Rotating Equipment

We keep your assets running 

24/7- Pumps, turbines and compressors have to run smoothly - around the clock, day in, day out. They form the core of many production plants. They convey liquid or gaseous raw materials as well as end products in the process industry and keep them moving. Demands on the productivity and availability of rotating equipment is therefore extremely high. Service and operational expertise as well as many years of experience are needed to avoid the costs associated with downtime.

Improved uptime, time efficiency, cost reduction

Pumps, piston compressors and turbo machines are at the very core of many process technology production plants. They convey liquid or gaseous raw materials as well as end products in the process industry and keep them in motion. Because they generally operate around the clock, they have a major impact on the usability and economic efficiency of plants in the process industry.

Torsten SchuldtPlant Engineer at BASF

I have been using the Bilfinger Engineering & Maintenance GmbH spare parts pool for years for the procurement of pumps for new plants, because then you can be sure that the pump fulfills the intended purpose and the documentation is complete."

Christian WiesnerSite Responsible Engineer at Nobian

During my projects at the Höchst site, I got to know and appreciate the services provided by the Bilfinger Engineering & Maintenance GmbH aggregate pool. Commissioning and service questions are answered with a high level of commitment, in a very satisfactory and customer-oriented manner. If necessary, on-site appointments can sometimes be arranged at very short notice and more complex issues can thus be addressed quickly. On the whole, by using the aggregate pool, we benefited from significant time savings in fault analyses and rapid implementation of optimizations through fast, effective consulting."
