Fichtner is one of the world’s leading independent engineering, project management and consultancy firms. Founded in 1922, the group has over 2,000 staff working in more than 100 countries around the world, generating an annual turnover in excess of 200 million Euros, derived entirely from the provision of independent technical and project management services.
Their engineering consultancy is entirely independent; and they are therefore in a position to give impartial advice in the best interests of our clients, uninfluenced by interests in the equipment supply or contracting industries.
Fichtner delivers the technical plans and provides engineering consultancy and services for demanding and complex infrastructure projects, such as power plants, energy transmission and distribution facilities, systems for drinking water supply and sanitation, and facilities for waste treatment. Engineers as well as organizational and business consultants work worldwide on solutions for exploiting regenerative energy sources, energy-efficient concepts, and waste management concepts, and advise on all aspects of emission trading to reduce greenhouse gases.
With the effective combination of corporate consultancy at the interfaces of technical planning and engineering consultancy, Fichtner provides customized solutions from one source to realize large-scale projects.
Fichtner is at the forefront of the global expansion of renewable energy.
Their consultants are involved in the development and construction of a wide range of new technologies and the transformation of grid infrastructures in many countries. They recognise the huge potential in the exploitation of wind and solar energy and bring international experience to project developers, investors and operators through specialist teams in Stuttgart, Istanbul, Genoa and Stockport.
Fichtner is experienced in the procurement and engineering of renewable energy technologies throughout all project phases, from feasibility studies to commissioning, from small-scale projects to major schemes involving several hundred megawatts of installed capacity. We utilise the latest IT systems for representation, analysis and assessment of the yield, impacts and design of renewable energy projects, using their proprietary Solpro software in the solar sector and WindPRO/WASP software packages in the wind sector.
Fichtner’s activities in the wind energy sector date back to late 1980s, with their consultancy participating in the development, appraisal and construction of a vast range of challenging projects both on-shore and off-shore.
Fichtner is internationally recognised for its excellence in solar engineering, recovering energy through both solar thermal and photovoltaic technologies. Their consultants have provided engineering services for numerous large solar power plant projects across five continents, with notable expertise in the integration of solar power with conventional power plants.
