German industrial giant eyes PH entry
After leading a quiet operation of over a century in the country, Germany's leading industrial technology giant Thyssenkrupp is gearing up operations in the country targetting game-changing technology applications especially for power, infrastructure, cement, fertilizer, chemicals, among others.
Jan Lueder, CEO regional cluster Asia Pacific, cited the company has a diversified and integrated engineering applications that can make industrial firms operations more efficient.
Lueder said Thyssenkrupp has expertise in technology and engineering applications for renewable energy generation. He cited Thyssenkrupp applications for sugar plant's power generation using its waste.
Since renewable power cannot be assured 24 x 7, Thyssenkrupp has other technology that will allow the use of conventional fuels to ensure continuous power supply. Fertilizer plants can also make use of its conveyor technology for transport of their products. Similar technology can be applied to cement and petrochemical plants. It used to have an EPC (engineering, procurement, construction), for a plastic manufacturing plant.
Thyssenkrupp, which is managing the global value chain of titanium materials for Boeing, offers similar services for companies. It has also the capability to execute turkey epc project. On infrastucture, Thyssenn CEO for Asia Pacific Vivek Bhatia said they offer sound construction technology. (BCM)
