Milestones of the company´s history

2015 / 2017
New projects for FILTRONtec
: Several requests from Asia and Australia are available. Our team designs air filters for road tunnels in Korea, the People's Republic of China and Australia.

FILTRONtecactive in Hong Kong:
With the founding of our Hong Kong subsidiary FILTRONtec Limited in Hong Kong, strengthened our position in the Asian market. From the construction company Leighton Joint Venture Ltd. in Hong Kong, we were commissioned to install eight air filter systems in the Tunnel Central - Wan Chai Bypass (Hong Kong). The owner is Highways Department Hong Kong. The tunnel is scheduled to be commissioned in 2019.

FILTRONtec completes filter plant in Sydney:
On April 21, 2010, the air filter unit for the M5-East tunnel became operational.

FILTRONtec goes Down Under:
After the successful performance in a worldwide qualification competition in 2004, we were commissioned by the Road and Traffic Authority (RTA) (now Roads & Maritime Services (RMS)) to install an air filter system near the Western portal of the existing M5-East tunnel in Sydney (Australia). In this respect, we set up our subsidiary FILTRONtec Pty Ltd, based in Sydney.

2007 / 2008
Madrid relies on FILTRONtec:
In Madrid, our three installed exhaust air filter systems were put into operation at the Calle M30 Rio tunnel. Thanks to the new tunnel, part of the former ring road streets have been repositioned underground and a new space for a green oasis has been created in the heart of the Spanish capital.

FILTRONtec grows with a branch office, a subsidiary and a major contract:
We set up a branch engineering office in Wolfen-Bitterfeld in Saxony. In addition, our subsidiary FILTRONtec ESPAÑA, S.L. was founded to establish our presence in Southern Europe. We were therefore very well positioned to receive the order of the City of Madrid for the planning and installation of three exhaust air filter systems in the tunnel Madrid Calle30 Rio.

We design an exhaust air filter system for a city tunnel in Leiden (Netherlands).

FILTRONtec successful in a worldwide competition:
The Australian Road and Traffic Authority (RTA), selected us together with two other companies, for the planning and installation of an air filter system for the M5-East tunnel in Sydney out of a total of 13 applicants.

Mont Blanc tunnel:
Together with the French engineering company SCETAUROUTE (Annecy), we designed an air filter system for the 11.4 kilometer Mont Blanc tunnel.

FILTRONtec know-how in the Tiergarten Tunnel:
As an alternative, we projected a modern exhaust air filter system for the Tiergarten Tunnel instead of an exhaust air chimney solution on the forecourt of Berlin’s main station.

FILTRONtec in the service for clean air:
FILTRONtec GmbH is founded in Starnberg near Munich by two partners of the Ingenieurbüros DR. DICKELS & PARTNER

Hamburg builds on DR. DICKELS & PARTNER:
The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg commissioned DR. DICKELS & PARTNER to develop and test a pilot filter system for cleaning the tunnel exhaust air at the Elbtunnel. The project was funded by the Federal Ministry of Education, Research and Technology (BMFT).

DR. DICKELS & PARTNER - Specialist for innovative power generation plants:
Founded in Starnberg near Munich Dickels and Dr. Vinz the engineering company DR. DICKELS & PARTNER. The aim of the company is the planning of innovative energy generation plants. As a result, the planning spectrum is extended to the application of methods for air pollution control.
