About us
Over 100 years ago the machine, vessel and boiler construction had the beginning in Hohenthurm, located in the middle of Germany, close to Halle (Saale).

The company, which was founded by Messrs Natorp and Eberhardt in 1908, carried out all types of sheet metalwork and forging, especially on high pressure components for locomotives and heavy mining equipment. Since the company was founded its name as a constructor of apparatus and as a boilermaker has spread far beyond the borders of Germany.

The company was nationalised after the Second World War and manufactured complete marine boilers and boilers for stationary applications as well as boiler components for customers throughout the world.

In the 1970s and 1980 transport equipment for nuclear power plants was manufactured at Hohenthurm under the auspices of COMECON (Council for Mutual Economic Assistance). Considerable experience in the processing of stainless steels was also acquired during this period.

Following the reunification of Germany the privatised company, which was at that time operating as a limited liability company, embarked on a phase of adapting the product profile to the drastically changed market conditions. As a result two legally independent companies were established at the Hohenthurm location: DH KRAFTWERKSSERVICE HOHENTHURM GmbH & Co.KG and DH Dampfkessel und Behälterbau Hohenthurm GmbH. Both companies were amalgamated in 2007 under the name of Babcock Energy Germany GmbH and are part of a global concern with its headquarters in Great Britain.

In the beginning of 2018 all company departments of Doosan Babcock Energy Germany GmbH were put on huge full improvement processes.

In particular our manufacturing department was restructured.
Now the manufacturing of our products is done at our sister company under technical highest standards as well as with other suppliers with same high standards.

With traditional elements and new impulse we and our clients can benefit on those existing synergy.
