USA | NORTH AMERICA: With the Bilfinger Maintenance Concept (BMC) we are bringing greater efficiency across the Atlantic to North America. A BMC contract has been signed with H.B. Fuller, a producer of industrial adhesives. Our colleagues in the USA are now responsible for maintenance of the entire process equipment at the H.B. Fuller adhesive production plant in Grand Rapids, Michigan – one of the largest plants of ist kind in the country.
GERMANY | CONTINENTAL EUROPE: Preserving knowledge and passing it on to future generations – that is what Industrial Tube is all about. The automatically generated videos document and secure valuable specialist knowledge. Employees with data glasses or smartphones make video recordings of how they complete tasks in specified steps. Following a defined approval process, the videos are automatically edited and made available through a web portal or app. Artificial intelligence transforms the spoken word into subtitles, extracts key terms and allows for a translation into any language.
SAUDI ARABIA | MIDDLE EAST: We are bundling our strengths to create added value for the customer. For this reason, Bilfinger engineering and maintenance teams have now moved into a shared location in Dammam on the east coast of Saudi Arabia. Some of the largest oil companies in the world are also located here. With the move, we shift closer to our customers and increase our flexibility.
USA | NORTH AMERICA: High precision: Laser scanning measures complex industrial facilities down to the millimeter.
NETHERLANDS | NORTHWEST EUROPE: If you expect to be planning a new industrial or production facility in the near future, we recommend that you use BIM. This acronym stands for Building Information Modeling, a digital process for facility planning. When retail customers buy a new kitchen, the standard procedure is to first look at a 3D model. For industrial assets, even 6D models are possible, depending on the available project data. The construction, design, and use can all be assessed in advance. That reduces costs and optimizes planning.
SWITZERLAND | CONTINENTAL EUROPE: The right chemistry: At the pharmaceuticals producer Siegfried, Bilfinger reduces annual maintenance costs by more than 30%.
