For many years, ThyssenKrupp has been active in engineering and constructing process plants for the Oleochemical Industry.  During this time we have successfully cooperated with Inventa Technologies, Singapore to deliver class-leading Oleochemical batch plants using innovative Jet Reactor technology for alkoxylates, esters, and amine and nitrogen products derived from natural fats and oils.

In 2014, we grew our Specialty Chemical and Oleochemical Technology Portfolio through the acquisition of a number of processes from Inventa.  In order to further strengthen our sector footprint, we also invested in a new Research and Development center in Rayong (Thailand) which will open in 2016.  This R&D centre, which includes laboratory and pilot plant facilities, is integrated within our main engineering office in Thailand, and will become the technology and competence hub for Oleochemical Technologies within ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions.

In all, ThyssenKrupp is committed to investing more than USD 20 Million into the new technologies and related purchases. 

“Technology leadership and innovation in combination with engineering expertise, procurement and project management capabilities are valued by our global customers. The acquisition of Inventa’s well recognized technologies showcases both our commitment to the region and our determination to expand our technology portfolio into strategic growth markets,” said Detlef Sudmann, Managing Director of ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions in Thailand.

The acquisition comprises three technology platforms in the fields of alkoxylation, esterification, and fatty amines.  Based on these platforms, our plants are setting new standards in safety, performance, product quality, automation, and efficiency.  When combined with our expertise and competencies in the design and fabrication of modularized plants, and our ability to provide complete process solutions from concept to commissioning including EPC Lump Sum, we offer our customers full flexibility in delivery of process plant, utilities and infrastructure – all provided ‘out of one hand’.
