Successful with Sustainability

Success Story | Buchs

Hitachi Zosen KRB AG – the specialist for waste-fueled power plants

Waste-fueled power plants conserve our resources, transforming waste into energy. The pressure vessels and machine components of the Swiss quality company manufactured at the company headquarters in Buchs make an important contribution to the sustainable and long-term supply of energy. Because revision and repair of these systems are the core competence of Hitachi Zosen KRB. voestalpine Böhler Welding is an enduring partner here.

Standard and individual production

Membrane walls and tube bundles with and without weld cladding for various boiler systems are also among the portfolio, like panels with cladding for combustion chambers or deslaggers of multiple-meter length and height. The company sets standards in the revision of systems, in which components are newly and individually manufactured, even though the original plans no longer exist.

International success

Using its own production in the modern factory in Buchs, customer requests are optimally fulfilled in terms of dimension, design and delivery time. The Swiss specialists are successful in their home markets of Switzerland and Germany with their individual solutions. There is also an individual solution for the most commonly used welding consumable. CEO Heinrich Denzler says, "We supply our customers quality of high individuality. voestalpine Böhler Welding offers us the same thing in wires."

"As the Swiss company with the most experience in cladding, we also rely on welding consumable suppliers with the most experience in this area."

Individual welding consumables

Modern welding robots are used for manufacturing. The speed, smooth process, seams of impeccable quality which spare reworking by hand, and even the wear on burners are all important criteria here. To comply with the parameters according to the specific requirements of Hitachi Zosen KRB, voestalpine Böhler Welding specially rewinds the wire and adapted processes to support an optimum welding process and production sequence.

"Our cooperation with voestalpine Böhler Welding is very good," emphasizes Heinrich Denzler who continues, "voestalpine Böhler Welding field service regularly comes to us at Buchs; in special cases, the engineers from Hamm come to our premises quickly; and we are well advised when basic materials change or when we face new and unique challenges."

"voestalpine Böhler Welding engineers are quickly on-site when questions arise in our factory."
