Experience meets innovation

FERROSTAAL is known worldwide as a technology-independent project developer and integrator for industrial plants in the fields of oil & gas, renewable energies, PtX and other selected industries. Our roots as an industrial service provider go back to the 1920s. As a system integrator for PtX technologies, we bring together project partners - such as licensors, engineers, service providers, component suppliers and assembly companies for industrial plant construction - and offer tailor-made financing concepts if required.

In this way, FERROSTAAL is indirectly making a significant contribution to the conversion of emission-intensive industries and means of transport in particular to climate-neutral energy sources and decarbonisation.

FERROSTAAL draws on decades of experience in power plant construction and oil and gas extraction in many industrialized and emerging countries. FERROSTAAL's strong presence in Brazil and Chile provides excellent access to the most important PtX markets.
