Energy and power plant technology
Kraftanlagen is an experienced general contractor, that can engineer and build quickly controllable power plants on the basis of gas turbines, gas and steam turbines, engines and boilers for different areas of application with fuels such as biomass, gas, coal and oil.
Kraftanlagen plants are designed to be flexible and utilise the principle of combined heat and power generation, which achieves a high-degree of efficiency by jointly generating power, heat and refrigeration.
The company also has comprehensive expertise in the latest processes, such as power-to-heat, thermal storage, and concentrated solar power (CSP).
Kraftanlagen optimises efficiency and flexibility and, as a result, the profitability and environment-friendliness of power plants. It can achieve this goal not just with newly constructed plants but also when modernising existing ones.
Decentralised energy supply
Kraftanlagen engineers, erects and maintains plants for power, hot water, steam and refrigeration supply, as well as cremation systems.
The company always works independently of the manufacturer; ensuring that customers receive unique solutions that meet their demands. Kraftanlagen’s project responsibility far exceeds the engineering and erection of plants and also includes ongoing plant optimisation, as well as a reliable service infrastructure and 24 hour on-call service.
Energy supply and network integration with underground piping systems
Kraftanlagen engineers and builds grids for the distribution of natural gas, steam, as well as hot, warm and drinking water.
Its range of services in district heating, gas and water supply includes detail engineering, supply and installation of all piping systems and components, civil engineering and technological maintenance tasks. Kraftanlagen completes all installations as general contractor or as individual lots.
Proven logistics and coordination reduce the construction period to a minimum. Customers can rely on Kraftanlagen, as it ensures a fault-free use of the supply network over a long service-life.
Kraftanlagen specialises in services that cover the entire life cycle of nuclear plants including post-operation and dismantling of such plants.
As part of large international projects like CERN and ITER, the design solutions of the company’s engineers and scientists are contributing to taking the results of high-level research and applying it on an industrial scale.
Construction, modernisation, shutdown and maintenance work for the chemical and petrochemical industry
For the industry, Kraftanlagen build piping systems and plants suitable for media, as well as temperature and pressure ranges. During revisions and for maintenance and repairs, the company will give customers total commitment on site.
As a partner of the chemical and petrochemical industry for many years, the Kraftanlagen Group maintains specialised branches in Germany and Austria, as well as subsidiaries in Romania.
Utility services: energy-efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly
Kraftanlagen creates the perfect conditions for the operation of plants, power plants and buildings. This is achieved using air conditioning and ventilation technology, media technology, water treatment and drinking water hygiene, electrical, instrumentation and control technology (EI&C), fire protection and safety technology, as well as service and maintenance.
The utility services of the Kraftanlagen Group stand for rapid response times, flexibility, commitment and the high availability of staff and spare parts. The company will have a permanent presence on site for large projects and regular customers. Keeping stocks of products and materials on the customer’s premises is also part of the service.
Fire protection: Fire fighting and alarm systems, service and maintenance
Kraftanlagen engineer, procure, install and maintain fire alarm and fire fighting systems for industry and power plants, as well as public and commercial buildings.
Only systematically linking fire protection systems, early fire detection systems, fire alarms and stationary fire fighting systems provides optimal protection for people, buildings and property. Kraftanlagen experts engineer and build complete fire detection and fire fighting systems.
Integrated engineering solutions and process technology
The company also engineers, calculates and designs plants that meet the needs of investors and operators, as well as environmental, safety and health regulations.
Experienced in process technology, EI&C technology and civil engeeniring, our engineers, technicians and project managers in Munich, Burghausen and Ploiesti develop top quality solutions.
Kraftanlagen is building and checking piping systems and components for power plants, industry and pipelines at our own production facilities in Eberswalde and Haiming.
With mechanical technology equipment for inductive and cold bending, heat treatment, cutting and welding tasks as well as mechanical processing, Kraftanlagen covers all market requirements for piping systems and components for power plant, chemical plant and industrial plant construction, offshore windfarms, and pipelines. It has many years of experience in processing high-alloyed steel and stainless steel.
Top-notch welding and testing
Kraftanlagen trains welders, consult on the choice of materials and conduct material tests and damage inspections. The company’s welding and testing technology department advises and supports the projects of the Kraftanlagen Group departments and ensures that its products meet the highest quality standards.
Kraftanlagen has developed its own process with an open volumetric receiver and air as work medium. It is inexpensive, environment-friendly and supplies power and heat from solar energy.
