The optimization of interfaces is ensured in the process, succeeding right from the start. We focus on creating sustainable economical and ecological solutions for greenfield and brownfield projects. The turnkey solutions competence center offers customeroriented support for the following areas: civil engineering & construction, steel structures, building technologies (HVAC), fire protection, cranes and transport systems, corrosion protection and insulation, wastewater treatment and utilities, installation planning as well as complete construction site management.

Primetals Technologies is your reliable partner with worldwide experience in the development and implementation of turnkey plants. Close cooperation with all our technological departments ensures that projects can be executed exactly in line with your individual requirements at prime quality. We are a complete solution provider as well as a supplier of individual products and services.

Primetals Technologies provides you with various models for turnkey order execution: 

  • EPC Self-Performing: Primetals Technologies takes the contract as the general contractor for Engineering / Procurement / Construction, being responsible for the overall project management of process plant, turnkey services and turnkey equipment, providing own engineering and complete sub-supplier management 
  • EPC Partnering: jointly signing the customer contract with a consortium partner, a split of responsibilities is defined within the consortium.
  • Turnkey Service Model: in the EPCM-model (Engineering / Procurement / Construction / Management) two separate contracts are signed: a supply contract for the process plant and an EPCM contract for the balance-of-plant facilities.
