First Bosch Thermotechnology plant in Russia opened
Gas heating boilers and industrial boilers for the Russian and Eastern European market
The official opening of the first Bosch Thermotechnology production site in Russia took place at the beginning of July. The new plant at Engels is situated some 900 kilometres south of Moscow on the Volga, and it will produce in future wall-mounted gas heating boilers, as well as industrial boilers, for the Russian and Eastern European market.
8,300 square metre total area
The ground-breaking ceremony took place in May 2013, and just 56 weeks later all the work had been completed. Production could begin. The new plant comprises a total area of 8,300 square metres. The production area accounts for 6,200 square metres, while 2,100 square metres are available for offices. When production is in full swing, there will be around 190 employees at the new site.
Heating boilers and industrial boilers
Wall-mounted heating boilers for the residential sector, as well as large boilers for commercial and industrial applications, are manufactured in Engels. The gas heating boilers, which provide room heating and domestic hot water, are produced in the output classes of 18 to 24 kilowatt. They are marketed under the Bosch and Buderus brands. As regards the large industrial boilers, six types of boiler will initially be manufactured with outputs from 2.5 to 6.5 megawatt.
First products from Engels
The first industrial heating boiler Unimat UT-L for the Russian market was produced in Engels in May of this year. The heating boiler achieves very high efficiency and is suitable for all burner systems, as well as producing very low emissions during combustion and keeping CO2 pollution low with its energy-efficient operation. The boiler with its Unimat 3-pass design is seen as exceptionally robust, reliable and durable. In addition to this, it can be used very flexibly: for example in hospitals, office buildings, in all sectors of industry or as reserve or peak load boiler in heating stations.
