Witteveen+Bos and AARTEC Engineering: collaboration extended, services added
Witteveen+Bos and AARTEC Engineering have extended their successful collaboration in industrial controls for machines and installations until the end of 2024. The two parties have worked together since 2018, including on projects for water treatment plants and drinking water production. The new agreement focuses on creating and configuring electrotechnical schematic packages, allowing new sectors to be served. An additional incentive is the increasing market need for standardisation and engineering in the EPLAN software package.
AARTEC Engineering specialises in the engineering of industrial controls for machines and installations, using tools such as Configure4Me! – the company’s own engineering platform – and EPLAN. Software and electrical engineering and pneumatic components are custom designed by AARTEC, resulting in high-quality controls fully tailored to the client’s needs.
Witteveen+Bos is skilled at providing advice and guidance and solving complex challenges for which our multidisciplinary approach to process technology and automation and to civil, structural, mechanical and electrical engineering are of central importance.
In projects undertaken by the collaboration, major abstract challenges are converted into concrete solutions where even the smallest details are paid attention to. AARTEC offers extremely valuable expertise in working on these small, important details, as well as in the designing and automated creation of detailed electrotechnical schematics.
Following the expiry of the previous agreement, both parties immediately decided to extend it. The extension to the end of 2024 was made official on Friday 23 September at Witteveen+Bos’s head office by Marc Scheres, business line manager for Energy, Water and Environment at Witteveen+Bos, and Aart Franken, director of AARTEC Engineering.
The official extension of the successful collaboration between AARTEC Engineering and Witteveen+Bos: (L to R) Wytze Jorritsma and Marc Scheres (Witteveen+Bos) and Aart Franken and Jan Peter Stokreef (AARTEC Engineering).
Marc Scheres: ‘AARTEC and Witteveen+Bos are a perfect match. The new agreement highlights our joint ambition to take the current collaboration even further. There’s a growing demand among clients for standardisation of electrical engineering installations through standard schematics (typicals). This can be seen in the fact that we’re now also active outside the water sector. We recently completed two electrotechnical schematics projects in the electricity and energy sector.’
Aart Franken: ‘In Witteveen+Bos we’ve got a like-minded partner with whom we can collaborate on an equal footing. For this reason, we’re very pleased that the partnership is being continued. Our open communication with one another and complementary expertise allow clients to take full advantage of our abilities in solving complex issues. It’s pleasing to see that this is increasingly being noted by clients in a variety of industries.’
