Babcock Noell GmbH


World Wide Activity of Babcock Noell in the Fields of Nuclear Services, Nuclear Technology, Magnet Technology and Environmental Technology

Others promise the future ... we work on it.

The Würzburg based Babcock Noell GmbH is a company of the Bilfinger SE. Operating worldwide in the product areas of nuclear service, nuclear technology, magnet technology and environment technology, Babcock Noell delivers experience into practice with great success. Services range from developing, planning, delivering, and commissioning up to operating the delivered plants and the relevant equipment. The majority of the 350 employees is working in the field of engineering.

For the operators of nuclear power plants and nuclear technology plants, the nuclear service is a reliable service and assembly partner. The backbone of this area is formed by a distinct team of around 60 experienced service and assembly engineers specialized in performing the sophisticated work in nuclear power plants and nuclear facilities.

40 years of experience, as well as close cooperation with research facilities, have made Babcock Noell a competent partner in nuclear technology. For many years now, Babcock Noell has been actively performing the demanding tasks of modernising and retrofitting nuclear power plants. For nuclear power plant construction, Babcock Noell provides components for the building technology and machine technology and supplies man locks and material locks as well as building containment and stainless-steel pool cladding for the reactor building itself.

As early as in the 1970s, Babcock Noell provided components for large research facilities such as the vacuum tanks for the Petra accelerator ring in Hamburg. In the early 1990s, Babcock Noell launched the area of magnet technology with the development of large superconductor magnet systems for high-energy physics and nuclear fusion. There then followed contracts for the series magnets for the fusion experiment “Wendelstein 7-X” and the Hadron collider “LHC” at the research centre CERN, Geneva. A unique coil production was developed and an assembly plant established for these purposes. Today Babcock Noell designs and produces magnets, coils, undulators and spectrometers for various international research facilities with particular experience in using superconductors in magnet systems. Babcock Noell also undertakes individual development tasks for such projects.

The engineers in our environmental technology department have up to 25 years of personal experience in the planning and construction of flue gas cleaning plants for conventional power stations and industrial applications. We provide complete systems with the necessary components such as absorbers, containers, raw gas and clean gas channels, pipe work, filters, pumps and controls. Furthermore, we supply efficient, economical and low-maintenance plants for cleaning exhaust gas from incineration and production facilities.
