TÜV NORD Campus ESSEN 설립 & 오픈

TÜV NORD GROUP이 지속가능의 정신으로 오래된 건물의 직물을 재활용하여 새로운 캠퍼스를 설립하였습니다.

향후 약 2,000명이 근무하게 될 넓은 부지의 TÜV NORD 캠퍼스가 독일 ESSEN에 

TÜV NORD GROUP은 2012년부터 캠퍼스에 총 5,000만유로의  자금을 투자했으며, 
이 중 3,400만유로는 세계적인 IT 하드웨어 연구소가 있는 중앙연구소와 빌딩에 

이 프로젝트는 최근 몇 년간 독일 ESSEN에서 가장 큰 회사 건설 프로젝트 중 하나입니다.

새로운 캠퍼스는 두 가지 테마를 중심으로 합니다.
혁신과 지속 가능성으로, 캠퍼스의 중심부에서는 테스트 및 인증의 미래에 대한 노력이 
이루어지고 있습니다

그룹의 지속가능성의 정신으로, 강철, 나무, 알루미늄으로 만들어진 재료들은 오래된 
건물 직물로부터 재활용되었습니다. 
오래된 건물의 철거를 통하여 콘크리트와 석조물의 약 80%가 재사용되었습니다.

TÜV NORD GROUP의 Stenkamp 회장은  “데스크 공유에서 공동 작업 공간에 이르기까지, 우리 직원들은 새로운 형태의 공동 작업에 참여하고 새로운 것을 시도할 수 있습니다. 
목표는 미래의 요구 사항에도 거의 노력하지 않고 유연하게 작업 환경을 적응시키는 것이다” 라고 말했습니다.


TÜV NORD CAMPUS ESSEN, located nearby the A40 motorway in Essen, Germany, was opened today with an official ceremony. The spacious technology site, where 1,800 people will be working in future, brings together a wide range of the Group's competences on one campus close to the city centre.

"For us, TÜV NORD CAMPUS ESSEN is a lasting commitment to the Ruhr region as a business and technology location. TÜV NORD will celebrate its 150-year presence in NRW in 2022. With the new campus, we are establishing a new chapter of our international company," said Chairman of the Board Dirk Stenkamp.

Since 2012, TÜV NORD GROUP has invested a total of 50 million euros of its own funds in the Technology Park site, 34 million of which alone in a central laboratory and office building that houses TÜViT's world-renowned IT hardware laboratory. The high-tech portfolio also includes a dynamic driving test bench, which can be used to carry out tests and assessments for wheels, brakes and complete chassis systems. The site is one of the largest company construction projects in Essen in recent years.

Essen's Lord Mayor Thomas Kufen also attended the opening in Frillendorf: "TÜV NORD has been an important part of our business location for many years," said the city leader in his welcoming speech. "I am pleased about the competence and know-how that TÜV NORD brings here, both of which are reflected by the new CAMPUS ESSEN. At the same time, it also demonstrates the company's capacity for innovation - this is another way in which TÜV NORD fits in well with the corporate landscape in Essen. I would like to express my sincere thanks for the many years of loyalty and the investment in the location and wish the employees a good and positive new working environment."  

For Stenkamp, the new campus combines two central themes: Innovation and sustainability. In the heart of Essen, work is being done on the future of testing and certification: Artificial intelligence, hydrogen, autonomous driving, energy storage systems through to quantum computing. "TÜV NORD is becoming a data-driven and digitally networked company. We will further accelerate this development here," says Stenkamp.

Entirely in the spirit of sustainability, the site is consistently built according to the model of the circular economy. Materials made of steel, wood and aluminium were recycled from old building fabric wherever possible. Around 80 percent of the concrete and masonry from the demolition of old buildings was reused. "We want to act sustainably. Even with a new building, you have to prove that you are serious about it," Stenkamp explained. The new, centrally located building will therefore be heated with climate-friendly district heating. In addition, a total of 40 new electric charging stations are currently being installed on the site, where customers and employees can charge their e-vehicles. Stenkamp affirmed that the company wants to achieve climate neutrality by 2030.

The inauguration with around 300 guests took place directly in front of the entrance to the new central building, which will accommodate 550 employees in the future. This also marks the arrival of the new office working world on campus, explained Stenkamp. "The Corona crisis has accelerated many changes. From desk sharing to co-working spaces, our staff can participate in new forms of collaboration and try out new things." The goal, he said, is to adapt the working environment flexibly and with little effort, even to future requirements.
