POWX Bulk Powder Expo Russia

Effective Explosion Protection in the Bulk Solids Area

Monday, 14 July 2014


NUREMBERG (DE) - Every day in Germany there are at least one to two  dust explosions and these are only the registered  ones. 

Although most of them have no serious  consequences, safe explosion protection starts with  investments in preventative protection in order to  prevent the occurrence of an explosion. Russia has  a great backlog demand in this area. "German  companies with their technology are welcomed  guests in Russia and are greatly demanded", states  Bernd D. Fichtner, managing director of the  international bulk goods trade fair POWX2014.    

Bulk goods industry in Russia with great potential  The country richest in raw materials is Russia:  globally it owns approximately  32% of the largest natural gas reserves and  approximately half of all well-known coal deposits.  Together with Saudi Arabia, Russia is the leading  crude oil exporter and a majority of the public  revenue comes from raw materials export. Russia is  on it ways to modernise its economy. The basic  industry, i.e. all extractive branches of industry, in Russia is making  radical changes and the bulk goods industry and their technologies are  playing a very unique role. "Most plants in Russia do not correspond to  the high technical requirements and safety requirements. The same  applies to explosion protection. German companies can experience huge  profits with their know-how and technology", added Fichtner.    

High potential and market access through trade fairs  Representation at trade fairs is still considered to be a help for the  Russian market. Companies can achieve high visibility when it comes to  decision-makers and trade fair visitors. Local planning and conditions in  Russia can sometimes prove to be difficult or at least arduous in terms of  western European habits. In this case, it takes experienced partners who  pride themselves with many years of experience in setting up business  contacts.
