New production facility for plant protection
Oświęcim, Poland

Based on an EPCm contract, Bilfinger Tebodin assisted Synthos with the design and construction of their new production facility for plant protection products. The facility comprises three buildings. The main one (10,800 m2) is used for storage, production and packaging of the finished product (liquid and granulated in bottles, bags and so on). Two smaller buildings will house the R&D and other support functions of the new business line.

To give an idea of the complexity of this project, no less than 40 different suppliers and contractors – read contracts - were involved. By doing the entire design with the use of BIM technology, Bilfinger Tebodin encouraged all parties to work in a uniform way. This improved communication and reduced the number of commonly occurring issues by approximately 50%.
