Energy generation and distribution – sustainable technologies for a better future

While fossil resources are in ever scarcer supply, demand for energy is growing – throughout the world. So how can we manage energy responsibly? And how can we develop renewable energy sources?

We work continuously on innovative solutions for the production, transportation, storage, and transformation of renewable and fossil energies.

In coke-oven technology thyssenkrupp is the number-one address when it comes to building new facilities and above all modernizing existing coking plants.

Wind energy is another key strength of thyssenkrupp. Our slewing bearings are the ideal choice for wind turbines. With our unique know-how we cater precisely to local requirements. Nine out of ten wind turbine manufacturers rely on thyssenkrupp components such as slewing bearings and rings. These components are also used in solar, tidal, and marine current power plants.

Electricity from renewable sources is fueling demand for energy storage systems . We are developing two technologies further: redox flow batteries and hydrogen electrolysis.

All this makes thyssenkrupp a valued and reliable partner to the energy generation and distribution industry.

Coke plant technologies

thyssenkrupp supplies world-leading cokemaking technologies. We design and build complete coke plants of various types for the production of coke from different grades of coal. Whether horizontal chamber kilns, heat recovery or byproduct systems – thanks to our know-how and innovative processes our coke plants meet the latest environmental standards and reliably produce high-quality coke for internal use or for sale.

Chemical plants

Thyssenkrupp creates complete chemical plants, from engineering, procurement and construction through to technical and operating services. We offer equipment and technologies for fertilizers, base chemicals, electrolysis, polymers, gas technologies, oil & gas, as well as biotechnology and high-pressure applications. With our engineering expertise and decades-long experience, we work together with customers to develop reliable, efficient and sustainable solutions.



Slewing bearings and rings from thyssenkrupp are essential construction and connecting elements for machines. They are used in wind turbines, cranes, excavators, telescopes, solar and tidal power plants. Our products are developed and designed exactly in accordance with our customers' requirements. Working closely together, we find solutions which are unique in terms of design, material properties, and performance.
