Siemens in Berlin - Convoi

A major Siemens order in the capital city of Berlin

After long, successful negotiations, Convoi obtained the award of contract for the relocation of turbine blade production from Berlin to Budapest/Hungary. A special project that called for a rigorous schedule. The basis for this order are the good business relationships between Convoi GmbH and the Siemens concern as well as the successful projects that we have carried out jointly in recent years. Over 50 processing machines (Mägerle, Heller, Hermle, Mitsubishi etc.) from various manufacturers will be relocated in individual, time-phased steps.

Over 50 processing machines (Mägerle, Heller, Hermle, Mitsubishi etc.) from various manufacturers will be relocated in individual, time-phased steps. The entire relocation of the operation with highly complex processing machines in the μ-range requires the most accurate logging. Also, adherence to high security requirements and in-house briefings requires daily updates. It will be exciting in Budapest. The newly built hall is ready exactly two days before the deadline on which our assembly team will begin bringing in the first machines.

“We have to take into consideration police escort, routing measures, overhead wires, traffic lights, static bridge calculations, route surveys and consultations with the railway companies. This is just a selection of the non-everyday challenges.”

Along with the coordination of the mechanics, electricians, supervisors, software and surveying engineers in Germany as well as in Hungary, there is another additional unique aspect. Transport of the equipment requires extensive coordination with the authorities. “We have to take into consideration police escort, routing measures, overhead wires, traffic lights, static bridge calculations, route surveys and even consultations with the railway companies. This is just a selection of the non-ev eryday challenges.” says our project management. All in all, this project, which should come to an end at the beginning of 2019, is a compr ehensive, exciting and challenging assignment for Convoi.
