Formula for the future

Bilfinger’s corporate strategy can be summed up in a series of numbers: 2-4-6. Bilfinger has two business segments — engineering and digital technologies as well as maintenance, modifications and operations. Our geographic focus is on four regions: Continental Europe, Northwest Europe, North America, and the Middle East. The final number stands for the company’s six focus industries.

10 years of no accidents

ENGINEERING & MAINTENANCE
SAFE A turnaround project is an exceptional situation. Thousands of employees are in action for several weeks. During these inspections, industrial facilities are tested, serviced, taken apart, cleaned, and overhauled, and individual parts of the facility are replaced. These projects are planned years in advance. In the past ten years, Bilfinger’s German maintenance unit has conducted approximately 100 turnaround projects. During the 4.43 million work hours involved, not a single accident has occurred. That’s an outstanding record.

Are you ready for BIM?

TECHNOLOGIES

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.

On the podium

OUTSTANDING Bilfinger is one of the most attractive employers in Germany for young professionals, according to a study by the Berlin-based trendence research institute.
