Plant engineering
Optimised. Energy-saving. Economical.

Plant technology from 3defacto enables operators to achieve uniquely economical, energy-saving, and optimised production: the complete service package includes the planning phase, detailed planning, manufacture, assembly, and plant commissioning – all from a single source, while accounting for the individual plant operator’s requirements and working conditions.

The fact that this approach is effective and purposeful is shown by many successfully completed projects of highly economical and energy-saving plants and plant modules – from storage tanks, unloading stations and mixing plants to dosing technology for the production and further processing of PU prepolymers or basic components, to name just a few examples.

As a complete supplier, we do away with multiple contractors and are able to execute projects on time. In addition, we guarantee the use of high-quality plant components as well as compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. 3defacto offers the highest level of professionalism along with maximum investment security and plant availability thanks to years of experience and specialist expertise in the fields of plant construction, mechanical engineering, engineering, process technology, automation technology, electrical engineering, and control technology.
