March 2011 – July 2012

MTU Aero Engines produces so-called “blisks” (Blade Integrated Disks) on a total area of 10,000 square meters in one of the world’s most modern machine parks. These are integral high-tech components for modern engine compressors. The production center, which extends the Munich headquarter, consists of a one-storey production hall, which is connected to a three-storey administration block with combination and open-plan offices.

Special challenges in this case were the required high-precision production conditions and a flexible utilization concept for the hall, which placed the highest demands on the technical building facilities, especially ventilation and a constant temperature. In addition to the state-of-the-art production concepts and high flexibility in the supply of the production machines, the integration of very large components and plant parts was an essential factor in the design and construction of the building.

Energy efficiency and economy were the top priorities during planning. Utilization of highly efficient heat recovery systems using process heat in combination with a well-water cooling system sets new benchmarks in energy efficiency for such production buildings and enables the company to save two thirds of its energy costs.
