Mr. Hall, the process industry has been particularly affected by the transition to renewable energy. What can Bilfinger do to help its customers meet the challenges that go with it?
When it comes to industrial plants, there are three approaches to meeting climate targets: switching from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources, further increasing energy efficiency, and scrubbing or preventing environmentally damaging emissions. In each of these fields, Bilfinger draws on multifaceted expertise and many years of experience with the relevant technologies.
How can we as a service provider respond to these diverse needs?
We mobilize our corporate units to pool available expertise and jointly tap the relevant markets. We put together specialist teams that focus intensively on such key topics as energy efficiency, flue gas purification, CO2 issues or the use of hydrogen. We strive to support, advise and guide our customers through all requirements relating to the energy transformation. At the same time, we continue to further hone our product portfolio.
What opportunities for future business development do you see opening up as a result?
The changes in energy supply will remain a central issue for years to come across the globe. The market for smart solutions geared to tackling the associated problems will continue to grow in the future, which will in turn present great opportunities. That means our chances of making our mark as a leading supplier in this sector are good.
