Steinmüller Africa

Bilfinger Power Africa

Bilfinger Power Africa is the holding company of Steinmüller Africa and Bilfinger Intervalve Africa and based in South Africa. For over five decades, Steinmüller Africa has been providing comprehensive solutions for steam generating plants and we are the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for 19 200MW of 44 000MW produced by the state-owned energy provider Eskom. Our presence in the South African market, is testimony to our unrivalled expertise in the steam generation industry.

Services offered range from the design and manufacturing to the construction and maintenance of boiler pressure parts. At our Pretoria based manufacturing facilities that includes 53 000 m² of fabrication facility under roof and a lifting capacity of 50t, we specialise in fabrication of high-pressure equipment, such as boiler parts, feedwater heaters, heat exchangers, pressure vessels, pipe supports and compensators. Our piping division is a true one-stop shop for all induction bending requirements with the only induction bending machine of its kind on the African continent. A highly experienced commissioning team ensures that, whether it is a new build or an existing boiler plant that is being put into service, it is done in a professional manner for reliable and safe operation. Our on-site maintenance crews, servicing 11 out of Eskom’s 17 coal-fired power plants, are experts in being at the right place at the right time and have an unrivalled reputation for service delivery across the full spectrum of maintenance operations.

Due to our well-established relationship with the state-owned electricity provider Eskom, our excellent understanding of how to do business in the African context and the growing electricity demand in South Africa and the rest of the continent, we see ourselves as the future Bilfinger support and hub for any other Bilfinger company considering to enter Africa’s market.
