Our Vision

Steinmüller Engineering GmbH is the unique
technology partner for globally operating thermal
processing industries and related OEM's.


Founded in 2003 in Gummersbach, Steinmüller Engineering has rapidly grown to become a major international player for engineering and consulting services. Focusing on the power industry and thermal processes the company is well positioned to manage complex and challenging new builds or modernization projects. We are a company of engineers, with broad experience and passion for technology and we love new challenges.

Steinmüller Engineering - yesterday and today

The original name L&C Steinmüller (LCS) belonged to a major international company for power plant engineering and construction. Located in Gummersbach, Germany, same place as the former LCS, we share the commitment to highly specialized plant engineering and construction services. While formerly employed at LCS some of our staff have been involved in the development, construction and operation of numerous power plants and environmental technology systems. This wealth of experience is benefitting our customer and adds value to their processes.


This wealth of experience is at the core of the Steinmüller Engineering company and our customers benefit both from our engineering consulting services and from our capacity to supply component sub-systems as well as complete systems.


Since June 2014 Steinmüller Engineering has been a wholly owned subsidiary of IHI Corporation, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. This created opportunities for the use of yet more technologies and references for a larger product portfolio and allowed for the further expansion of business activities within our field and regions, making it possible to compete for larger projects.

From the past to the present and future

Efficiency through know-how

"The integration of our two companies will generate synergies and have advantages for our clients, employees and the future development of our business.”


This statement was made by Naoya Domoto, Managing Director and President of Energy & Plant Operations for IHI Corporation following the acquisition of Steinmüller Engineering in July 2014. He spoke at the ceremony welcoming all employees of Steinmüller Engineering as new members of the IHI Group.


IHI and Steinmüller Engineering have a longstanding technical relationship based on a cooperation working on fossil-fuel power plant equipment. Over more than 40 years, when the current Steinmüller Engineering employees worked for the former L.&C. Steinmüller, experts of both companies had extensive interaction.


Our current efforts focus on the diversification of fuel, improvement in plant efficiency and implementation of environment-friendly technologies. We provide advanced solutions to the global challenges concerning energy and the environment. We are working on the joint development of advanced technologies, applying our combined knowledge, technological strengths and market experience gained worldwide.


Our technologies contribute to the effective utilization of coal by focusing on reducing energy costs and conserving valuable resources. In addition we are continuously developing and using environmentally-friendly technologies such as our Air Quality Control and CO2 Capture and Storage Systems.

Optimal performance with minimum emissions! This is a simply stated requirement that is however exceedingly complex and demands thoroughly thought - out solutions – from low emission fuel conversion in power plants with the highest possible efficiencies, to air pollution control systems.


Steinmüller Engineering is respected around the world as a consulting services partner and plant construction company. As employees of the former L.&C. Steinmüller in Gummersbach, Germany, many of our colleagues participated in the development, construction and operation of the power generation plants and air pollution control systems, which now require modernization. Our staff are fully familiar with the construction and operational processes of these plants and know exactly where and how to improve plant performance and efficiency.


As a customer your new construction and refurbishment projects will also have the support of our recent activities in a wide range of projects throughout the world. The depth of our experience in planning, designing, selection of suppliers, manufacturing, construction management and commissioning of power plants of various kinds is expanding daily as we gain new experience and generate new knowledge to be applied to the benefit of your project.
