Bohlen Handel GmbH provides the complete range of services following the principle "Everything from one supplier":

Turn-key plants

From the urbanization of the site to the commissioning by the Bohlen Handel trained staff, everything is offered and realized by Bohlen Handel as main contractor.

Bohlen Handel provides technology, engineering performance and supervision of equipment assembly. The costumer is continuously advised and accompanied during commissioning. Experienced specialists start the plant and train the customer personnel on site. Depending on the customer's requirements, installation and assembly can be carried out under the supervision of Bohlen Handel employees or even in the customer's local authority, with part-time monitoring by the Bohlen Handel experts.

Other tasks, such as the urbanization and grubbing-up of land, civil engineering and the supply of infrastructure facilities, are carried out either by the customer himself. Alternatively Bohlen Handel takes these tasks up in the contract and commits itself to the Management of suitable subcontractors.

Bohlen Handels obligation to the customer does not end after the commissioning. Rather, it finds its continuation in a competent after-sales service. E.g. In the form of consultations for the customer in questions of further plant optimization. Also Bohlen Handel aids in the development of solutions for customer-specific questions in connection with technical problems. Finally, Bohlen Handel assists in the development and integration of follow-up plants and extensions to existing plants.

Modernization of plants or process units

In addition to the planning and construction of new plants, the services of Bohlen Handel also cover the areas of overhauling and/or modernizing existing plants or process units.

Studies for the improvement or modernization of existing sites are compiled by Bohlen Handel GmbH on the following basis. The existing plant is checked for its technological status, economic efficiency (raw material, auxiliary material and operating material consumption), product quality and consistency, automation, its safety and health standard, recycling processes and environmental friendliness.

The modernization of the plants can, for example, mean a capacity increase by eliminating bottlenecks in the existing plants and components. In addition it can mean a change to new process variants or new products or an exchange of machinery that need to be replaced or that are technologically outdated.

By eliminating bottlenecks in existing plant components, switching to new process variants, new products or replacing plant components that need to be replaced or are technologically obsolete, an increase in capacity can be achieved that may be of economic relevance.

All steps of plant modernization - planning, delivery, installation and commissioning - are carried out with the usual Bohlen Handel top quality.

Bohlen Handel provides solutions and cost estimates after completion of the analysis.

Specification, procurement, inspection, acceptance, certification services and shipment of equipment

Through the use of networked and high-performance IT systems, the planning phase at Bohlen Handel is fluent in the procurement of the equipment and finally in the delivery of the plant components in a timely manner.

Already during the component design phase, a technically and commercially optimal solution for the procurement of the equipment is sought in close cooperation with selected subcontractors. Machines and equipment are then manufactured by the respective subcontractors according to Bohlen Handel specifications under the control of the end product by Bohlen Handel experts to ensure the high quality standard of Bohlen Handel systems.
