Operations & Maintenance

Fichtner's process knowledge and experience provides clients with unparalleled technical support during plant operation

Building on our extensive knowledge of thermal power and process plants construction, combined with our experience gained from operational plants, Fichtner offers exceptional operational and maintenance support to our clients. Our technical knowledge and expertise can assist in optimising plant operation and maintenance and improving plant performance.


For more than 20 years, Fichtner has supported clients on plant refurbishments and process improvements at existing facilities. In additional to building our own skills and systems, Fichtner has recruited a mixture of experienced engineers who have either been contractors or who have operated plants. By combining these elements, our team can provide clients with an ongoing support in partnership with their own operating teams.

Our main focus is to provide specialist technical support to assist with larger internal projects such as outages or modification, and ensuring best practise maintenance regimes. We offer the market an advisory service which complements the client’s operating team and which provides experience gained from other power and process plants.
