We develop and optimize energy plants and their applications by means of static and dynamic simulation as well as prototype/pilot plant construction and testing. Our range of services includes the customer-specific conception, calculation, design, planning and integration of energy plants as well as the creation and evaluation of technical concepts and industrial energy efficiency studies. We are pioneers of sustainable developments and reliable companions of industry and economy.

Flow simulation and turbomachinery

From our many years of experience in the development and optimization of tailor-made turbomachinery, we own, in addition to classic flow simulation tools, in-house design tools such as our CFD workflow for automated geometry optimization and a computing cluster with more than 400 cores.

Energy efficiency and renewable heat in industry

The energy transition policy specifies strict energy and CO2 savings targets. We support you in identifying and localizing savings potentials by holistic simulation of your energy supply system and in raising them by developing and realizing innovative processes. We advise and support you in designing or redesigning your supply system for the provision of process heat, towards a low-CO2 system through the integration of renewable heat.

Climate-neutral industries

We support you in the transformation of your energy supply systems. Together, we develop a plan of action tailored to your site to achieve a perspective climate-neutral energy supply while maintaining the usual security of supply.


Steam Turbocharger

Coupling steam and compressed air networks

How industrial companies can halve both, their primary energy consumption and their CO2 emissions when generating compressed air.


Geothermal paper drying

Process steam from deep geothermal energy

Paper manufacturing is one of the most energy-intensive industries. The enormous amounts of energy and heat needed to dry the paper webs are still provided today to a large extent by fossil fuels. The "Kabel ZERO" project is investigating how the required process steam can be generated using renewable heat from deep geothermal energy.


Energy systems engineering

For us, research and development does not end at the laboratory door – we go further. We plan and set up test rigs and prototype systems in our technical center or in containerized on our test area. Moreover, we realize and test innovative prototype and pilot plants at the customer's site.

Planning and construction of test stands, prototype and pilot plants



Prototyping the use of low calorific coal mine methane (CMM)

A lean gas burner, a steam boiler and a micro steam turbine are used for the utilization of low calorific mine gas.




Compressed air systems and energy storage

Compressed air can be used both as a storage medium in compressed air energy storage systems / CAES and as a working medium in industrial compressed air networks. The efficient generation and storage of compressed air is always of central importance.
