“The operation of company Bertrams Heatec AG will be closed as of 31 May 2016.” Since a few weeks, the Linde group spreads this news on the website of the captive subsidiary Bertrams Heatec AG (Switzerland). Dr. Dietmar Hunold, managing partner of the Bielefeld heat 11 GmbH & Co. KG, announced soon after to intensively look after the market for molten salt plants (molten salt plants). Around the topic molten salt as heat carrier, many customers search for an alternative procurement option for plants and services, continues Hunold.
Now the East Westphaliens take their announcement seriously: With Andrew Lochbrunner, former senior engineer and manager process engineering at Bertrams Heatec, they committed an important specialist with know-how and expert for the liquid salt technology. “An important goal of our cooperation is not only to preserve the liquid salt technology but to continuously develop it.” says Dr. Andreas Glueck, managing partner sales at heat 11.
For existing plant operators and new customers, heat 11 now covers the entire value-added chain in the field of liquid salt plants. “Mr. Lochbrunner will support us not only in the market cultivation and new customer acquisition but will provide also important incentives with his know-how and his experience.” Glueck is convinced.
Lochbrunner (46) was employed as process engineer at Bertrams Heatec AG since 1999. From 2014, he headed the department process engineering to the end.
heat 11 is doing good business with thermal oil plants also in the field of energy and process heat supply. The Bielefeld plant specialist expects an above-average growth also for this market in 2016. Main industries are the sectors chemicals and petrochemicals, the plastic und wood processing industry, the food processing industry as well as the energy sector (solar and biomass power plants).
