Industrial Projects Services (IPS)

Value-added services supporting carbon neutrality and the energy transition.

Industrial Projects Services

Proven methodology and international project management for various industries

An offspring of our uniquely positioned integrated technology and solutions company, John Cockerill’s Industrial Project Services (IPS) division, has a combined base in Belgium and India. With its backbone made up of experienced engineering and project execution experts, IPS’s first mission is the construction of the Group’s H2 Gigafactories.

A mission that if fully in line with one of our Group’s main ambitions: enable the most energy-intensive industries to reduce their environmental footprint by helping them to use green energy. As such, the new plants are to manufacture electrolyzers to produce carbon-free hydrogen.

With the drastically growing need of the steel industry for green hydrogen on the back of an increasingly popular Direct Iron Reduction (DRI) process, the gigafactories built by IPS are also helping our Group’s steelmaking clients achieving their ambitions when it comes to the decarbonizing of their plants.

A wide range of tailored and value-added services to decarbonize the industry

Tightly connected to the industrial world, IPS’s overall objective is to focus on industrial projects that are supporting carbon neutrality, ecological transition, and circular economy. Projects that often call for multidisciplinary skills to address most adequately some of the important topics of our time such as energy efficiency, power optimization, carbon capture or other environmental related topics and for which IPS offers a wide range of tailored and value-added services, either developed for or co-developed with industrial partners.
