Belgium: Multi-Million-Dollar Order Bilfinger to Provide Mechanical Construction and Digital Solutions for Ineos
Bilfinger and Ineos are expanding their cooperation. Alongside industrial services in Germany, the Mannheim-based company will in future also be providing services to the chemicals company in Belgium.
Mannheim/Germany — Bilfinger is to construct scaffolding for maintenance work and turnarounds of large-scale facilities at Ineos' Zwijndrecht and Doel locations in Antwerp. The double-digit million contract will run for a period of three years.
The engineering company quantifies the scaffolding BOM (Bill of Materials) and optimizes the erection mode and time needed at the customer’s plant by means of a scaffolding app for smartphones or tablets. This information is then transferred digitally to a central database where all contract data is stored.
Via the portal, the customer has a transparent, up-to-the-minute overview of the status and progress of all services. The digital customer portal links operational and administrative processes on a single platform, making communication and interfacing with the customer even more efficient.
Ineos at its location in Cologne, Germany, had already commissioned Bilfinger with pipe construction services in February 2018. Among other aspects, the team is responsible for large parts of the water-steam cycle for the new steam generator at the industrial power plant. The company’s services notably include the engineering, assembly, erection and commissioning of critical pipework.
