Plant construction from Dinklage throughout the world
Manufacturing large plants and components is one thing. Packing and transporting them carefully and safely before reliably assembling them on-site is an entirely different challenge. Hilgefort is a single-source supplier with many years of experience and highly qualified experts. Customers benefit from well-rehearsed procedures and a timely handover.
Transport requires well-orchestrated logistics combined with considerable detailed knowledge: Roads on the route often have to be closed to traffic, traffic lights and road signs dismantled and then put back together again and sometimes even the roadsides have to be reinforced. The plant components not only need to be packed securely, they must also be packed correctly for the climate at the final destination. For example, this includes filling them with antifreeze agents for the leak test, as well as using fumigated wood for deliveries to the USA.
The longest heavy goods transport in Lower Saxony
Hilgefort delivers its products reliably and safely – by land, by sea and, if necessary, even by air. In 2003 and 2007, Hilgefort manufactured two steam bundle dryers for a Japanese timber processing factory. These components were transported to Japan by air on an Antonov aircraft. An unusual, but impressive spectacle.

Transporting heavy cargo on roads is now almost routine for Hilgefort
The nearby inland ports of Sedelsberg, Papenburg and Bohmte make it possible for components which cannot be conveyed entirely by road owing to their size to be transported to the sea ports of Bremen and Bremerhaven. From there, the components can be safely and reliably shipped all over the world.
