BENTELER makes it happen

The solutions created by BENTELER are often invisible but always essential. Whether they are in solar farms in Africa, in a water fun park in Switzerland or in countless makes of car worldwide: BENTELER makes it happen.


By rain, sun, wind or snow: The regional train to the island of Sylt departs in any weather. The engine that pulls this train was among the first 200 diesel locomotives in Germany to be fitted with corrosion-resistant Zistaplex® tubes from BENTELER.


Heat for houses, electricity for industry: Without energy there would be no life. In the US supplies are secured, from North Dakota to South Texas – with the aid of oil and gas tubes manufactured by BENTELER in the US.

In 2017 a new glass extension was opened at the House of European History in Brussels. Our Business Unit Glass Processing Equipment played its part in making this kind of breathtaking design possible. The 14-meter high panes of glass were processed by glass manufacturer sedak using machines from BENTELER.


Driving should be fun. But it also has to be safe. That's why leading vehicle manufacturers use products from BENTELER. Chery is just one example – the rapidly rising star in the Chinese export market. Key areas on the body of the Tiggo 7 contain high-strength hot-formed steel from BENTELER.


Before wind turbines can do their job of generating energy on the open sea, they first have to be put into place. The heavy-lift offshore cranes that carry out this work are subject to extreme conditions on the sea. BENTELER delivered 250 tons of specially made steel tubes for the construction of these lattice boom cranes.


Eight water slides with a total length of one kilometer: Fantastic fun all the way at the Säntispark Water Park in Abtwil, Switzerland. Kindlimann, BENTELER´s subsidiary in Switzerland, delivered 2,000 meters of heating and cooling tubes – just-in-time – for this fun experience.


In total BENTELER delivered over 100,000 special tubes to Africa. There world market leader Rioglass has set up solar farms to generate electricity from solar energy – and to make that happen, they needed tube solutions from BENTELER.


At BENTELER we don´t like rust. Our Zista Seal therefore is a special seal that protects tubes from corrosion. And it does it in an eco-friendly way, entirely without chrome VI. Here´s more on our tube technologies.


Asking tomorrow´s questions today – that´s a good strategy. Even better is to get the answers now. One of our answers to the megatrend of e-mobility is the BENTELER Electric Drive System.
