  • Dear Readers,

    The term “shutdown” is really not the best choice of word for describing what our customers and we do during a major turnaround. The only thing that has been shut down is the facility itself – everything else around it is a hive of activity. In fact, work begins months before a shutdown is due to take place as everything has to be meticulously planned and organised and all possible parts produced in advance so that the plant can be up and running again in as short a time as possible.

    BUCHEN and XERVON took part in two major shutdowns earlier this year – both at the same time. All in all, the two companies deployed around 1,200 employees over this four-week period to carry out a whole range of different tasks. Very few companies in Germany are able to take on such a mammoth project. Read our feature article to find out how we succeeded in doing this.

    Brand-new technological developments

    Another thing that creates a hive of activity at our company is our desire to solve our customers’ problems and find bespoke solutions that meet their exact requirements. We are constantly working on further improving our services by developing technical innovations that make processes even more efficient. We have come up with a number of smart ideas for a range of different applications. From closed loop processes, to getting maintenance work fit for the future with condition monitoring, all the way through to creating our own complex technological developments such as the dense phase conveyor system and our very own industrial cleaning robot, the automated industrial cleaner (AIC).

    No matter what development we may be looking at, our focus is always on improving workplace safety. As a result, we have launched a variety of product innovations onto the market recently that makes working in boilers much safer. We have also been awarded a number of work safety prizes from our customers – demonstrating that this subject is just as important for them as well. And we are happy to admit that we are extremely proud to have been awarded these. They are proof that our ongoing efforts to improve work safety are bearing fruit. Whether it be RWE, EVONIK or Covestro – to name just a few – they have all commended us and thanked us for the hard work we carry out in this area. We, too, would like to say a big “thank you” to them: for giving us these awards and giving us the opportunity to work with them. We are also doubly proud because we operate in such a wide range of fields, all of which – such as tank cleaning work – have their own particular hazards and risks. Our experts are in high demand both for onshore and, in particular, offshore projects. From the North Sea to the easternmost region of Russia: our customers like to make the very most of our in-depth know-how and specialist technology.

    Outstanding scaffolding services

    What’s more, the latest scaffolding projects in Sweden and Austria clearly demonstrate just what a name XERVON has made for itself as one of the leading European scaffolding businesses. Both projects involve extremely complex requirements, whether it has to do with weather protection or special anchorage solutions. In fact, we are well-known for delivering specialty scaffolding solutions in all of the countries we operate in. Which was one of the reasons why we invested in our scaffolding business in the German town of Eisenhüttenstadt. With both the workforce and workload having expanded over the last few years, we decided to invest in our employees, in our customers and in the region as a whole.

A new sales office in Hamburg

XERVON GmbH recently opened a new sales office in Hamburg in order to grow its business in and around the city as well as in the states of Schleswig-Holstein and Lower Saxony. Two project managers and a team of operatives are there to offer the company’s wide range of services covering thermal, cold, acoustic and fire protection insulation – either for individual projects or as part of a service agreement.

Specialists who are prepared for every eventuality

    • Branch manager, Frank Würzburg, commented: “We’ve got a great set-up here, both in terms of personnel and technical equipment. We are more than ready to serve the north of the country and have in fact already completed a number of projects.” The company has, for example, carried out extensive insulation work for a manufacturer of medical grade white oil and Vaseline based in Hamburg. “This was a large-scale project involving numerous tanks and the customer was more than happy with the results. We probably couldn’t have a better reference for future tank renovation and tank extension projects,” Frank Würzburg concluded.

      XERVON has in-depth knowledge of the different types of industrial insulation needed by the processing sector. This goes way beyond conventional pipe insulation. Whether it involves storage tanks or turbines, pumps or pipes, fittings or ventilation systems – XERVON has the right processes and materials to meet their customers’ specific requirements, no matter how complex the task. It is, for example, one of the very few companies in Europe able to insulate tank wagons.

    In fact, bespoke solutions are needed no matter what type of insulation is being installed as it always has to be adapted to ensure it meets the local conditions. Which is why XERVON offers its customers the full of range of services – from providing professional advice, to taking on the detail design engineering and the logistics (including supplying staff and material), all the way through to installing the materials at the plant.

    The company’s portfolio comprises thermal insulation for both normal and high temperature environments; cold insulation using standard or customised materials; fire protection measures in chemical and petrochemical plants, power stations and office buildings; as well as acoustic insulation for pipes, pumps, gas and steam turbines and ventilation systems.
