work principles. It also meets high standards in terms of energy. For instance, the workspace lighting automatically adjusts to ambient light and switches itself off completely after a short while in rooms where no one is present. Hot exhaust air is recovered and the heating or air conditioning turns off when windows are opened. The building features a green roof as well as numerous charging stations for e-bikes and electric cars.
