After coal: HPC builds in Schöningen

The Schöningen open pit mine is a special place: As if under a microscope, the past and the future are revealed here, from the Paleolithic era to the inner-German border to HPC’s solutions for post-mining landscapes.

Appraisement

Previously used sections of land conceal the risk of contamination and liabilities. We take this into account with land transactions and investment projects. Important factors are Environmental Due Diligence (EDD) and Environmental Site Assessments (ESA) Phase I/II. We will estimate your investment risks and investment constraints.

Building Substance Contaminant Register

Hazardous building substances according to the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances are probably found in every building constructed in the twentieth century. Unknown hazardous substances can have a lasting effect and become a health hazard for the user due to their emission potential. Air in a room can be contaminated with formaldehyde. Unqualified handling of hazardous substances during demolition or renovation can lead to the release of asbestos fibres. Unknown hazardous building materials can lead to accidents and recourse claims. We want to protect you against such high consequential costs.

Contaminated Building Substance Investigation

Hazardous building waste resulting from demolition or disasters is a hazard and an unacceptable risk for users and third parties. They drive up costs and delay deadlines. There is a need for remediation here. We will perform an interdisciplinary investigation of the design requirements preceding demolition. Structural connections with neighbouring buildings, shared walls, the need to secure neighbouring buildings by underpinning. We will support you in recognising and eliminating dangers from the outset.

Contaminated Building Substance Remediation

Hazardous building substances according to the definition of the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances are probably found in every building constructed in the twentieth century. This does not necessarily require dismantling. For existing substances such as non-friable asbestos products and carcinogenic mineral fibres, so-called old artificial mineral fibres (AMF), provisions can be made to protect the existing conditions. The need for a selective dismantling of hazardous building materials arises during demolition and renovations, after accidents caused by improper asbestos handling or in the case of an unacceptable risk to users or third parties. We will support you in assessing the dismantling requirements.

Contaminated Sites and Soil Protection

Technical and industrial progress during the last decade have often come at a high cost: the results of improper handling of chemicals and waste have resulted in contaminated sites. The lack of planning for safety equipment and work flows still poses a threat to our soil. With our comprehensive knowledge, we can manage these risks.

Corporate Environmental Protection

Our goal is sustainable protection of the atmosphere, water, soils and organisms. Climate protection and careful handling of resources make for a liveable environment. Legal requirements are the minimum for operational environmental protection. Forward-looking environmental concepts offer you potential savings and competitive advantages. We will plan and optimise individual environmental protection concepts for your business and support you during implementation.

Demolition

Old industrial installations, dormant commercial and industrial sites, residential high rises from the 1960s and office buildings from the early 1970’s, which are no longer adequate for meeting today´s demands. First and foremost, our task is to compile lists of hazardous building substances and contaminants used in the construction. Consequentially we will design a progressive and appropriate process in dealing with hazardous building materials. At the same time, we will plan the dismantling and demolition while respecting industrial safety and emission control requirements: from the dismantling and demolition concept to licensing and execution planning right through to obtaining the necessary permits. For the tender of the designed measures we will prepare an agenda of services and support to the client throughout the allocation process with a team of specialists. We will manage waste disposal and tend to the organisational challenges of management and supervision of the dismantling and demolition work. These services are provided as a fixed price from a general contractor.

Demolition Planning

A detailed plan is necessary before implementing the actions to be taken. An approval plan is essential for the demolition application. The contractors performing the works need the execution plan. The list of services is the key to the calculation of the offer and for comparing efficiency. We will undertake the dismantling and demolition planning for you.

Deposit Evaluation

We deal with all types of raw materials; liquids, solids and gases – all over the world. We prospect for deposits, investigate raw materials as well as plan and compile surveys. Evaluating a deposit through a Pre-Feasibility Study and Bankable Feasibility Study pursuant to international standards, which enables the prospecting investor to undergo a financial commitment on a sound basis. Determining the presence of exploitable reserves is the most important criterion. Other decision criteria are technical recoverability, ecological and social impacts on the environment, and licensing aspects.

Deposit Investigation

Deposits are an essential source for the survival of entire industries. They counteract the shortage of raw materials. Raw materials are very diverse – and so are their deposits. The prospecting of a deposit is the basis for successful raw material extraction. We will offer geological expertise combined with years of experience and technical prospecting services. This will guarantee you reliable planning, monitoring and evaluation during the prospecting period.

Due Diligence

We test land, existing building stock, technical installations, operational risks and adherence to environmental requirements with due diligence or an environment due diligence. The extensive and complex testing requires professional competence, strategic thinking and interdisciplinary work. We will test and evaluate all environmentally relevant information sources. In this way, we will create transparency for your decision-making.

