Braden Europe

Bert Nix

"Developing components for power plants is pure custom work, explains Bert Nix. “No power plant is the same. Geographical and legal factors, as well as the local climate, largely determine the design of each plant. This calls for very specific know-how and innovation. Thanks to our location, near the University of Aachen, and the much more targeted expertise in mechanical engineering in Germany, we have succeeded in setting up intensive partnerships with companies in the German hinterland.”
