Certified Safety at Any Time and Everywhere
Safety is one of the central issues in the construction and operation of power plants. We have more than 100 years of experience in manufacturing thermal power plant components – a solid base for knowing exactly the risks in a power plant project. Our components comply not only with international standards, but are also adjusted to the nationally valid norms. Our own standards often go far beyond statutory provisions: This is documented by our global certificates for quality assurance and safety and, for example, the RWE Safety Award or our nomination for the VGB Quality and Safety Award.
At all locations, just as in our projects, we strive for the best possible occupational safety. We set high standards for plant safety and risk management.
