Ingerop Deutschland continues to grow by acquiring the assets of RRI

Boosted by the growth of the German market, Ingerop Deutschland, through its subsidiary Codema, has acquired the assets of RRI (Rhein Ruhr International Consulting Engineers), a company based in Essen, whose fifteen employees joined the Group a few days ago. By April, the teams will be physically reunited in Codema’s Essen branch.

Founded in 1942, RRI (Rhein Ruhr International Consulting Engineers) offers design services for the construction of buildings on industrial sites. The 15 engineers and architects have numerous references on projects in Germany and abroad for ThyssenKrupp, Arcelor Mittal, BASF and Saint-Gobain.

“This asset purchase will enable us to expand the Ingerop Deutschland teams, which were having difficulty finding talented people because of the shortage of engineering jobs in Germany,” explains Thomas Sontag, Managing Director of Ingerop Deutschland and Codema.

“Nearly 350 employees are now working to ensure the success of our customers’ projects in Germany, and will enable our German subsidiary to offer a wider range of design services,” concludes Yves Metz, Chairman of the Ingerop Group.

Bau + Plan Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH joins the Ingerop Group

Ingerop is continuing its expansion by acquiring the German company BAU + PLAN Ingenieurgesellschaft.

Specialised in the water sector, the Munich-based company operates mainly in southern Germany. For Ingerop, this acquisition strengthens its international position, particularly in Germany.

Founded in 1998 and based in Munich, Bau + Plan has 15 employees, a turnover of 1.6 million euros and is a long-standing partner of our Munich teams. Specialising in hydraulics and electromechanical engineering for river structures, the company designs and supervises the construction of canals, fishways, mini hydroelectric power stations, locks, navigation dams and flood protection structures.

Bau + Plan’s expertise will enable Ingerop Deutschland to double its capacity in a key activity linked to the climate and environmental transition: mitigating the effects of climate change, rehabilitating structures and preserving biodiversity are at the heart of the projects developed by Bau + Plan.

Ingerop develops Pos’Hy, a sizing tool for hydrogen infrastructures

Ingerop has developed Pos’Hy, the first sizing tool for hydrogen production and distribution infrastructures linked to mobility, industry and energy storage.

The only one of its kind on the market, this new tool makes it possible to simulate and compare different scenarios, including the selection of equipment and the environmental and economic analysis of projects, reliably and quickly, according to customers’ needs.

Ingerop, a leading player in the hydrogen sector

Faced with the challenge of climate change, Ingerop has made ecology the primary strategic focus of its development. In this context, the engineering group sees hydrogen, whether renewable or low-carbon, as a means of decarbonising many sectors of the economy, such as industry and mobility, and improving the efficiency of renewable energies.

For nearly 10 years, Ingerop has been expanding its expertise in this field. Thanks to its multidisciplinary approach, it is positioned across the entire hydrogen value chain, with consultancy, project management and turnkey operations.

Pos’Hy, a unique design tool

At the same time, Ingerop has developed a unique tool for designing the entire hydrogen chain, from production to distribution, including compression and storage.

Suitable for projects involving mobility, industry or energy storage, for both public and private clients, it provides a real methodology for approaching the design of installations.

It identifies all the data needed to design an infrastructure in line with the customer’s predefined requirements, selects the necessary equipment (electrolysers, storage tanks, compressors, distribution stations), analyses the environmental aspect (floor space required, environmental risks, regulations), energy consumption and the economic aspect of the project.

Finally, it allows you to quickly simulate several scenarios for the same project, depending on the site, location and solution required, and to determine the investment and operating costs. It facilitates choices and trade-offs and helps to find the right balance between hydrogen production, storage and distribution, depending on the uses of each project.

Pos’Hy, a comprehensive tool

Pos’Hy is an ergonomic tool that allows you to design a project in several stages:

  1. Parameter setting of uses and consumers: selection of uses, the type of consumers and their periods of use, refuelling ranges and speeds in order to obtain an automatic assessment of consumption and hydrogen production requirements;
  2. Hydrogen production sizing: automatic sizing of hydrogen production equipment according to consumption and autonomy requirements, selection of electrolysers according to production technologies and desired availability rates;
  3. Selection of compression stages: selection according to pressure of use and desired storage volumes;
  4. Dispensing station settings: sizing the number of dispensers according to the type and number of vehicles and the desired filling time;
  5. Simulations of the operation of the facilities: hydrogen production vs. distribution, storage levels vs. distribution capacity, filling times for storage and vehicles, energy balance, land location, CAPEX / OPEX / TCO cost estimates.
