Services for rotating equipment
From manufacturer-independent consulting and maintenance to ongoing optimization and repair, Bilfinger offers comprehensive services throughout the entire service life of rotating equipment. We monitor ongoing operations and guarantee process safety and maximum reliability. This service package is complemented by a large rental pool that includes 20,000 pieces of equipment consisting of pumps, drive motors and frequency converters.
High availability, time efficiency, cost savings
Pumps, reciprocating compressors and turbomachinery are at the heart of many production plants. They convey liquid or gaseous raw materials as well as process industry end products and ensure they are in constant motion. Because they generally operate around the clock, they are significantly responsible for the availability and economic efficiency of process industry plants.
When it comes to rotating equipment, we provide our customers with a supplier-independent range of services covering the entire service life of such equipment. The services include maintenance, repair, test runs, strategic consulting, optimization and commissioning and also cover rotating machines in explosion-hazard areas in accordance with the German Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health."
