When it comes to industrial services, Bilfinger is far and away the top choice for companies in Germany. For the ninth consecutive year, the company has taken first place in the industrial services sector according to the renowned Lünendonk List 2017, published annually by Lünendonk & Hossenfelder GmbH. With domestic sales of over €1 billion last year, the Group generated revenues of roughly a quarter more than the second placed company.
Tom Blades, Bilfinger CEO: “I am delighted that we have been at the top of the list for almost a decade. We enhance the efficiency of plants while reducing maintenance costs – something our customers appreciate. Especially in the field of digitalization, we apply predictive maintenance approaches that are setting standards in our industry.”
Advancing digitalization has provided a huge boost in the development of predictive maintenance. With a strict set of standards and best practices, Bilfinger’s Maintenance, Modifications & Operations (MMO) segment offers its customers the most modern maintenance available.
Bilfinger’s pilot project with Münzing Chemie is one example of how predictive maintenance works. Bilfinger digitally records the technical information on an existing power
plant and for two chemical reactors. Bilfinger’s new digital MMO platform will also collate and comprehensively assess maintenance and production data.
Information about the plant can be accessed with just a few clicks on the integrated Bilfinger MMO platform. All engineering, maintenance, production, environmental and energy data recorded during the lifecycle of the plant is also systematically collated and analyzed. The aim is to use the existing data portfolio to tap new potential for the enhancement of plant efficiency and availability.
СВЕРШИЛОСЬ! Twelve Bilfinger GreyLogix employees are now RosTechNadzor certified in Russia.
RosTechNadzor Surveillance Authority
RosTechNadzor is a federal technical controlling authority in Russia, similar to the German TÜV. RosTechNadzor (RTN) stands for „Russian Technical Surveillance Authorities“. When employees are involved with the planning, developing, commissioning, operation, or maintenance of an industrial plant in Russia, they must be certified accordingly. No work at the plant may be carried out without the corresponding certification. At the same time, this certification means the individual’s information must be entered into the state register, a database of the surveillance authority.
Bilfinger GreyLogix Stands for Innovation
Before the RTN certifications could be issued, negotiations were held with Russian authorities to verify numerous documents, diplomas, and certificates. Through the RosTechNadzor certification, professional employees from Bilfinger GreyLogix are officially authorized to conduct work on plants and carry out their activities in Russia. Since Bilfinger GreyLogix continues to expand its range of activities and is committed to fulfill requirements for ongoing projects, such certifications will be carried out in a targeted manner. These nuances give Bilfinger GreyLogix an edge over the competition and promote intercultural understanding among its team of experts.
On Behalf of the Customer
Bilfinger GreyLogix relies on professionalism while fulfilling all necessary legal requirements to maintain good customer relationships — whether in Germany, Russia, or other countries around the world. By employing specialists with management backgrounds and experience in engineering fields, such as hardware, software, and SCADA, Bilfinger GreyLogix satisfies these requirements. It is Bilfinger GreyLogix‘ goal to work towards continuous improvement and provide the best possible performance for its customers.

Together with HanseWerk Natur, we will present the project “The Unmanned Control Center” on the SPS IPC Drives 2016. You can convince yourself of the idea, away from the typical hustle and bustle of the exhibition in the Siemens SCADA Lounge. Bilfinger GreyLogix proves with the Unmanned Control Center that the unmanned control of a decentralized plant in a heating network is a viable solution; a secure and efficient solution.
This state-of-the-art development by Bilfinger GreyLogix and HanseWerk Natur is right in the main area of interest of the exhibition.
For more information about this event, please visit the website of our partner Siemens.
We are looking forward to meeting you at the exhibition!
Now that most of the economic sanctions against Iran have been lifted, the country has become an interesting partner for German industry. Bilfinger GREYLOGIX has now secured its first order there: one of Iran’s largest refineries is being upgraded and Bilfinger GREYLOGIX is delivering the entire process control system for the project.
The system will be designed, built and programmed in Germany. Following testing and customer acceptance, it will be shipped to Iran. The order has a volume of several million euros, though the parties agreed not to disclose the exact amount. The contract was signed during a visit of the Iranian delegation to Bilfinger headquarters in Mannheim.
“Our engineering services made in Germany are an international seal of quality. I am delighted that we will be able to contribute our quality and reliability to the ambitious project in Iran,” says Tom Blades, CEO at Bilfinger SE. “Iran has a great deal of pent up demand when it comes to the modernization of its industrial facilities and Bilfinger can make a contribution here in cooperation with Iranian companies.”
The refinery in the city of Esfahan is operated by the Esfahan Oil Refining Company (EORC). It went into operation in 1979 and has a processing capacity of up to 370,000 barrels per day. The refinery will be upgraded through the addition of a so-called Diesel Hydro Treatment plant which will be used to produce environmental friendly diesel in accordance with the Euro 5 norm.
Iranian company Nargan, which was commissioned with the engineering and procurement of the plant, selected Bilfinger GREYLOGIX as supplier for the process technology including the safety systems.
The order volume does not include commissioning of the plant, which Bilfinger GREYLOGIX will carry out in the country. In addition to Bilfinger’s Engineering Solutions division, other renowned German companies have also been selected as suppliers for this project.

The annual BASF FIRMENCUP (Company Cup) on the legendary Grand Prix track Hockenheimring lets runners, inline skaters and Nordic walkers compete either on their own or with their respective company’s team since 2003.
Once again we were part of the over 17,000 athletes and 820 participating companies and had enthusiastic fans cheering us on. All of our athletes beat their last year’s final result and reached their personal goals! Maybe the ferocious thunderstorm just before the start of the race gave them this special edge.
Next year we will compete again with an even stronger team.
