Solutions to reduce downtime and improve the TCO of your facilities

The metallurgical, mining, cement and glass industries are facing international competition leading to increasing pressure on prices and growing market volatility. In addition, they are witnessing a tightening of safety and environmental standards.  

Steel, mining and cement companies are constantly looking for ways to improve their productivity and to achieve maximum efficiency while reducing their environmental impact.  

We support you to carry out your CAPEX and OPEX investment projects with the objective of reducing downtime and optimizing the performance, reliability and capital costs of your facilities for an improved TCO.


We optimize your CAPEX and OPEX investments

To face the problems of industrial equipment cooling or dedusting, our solutions, which are adapted to your systems, allow to optimize the performance of your dust collectors, fans, cooled equipment (hoods, skirts, cooling stacks) and process and utilities systems.  

Our Center of Excellence specialized in projects in the steel, mining, cement and glass industries integrates and coordinates all activities: design, implementation, project management, outage, mechanics, piping, on-site assembly and renovation. We have workshops integrating all the skills required for an optimized repair of your equipment. 
For your CAPEX projects  
  • Studies, calculations: 3D laser, 3D modelling for custom integration of shielding portions    
  • Lifting solutions for heavy equipment: thanks to our long experience in the heavy and chemical industries, we can guarantee the safe lifting of your heavy loads    
  • Scaffolding and insulation    
  • Design and implementation of fixed and mobile platforms
For your OPEX maintenance  
  • Machining    
  • Mechanical repair    
  • Mechanical welding    
  • Lubrication and greasing    
  • Rapid Response Service    
  • BocPredict predictive maintenance solutions


Specific expertise in the steel industry blast furnaces  

We offer integrated solutions for the construction, modification or repair/optimization of your blast furnace and its associated equipment. We provide the qualified trade experts and the supervision necessary to master the execution of your projects.  

Our specialized teams study the best solutions to optimize your blast furnaces: cooling, gas collection and washing, internal construction, casting floor, structures...  

After a structured preparation and planning phase, we develop processes for handling equipment inside blast furnaces (staves, etc.) using mechanized and robotic solutions. These technologies will allow safe interventions.  

We support you in the phases of hot and cold blast furnace shutdowns.
