Bird's eye view of the new Flottweg plant

New construction of a production plant
Flottweg SE, Vilsbiburg

Flottweg SE is one of the world's leading solution providers in mechanical liquid-solid separation. For the construction of a new plant on a greenfield site PROTEMA was assigned with the detailed planning as well as the realization support.


Tasks and Objectives

Due to the rapid growth in turnover of Flottweg SE, the construction of a further plant (Plant 2) had become necessary. With an investment volume of more than € 50 million, the new assembly plant with integrated service and repair area, logistics handling with a manual pallet rack (6,300 storage spaces) and an office building were built on an area of 55,000 m² within two years. The move-in and commissioning of the new Plant 2 took place in 2021.

The aim of the project was to improve floor space arrangements and material flow with Plant 2, thus doubling production capacity. Over a period of 1.5 years, PROTEMA was responsible for the rough and detailed planning and supported the planning and implementation of the plant structure planning for machine assembly and plant construction with the associated logistics trades and the interface support to the architectural and construction planning.

Processes and Solutions
  • Analysis of product range, order structure and derivation of the ideal material flow

  • Determination of future space requirements based on the specified growth scenarios

  • Arrangement of the assembly and logistics areas in an ideal layout taking into account the material flow

  • Derivation of the rough concept for production and logistics

  • Layout planning for plant structure and areas incl. allocation of areas on the new site

  • Detailing and detailed planning of the layout and equipment

  • Preparation of a functional tender for the realization of a high-bay warehouse

  • Support in interface coordination between production and logistics as well as architecture, construction and technical building equipment

  • Support of the project management with regard to scheduling, documentation and coordination with architects and specialist planners

Results and Benefits
  • Efficient arrangement of assembly and logistics equipment in the building

  • Optimization of the material flow

  • Optimal use of space in the plant structure

  • Expansion of production capacities

  • New technology solutions for logistics and transport processes

  • Documentation of processes


Flottweg SE, headquartered in Vilsbiburg, Bavaria, was founded in 1932 and is one of the world's leading suppliers of centrifuges, belt presses and equipment for mechanical solid-liquid separation. In many industrial sectors, they take on key functions in the clarification of liquids, separation of liquid mixtures, and thickening and dewatering. The products are developed and manufactured exclusively in Germany and exported to more than 100 countries around the world.

The consultant team, consisting of experts from the factory and logistics planning division, worked closely with the specialist departments at the site and jointly developed the realized solution. It was precisely the mixture of technical experts from Flottweg, architects, specialist planners and the team from PROTEMA that formed the basis for future-oriented factory planning.
