ABUS cranes in the new production plant of Stork Thermeq at Hengelo in the Netherlands
After residing in the center of Hengelo for 150 years, Stork Thermeq (www.stork.com) moved to the industrial estate of Kanaalzone Hart van Zuid. Stork Thermeq is part of Stork Technical Services.
Stork Thermeq stands for building, maintaining and optimising of production facilities.
As well as designing and engineering products and concepts for new constructions, they also deliver efficiency upgrades and availability improvements in the context of retrofitting or modifying projects.
Stork Thermeq’s business originally started in boiler manufacturing; their boilers are still being employed all over the World. Today they work with power and process industry operators and EPC contractors in Europe and the UK, the Americas, Africa, Caspian, Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
Their specialist project teams have a broad understanding of the energy production process and in-depth process knowledge of the water-steam cycle. And they combine that with a long OEM track record with in-depth process knowledge and excellent technical capabilities to help customers build, maintain and optimise their production facilities. Stork Thermeq’s certified approach to project management, uncompromising commitment to safety and their impressive technical capabilities all combine to provide an unrivalled service.
