schlaich bergermann partner has been an independent engineering office working in the renewable energy sector for over 35 years. Starting out as far back as the first oil crisis in 1973, we have worked on concepts and ideas in solar power generation and gained experience in the design, construction and operation of solar thermal power plants with projects in both Germany and abroad. Some of our other building projects realized in those days, such as the 2nd Hooghly River Bridge in Calcutta/India, showed us that there can be no prosperity and human existence without sufficient energy supply.
