Imtech: 105 million euro energy management contracts in Germany

Gouda - Imtech (technical services provider in Europe) has obtained several new energy management contracts with industrial producers like Voith Paper, Andritz Hydro, SKF, Böhringer, Freudenberg and Winkelmann in Germany, with a combined value of over 105 million euro. Energy efficiency will be improved considerably at these companies, resulting in the realisation of substantial energy savings - from a minimum of 20% to a maximum of 40%. These new orders confirm Imtech's strong position in the European energy market.

Imtech CEO René van der Bruggen: 'Imtech is a leading player in the European energy market. Our range of services focuses on both energy savings and sustainable energy production. Last year, Imtech realised revenue of over 1 billion euro in the European energy market. Examples include: decentralised power plants, co-generation plants, the production of energy from waste or biomass, thermal energy and energy-efficient offices ('green offices'). In addition, Imtech is the preeminent European specialist in the area of energy contracting. The new energy orders for a large number of industrial producers in Germany serve as proof of the market's faith in our added value.'

Energy contracting model: numerous advantages
Working on the basis of an energy contracting model, Imtech assumes complete responsibility for many years for the optimum provision, maintenance and management of all energy supplies, including the management of emission credits, on behalf of its customers (industrial customers, commercial services providers, property managers, hospitals, etc.). In addition, Imtech optimises energy performance through the integration of the entire energy process in all operational systems and processes and through possible adaptations to the energy infrastructure. During the term of the contracts, this not only leads to high energy efficiency, but also to a substantial reduction in emissions and cost savings. Naturally, in this process, Imtech takes the (energy) requirements of the users into account and guarantees that the energy supplies are of the highest possible quality.

New industrial energy management orders in Germany
Imtech is realising a new shared power plant for Voith Paper (supplier to the international paper industry) and Andritz Hydro (international producer of hydro-electric power stations), both located in Ravensburg. Throughout the 15-year contract term, Imtech will provide both companies with the required energy for the heating and steam for production processes in all buildings and production facilities. Bundling the energy requirements of both customers enables the realisation of the best energy-efficient solutions.
In Hannover, pharmaceutical company Böhringer is establishing a European centre for research into and development of animal vaccines. For a period of 15 years, Imtech will bear responsibility for all energy supplies and the provision of heat, steam, cold, compressed air, water and electrical energy to all research facilities.
Imtech is providing SKF Sealing Solutions, a Leverkusen-based subsidiary of the SKF Group (the world's largest manufacturer of rolling bearings), with a comprehensive integrated energy solution. During a 10-year period, the energy costs will be substantially reduced, parts of the technical energy infrastructure will be renewed and at the same time all energy supplies will be concentrated around SKF's strategic core activities.
For the new plant of Freudenberg (international supplier to the automotive industry) in Berlin, Imtech is realising a high-tech power plant with the accompanying technical infrastructure and an energy management solution for a period of 10 years.
Imtech has already been successfully active for several years in the area of energy management for Winkelmann (another international supplier to the automotive industry) in Ahlen. After surpassing the energy savings estimate in the existing contract, Imtech has landed a second 10-year energy management contract aimed at further improving Winkelmann's energy efficiency.

Recently Imtech announced that the company has obtained an order worth 400 million euro to provide energy contracting including the energy management in 800 buildings, mainly used by a large logistics service provider in Germany.
