We are NESNovel Energy Solutions

NES has set itself the goal of making a significant contribution to reducing CO2 emissions in process engineering. Sustainability and energy efficiency are important factors. It is also important to us to put safety and people first. In addition to the economic consideration of a project, we also attach importance to a qualitative assessment of the environmental influences.


Further and new developments in software technology have significantly changed planning in process engineering in the 21st century. Performance simulation programs enable increasingly precise advance calculations of process engineering systems. Using this new technology and methods, systems can be planned efficiently regarding investment and operating costs. Environmental aspects can also be estimated in advance. NES has decided to embrace and continuously improve the possibilities of the new calculation technology.


With our team we manage to implement these demands.
