Kemira expands partnership with Bilfinger to include chemical plant in Sweden

By Mary Page Bailey |

Kemira Oyj (Helsinki, Finland; www.kemira.com) is expanding its longstanding cooperation with Bilfinger SE (Mannheim, Germany; www.bilfinger.com) to Sweden. Bilfinger, which has been providing Kemira with various services at the Austrian location in Krems since 2001, now also assumes exclusive responsibility for maintenance and project-related services, including engineering, at Kemira’s Helsingborg location in southern Sweden from June 1, 2018. This success was preceded by a comprehensive selection procedure from which Bilfinger emerged the winner thanks mainly to the Bilfinger Maintenance Concept (BMC). The contract in Sweden runs for a period of about three-and-a-half years and has a volume of around €25 million.

“The expansion of the longstanding cooperation with an international customer like Kemira underscores our strong market position”, says Gerald Pilotto, Executive President of Bilfinger’s Maintenance, Modifications & Operations (MMO) Continental Europe division. “As a leading industrial services provider, we have for decades been ensuring that our customers can focus on their core business while we optimize their maintenance costs and, at the same time, increase the productivity of their plants.”

The service portfolio in Krems covers engineering and maintenance with a focus on mechanical as well as electrical and automation engineering. Bilfinger also carries out projects related to the construction and modification of plants and is responsible for material management.

In Helsingborg, where Kemira has about 300 employees and produces chemicals for water treatment as well as bleach, Bilfinger is now delivering a scope of services similar to what is provided in Krems. Helsingborg is Kemira’s largest location.
