Imtech: 31 million euro sustainable technology orders for Porsche Audi and Daimler
René van der Bruggen, CEO of Imtech: 'The automotive industry is and remains an important 'engine' of the German economy. Imtech occupies a strong position there as technology partner and is active, amongst others, in advanced testing technology with which new and efficient car models with low CO2 emissions are developed. Imtech also provides hightech test facilities and 'endtoline' testing technology and car body testing. With Germany as its strong base, Imtech is implementing energysaving production processes throughout Europe. Moreover, hightech test facilities are increasingly being exported from Germany to 'new' car manufacturing countries such as China, India and Thailand.'
Energysaving upgrade of Porsche's paint shop in Germany
In Zuffenhausen, Germany, Imtech is providing the sustainable technical infrastructure of a new 12.000 m² paint shop of Porsche. This paint shop will meet the highest possible energy efficiency requirements. Imtech is providing the integration of energy provisions with communication and data technology in hightech building automation, including ultramodern solutions for electrical solutions and fire safety. By support of its own innovative simulations programmes Imtech is integrating and creating the perfect setting for an optimal energy exploitation of the various parts of the technical infrastructure. This solution garantees for Porsche a solid economic feasibility with a payback period of around two year.
Sustainable production and assembly shops for Audi and Daimler in Germany and Hungary
In Ingolstadt, Germany, Audi is constructing a new body shop with an area of 80.000 m², including office space. Imtech is responsible for providing the entire technical infrastructure with optimum energy efficiency. Imtech will carry out the 24/7 available technology for the entire production process, such as electricity, heating, cooling, steam, water, and all other technical gasses. In Kecskemet, Hungary, a similar order has been obtained for a new assembly shop for Daimler.
Hightech test facilities for 'new' car manufacturing countries
In Germany, Imtech is one of the strongest parties in developing and realizing advanced testing technology. Imtech provides 'endtoline' test facilities from its own competence centre in Hamburg (UMSI, Environmental Simulation/Test Bed Technology) to almost the entire automotive industry. Recently, Audi ordered a new multifunctional test facility. The quality of this technology is so good that it is also increasingly being exported, for instance to the fastexpanding automotive industry in China, Thailand and India.