Energy Audits

We all need energy every day. Consciously and unconsciously. Reduce your energy consumption and increase end-user efficiency. We will develop solutions tailored to your needs.

Environmental Compatibility

The environmental impact assessment (EIA) is the central eco-political instrument for environmental protection. Environmentally relevant projects are assessed for environmental impacts. As part of the regulatory approval process, the environmental impact assessment aids decision making on the permissibility of projects. It is the first hurdle for project implementation. With our detailed presentation of potential project-related environmental effects, the concept of measures and a balanced discussion of the options, we prevent failure of the project due to the EIA.

Environmental Consulting

The environment and our living conditions determine our quality of life. Development entails changes. Sustainable environmental development is the result of many large and small projects. Environment – and occupational health legislation is extensive and varies worldwide. Environmental consulting covers many areas of responsibility: Risk identification, building assessment, early detection of harmful effects, operational environmental protection, location evaluations, information acquisition and utilisation. We will stay on top of things, so that you can make the right decision.

Environmental Evaluation and Monitoring

Today, decisions are complex. Often situations are difficult to see through. Strengths and weaknesses must be considered. Every property transaction requires that environmental risks be identified and quantified. Problems can only be averted if they are known about in advance. We will be your guarantor for due diligence procedures.

Environmental Information Systems

Environmental information systems are GIS and database systems for the recording and analysis of environmental data. With environmental monitoring, the continuous collection of large amounts of data is particularly important. Much of this data will be related to geographical information. Environmental information systems consistently collect data and make new analyses possible. Increase your efficiency with our environmental systems. We’ll help you gain new insights.

Environmental Land Appraisal

A technical environmental building evaluation is a complex and variable service package. It is worth it for every phase of a building’s lifecycle: development, operation, renting, ongoing maintenance, buying or selling, conversion or demolition. It is always worth reliably identifying, evaluating and managing environmental risks. We will offer you tailor-made solutions for your property type and it´s lifecycle phase.

Environmental Planning

Environmental planning is oriented towards desirable conditions for the environment and human beings. Environmental planning ensures the co-ordination of individual instruments and integrates environmental policy in all areas, such as spatial planning, individual plans and environmental impact assessments. We take environmental and social aspects into consideration. That way, we achieve sustainable development.

Environmental Reporting

In the process of construction site management planning, environmental reports describe and evaluate the results of environmental assessments carried out during the plan development. Initially, the environmental protection goals related to the planning are listed. On this basis, we determine the likely environmental effects of land use and development planning. The planning of an alternative test and the development of measures to prevent, reduce or compensate for adverse effects ensues. The result of the environmental report is taken into account when weighing competing interests. Environmental reports of companies and institutions describe objectives, measures and results. In this, environmental protection is a part of information policy and marketing. In our environmental reports, we explain the corporate environmental policy, describe the established environmental guidelines and designate the target performance level and also the implementation timeframe.

ESG at HPC AG

The ESG approach, which encompasses environmental, social and governance aspects, is too important to be relegated to a buzzword. So we operationalize this approach for our customers: The term ESG is booming. And not just because of the recent crises. The increase in importance is having an impact on markets, fashions, consumption and investment decisions. ESG is often defined very broadly and used as a synonym for sustainability.

ESG Construction and Integration in Kosovo and the Balkan Region

In addressing the global challenges that also affect the Balkans and Kosovo, the ESG/Sustainability issue must be prioritized. HPC is your partner in ESG and sustainability. We support you in setting your sustainability goals, implementing and building an ESG management system in order to minimize your sustainability risks and take advantage of potential opportunities.

Federal Immission Control Act of Germany: The HPC as translator

In the early 1970s, the German Federal Government presented its first environmental programme. The Federal Immission Control Act is intended to protect against harmful effects on the environment. And so, since then, many companies have come into contact with the law again and again. The example of the Hagedorn Group of Companies illustrates how HPC AG supports its customers in the authorisation process.

Fermentation Power Plants

Biogas, in addition to the renewable energy sources solar and wind, is an important energy source. We use many raw materials: digester gas from sewage treatment plants, organic waste and renewable raw materials. Regionally available resources and energetically recyclable waste materials can be produced in an environmentally friendly way. What is special about biogas? It is natural energy obtained from organic material and delivers CO2-neutral heating, cooling, electricity and gas.

