Balcke-Dürr is a leading supplier of components for increasing energy efficiency and reducing environmental impact for the industry
With more than 130 years of experience, the Balcke-Dürr Group offers innovative solutions to increase energy efficiency for utilities, O&G and the chemical industry, ranging from standard modules to complete thermal systems. Balcke-Dürr’s experienced engineers are specialized in solutions that meet the highest safety and sustainability requirements. The product portfolio includes heat exchangers, cooling towers, nuclear decommissioning and maintenance services. At its production sites in Germany and Italy, the Group employed around 500 people in 2020 and generated approximately EUR 160 million in revenues. In 2020, the Balcke-Dürr Group acquired Loterios SrL., a specialist in titanium products and heat exchangers to strengthen its position in the O&G market.
In 2021, Balcke-Dürr Group focuses on three strategic objectives: First, the group intends to strengthen its position in the nuclear energy market, second, to expand its business of decommissioning services of nuclear power plants and third, to step up its activities for clients of the O&G and chemical industry. Extensions to the product portfolio are also being examined, as is inorganic growth through acquisitions, e.g. in the original cooling division, which will continue to be an important pillar of the Balcke-Dürr Group beyond 2021.
“The realignment of Balcke-Dürr was consistently pursued and completed in 2019. In 2020, the company aims to broaden its relevant market, both in terms of new areas of application for our existing range of products and services and strategic acquisitions.”
