The service portfolios of the two companies complement each other optimally. As a result, the existing, project-related collaboration will be established on a basis for long-term, strategic cooperation. An agreement to this effect was signed between Kraftanlagen Heidelberg GmbH, a company of the Alpiq Group, and STEAG Energy Services GmbH. Kraftanlagen Heidelberg will contribute its extensive competences in power plant and process technology, while STEAG offers complementary expertise for storage and disposal facilities.
Collectively, the companies will be even more competitive in the future: as a reliable, internationally experienced partner for the planning and execution of nuclear dismantling projects as a general contractor or for individual projects. Furthermore, the cooperation partners Alpiq and STEAG plan and supply process engineering systems and components for dismantling, and offer projects for the planning and construction of waste treatment plants. With this cooperation, Alpiq is following the strategy to expand its core competences in energy and power plant technology and to seize new growth opportunities.
