Expanding Power Services: Bilfinger Berger acquires leading provider of heating surface cleaning systems and finned tubes

Bilfinger Berger is further expanding its activities in the Power Services business segment with the acquisition of Rosink Apparate- und Anlagenbau GmbH in Nordhorn, Germany. Rosink is a leading provider of heating surface cleaning systems in Europe and market leader in the production of finned tubes in Germany. As part of the acquisition, Bilfinger Berger also receives a number of important patents. The highly profitable company generates an annual output volume of €25 million with 160 employees. The two parties have agreed not to disclose details of the purchase price.

The acquisition enables Bilfinger Berger Power Services to complement its activities in the manufacturing and assembly of waste heat boilers, the efficiency of which is influenced to a great extent by the dimensioning of the finned tubes. The company is now in a position to offer complete boilers for combined cycle power plants. In addition, new opportunities are opened up in the marketing of heating system cleaning systems for power plant boilers through the use of Bilfinger Berger’s international distribution network.

Bilfinger Berger Power Services is among the leading providers to the energy sector in the national and international markets that it serves. The need for investment in the medium-term in Germany that has arisen as a result of energy policy decisions as well as continued strong demand internationally give the company very good prospects for the future.
