Do Amazing Things in the ISP Field and as a Rope Access Technician for Bilfinger
Teamwork is essential to constructing and maintaining large-scale industrial systems. The areas of insulation, scaffolding construction, corrosion protection and rope access offer exciting duties on an expert international team.
Whether constructing an oil platform, renovating a chimney that is hundreds of meters tall, or working on one of our many challenging projects, your work makes a key contribution to Bilfinger, and you will be able to see evidence of your success right away. Bilfinger believes in training and strives to help you prepare for your duties in a targeted way. We value your safety and your ongoing personal and professional development.
Are you a team player who loves to work on remarkable projects in the process industry? Then become part of something big and start your success story at Bilfinger today:
Scaffolding Construction for Complex Construction Projects
You can take on unique challenges in our scaffolding construction area. You will work on large-scale industrial scaffolds that require complex structures to fulfill extremely high requirements for stability and load-bearing capacity. Each scaffolding project is unique and challenging in its own way. Whether these are scaffolds for onshore and offshore industrial systems, highway bridges, tall industrial chimneys or other complex structures, as a highly effective team, we always make even the most unusual customer inquiries possible. To date, the largest continuous scaffold project we have constructed measures 85,000 cubic meters and surrounds a piece of large-scale, open-pit mining equipment.
Thanks to our comprehensive expertise in the scaffolding construction field, we are one of the largest providers in Europe. Depending on the project, we employ different kinds of scaffolding structures: independent linked scaffolding, tower scaffolds, birdcage scaffolds, suspended scaffolding, cantilever scaffolds and designer scaffolds. This means your work will be diverse, varied, and always exciting.
Corrosion Protection for Long-Term Durability
Corrosion protection helps protect and maintain structures, while also preventing and avoiding damage caused by weather. The unique thing about Bilfinger is the kinds of projects on which you will be asked to work. Your job will involve orchestrating the operation of large-scale industrial systems. These include both onshore systems – such as chemical, pharmaceutical or production systems with giant pipeline structures – as well as offshore equipment such as oil platforms exposed to the effects of wind, weather, and salt water.
You will see the results and success of your work right away. Your commitment and your expertise will help you ensure optimal corrosion protection and improve system safety.
Rope Access Technicians for Special Tasks
As a rope access technician, your skills are in demand to work at great heights or in difficult to access areas. As a leading industrial service provider, Bilfinger offers you a wide range of exciting and diverse work opportunities. Our services by rope access technicians include global inspection, construction and maintenance services on onshore and offshore systems, such as industrial chimneys or drilling platforms.
Your safety and continued development are very important to us. Because of this, we offer you outstanding training and continued education services.
Always Open to Innovative Work Methods
Work easier with an exoskeleton
The areas of insulation, scaffolding construction, corrosion protection and rope access involve performing difficult physical work. We are always looking for innovative work methods and equipment to relieve our employees and help them perform their duties easier. An example includes the exoskeleton developed through a pilot project in the Netherlands. The exoskeleton is a compact, lightweight mechanical support structure that supports an employee's arm and shoulder as they work. Test results so far speak for themselves. Using the exoskeleton allows the work to be completed almost effortlessly. Arm strength is increased significantly, and fatigue is greatly reduced. This helps to protect employee health over the long term.

A valuable contribution to climate protection
Heat loss from equipment is not only a factor in terms of cost but an environmental factor as well. To identify weak points and unused potential in insulation and in non-insulated components, Bilfinger uses the TIPCHECK process (Technical Insulation Performance Check). This process is used not only to inspect existing insulation for defects and damage, but for any “hot spots” as well. These are non-insulated components, such as flanges, fittings or wall brackets where heat and, therefore, energy are lost. To do so, we use equipment like thermal imaging cameras and contact thermometers to better detect heat loss from systems or specific system parts. Then, measures are taken to improve insulation based on the testing results. Subsequent measurements of values from completed projects confirm the positive effects of this process. We were able to reduce CO2 emissions from a Swiss system, for instance, by six tons per year. The TIPCHECK process makes an effective contribution to climate protection.
