BUCHEN-ICS Industrial-Catalyst-Service has been developing during the last 30 years to become the largest European service provider in the field of catalyst handling and mechanical work for the international (petro)chemical industry as well as for the oil and natural gas processing industry.We accomplish all the tasks expected of a modern service provider to major industries: total shutdown management; plant preparation; catalyst replacement with high performance vacuum and screening units and individual loading procedures; mechanical works (e.g. welding works, removal and installation of complete reactor internals, neutralisation of internals, camera inspection of internals); regeneration (turnaround regeneration, double change catalyst charge); recycling (of high-quality spent catalyst and disposal of unusable spent catalyst); transport and logistics
All reactor works are carried out under nitrogen atmosphere and our complete equipment, including our own certified (CE 0158) LSS Life Support System (breathing protection system) based on a NASA development, is designed for nitrogen operations and handling with auto-combustible material.
Quality, safety, health and environment protection are firmly fixed components of our corporate philosophy. This means it is a matter of course that our group of companies is certified in all prevalent QSHE standards and – far more important – that all work for our clients is carried out in line with these requirements. In order to provide these requirements we create risk assessments, carry out project-related toolbox meetings, make site tours and project documentation. Our more than 300 own local catalyst handling specialists are medically assessed in regular intervals and educated and trained to the same firmly fixed principles.
Since 1979 BUCHEN-ICS has been grown up to a group of 13 companies so that we are available to our clients with local staff and equipment on-site at extremely short notice throughout Europe 365 days a year.
