INNIO has acquired ECI-Distribution GmbH and PowerUp GmbH. With company headquarters in Stans, Austria, the joint acquisition expands the INNIO Group’s in-house competencies and performance portfolio further in the areas of services and future-oriented components for gas engine and cogeneration plants.
ECI-Distribution is an energy engineering company that produces components for reducing emissions and increasing the output of gas engines. Its portfolio includes cylinder heads, connecting rods, steel pistons, and spark plugs. The company also maintains a worldwide network of distributors.
PowerUp GmbH offers a range of services that are focused on repair and overhaul of gas engines and complete generator sets. It also offers on-site engine inspections as well as dismantling, installation, and commissioning of gas engines power plants.
The acquired companies will continue to be led by the managing partners as an independent company.
“The integration of these two highly successful Tyrolean companies with international presence fits perfectly into our strategy, not least when it comes to our desired increase in customer satisfaction,” said Carlos Lange, president and CEO of INNIO. “INNIO is now even better positioned to offer tailored concepts to maximize the efficiency, performance, and reliability of our engines and cogeneration plants. For our customers, this results in a classic win-win situation with the best of two worlds: top-class engine and component technology coupled with first-class performance in planning, implementation, maintenance, and overhauling.
“With the rise of renewable energies and the phase-out of coal as part of Europe’s path towards climate neutrality, the demand for flexible gas engine and cogeneration plants is on the rise,” continued Lange. “We have the innovative technologies to meet these demands and are working at full speed on further developments, e.g., the future use of hydrogen. Together with ECI-Distribution and PowerUp, we are now even better positioned to tap into this potential.”