Fire Protection Strategy

Preventive fire safety has been an important aspect of occupational safety for many years in building planning and inspection. The number of fires resulting in levels of material damage, injuries and death must be reduced. We will arrange safety targets for buildings and property related requirements with you. An integral fire safety concept is generally obligatory for special structures without specific building regulations or significant deviations introduced by the building authorities. We generate all fire safety measures up to final design on your behalf.

Foundation Consultation

Each building leaves traces in the ground. Detailed knowledge of local conditions guarantees the economic viability of a structure and protects the surrounding areas. Our foundation consultation offers alternatives for an economic structural foundation and gives recommendations for the construction processes. We will get you on a safe and economical base.

General Contractor

We are experts in contaminants and all classic and innovative investigation processes, redevelopment and securing. We have experience from thousands of projects and are confident in our expert opinions and cost estimates. As a general contractor, we are a competent third party. For new usage, we guarantee that we will comply with public laws concerning redevelopment requirements at the fixed price including all enduring risks from contaminated sites.

General Contractor

You will receive planning as well as environmentally sound and selective dismantling and demolition measures while complying to all workplace safety measures with the optimal disposal methods and disposal services from one provider. As a general contractor, interface problems are foreign to us, as they cause delays. We will take on the responsibility for the whole dismantling project, the meeting of deadlines and providing cost security.

Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

Geographic information systems (GIS) make spatial objects visible and link them to a database. Manage, analyse and visualise an extensive amount of diverse data graphically and quickly with GIS. GIS offers individual solutions for supply and disposal contractors and for city, space and landscape designers, as well as for “environment departments” in industrial companies. You define the requirements. We offer you the modular custom-built geographic information system that meets them.

Geotechnical Engineering

Land, soil, earth and rock are our living space, and at the same time, the foundation of our construction projects. They are only safe as building sites when they are explored and evaluated. We offer you complete solutions from a single source, including complex challenges. Our experience and our perseverance ensure the success of your construction project.

Geothermal Energy

The heat content and heat storage capacity of the subsoil can be used with technical equipment for the production of energy. The equipment ranges from near-surface structure segments to boreholes reaching several thousand metres in depth. The technology harbours risks. Improper installation of geothermal probes, for example, can cause damage. Our competence and experience ensures risk assessment, risk reduction, quality assurance of the technical implementation and the remediation of damaged equipment. We help you to choose correctly.

Greenfield and Urban Development Planning

Through development previously unused areas can be used for residential, commercial and industrial purposes. These can be previous fallow lands or built-up areas undergoing a change of use. We help you to develop these areas with the required infrastructure.

Groundwater Extraction

Non-potable water, drinking water, mineral water and curative water – water extraction differs according to your requirements. Drinking water, mineral water and curative water must conform to much higher quality standards than non-potable water. With site surveys, planning and monitoring of the construction of wells and pipelines we provide a flawless delivery of quality to the consumer. With innovative geo-hydraulics, groundwater modelling and resource management methods, we create the conditions for legal protection and long-term usability of groundwater resources.

Groundwater Management

Clean groundwater and spring water is the most precious foundation of life. Our goal is to appreciate and protect it. We therefore explore aquifers, examine water quality and rejuvenate in case of damage. We have been dealing with groundwater projects for many years. We plan construction projects in groundwater particularly carefully – to protect the groundwater and prevent damage to subsurface structures.

Groundwater Modelling

Groundwater models mathematically describe groundwater flow and transport processes. They build a simple or complex picture of the aquifer and make it possible to address many questions and tasks using computer projections. We create precise problem analysis and solutions for your site. And at a highly professional level.

HPC against paper sludge

Farmland and aquifers in Baden-Württemberg are contaminated with paper sludge. There are both causes of and solutions for this large-scale contamination.

HPC and the IQ Towers of Hamburg’s HafenCity

Anyone visiting the heart of the city of Hamburg, HafenCity (Harbour City), usually looks at the impressive new and old buildings – or at the wide water. But it is also worth taking a look at the ground. Only those who master the skill can build in a harbour – with sand, storm surges and an inrush of water.

Hydraulic Engineering

Water is the basis of our life. Rivers and inland water bodies are the natural habitat for flora and fauna. At the same time, they are traffic and transport routes and popular areas for leisure and recreation. Rivers and inland water bodies also contain dangers. Floods can have devastating effects. We preserve natural resources and shape them so they can be used safely.

Hydrogeology and Groundwater Protection

We can only protect what we know: geo-hydraulic measurements and investigations into groundwater conditions are important bases of hydro-geological exploration. With our test vehicles, we can perform pumping tests and all common drill-hole testing to a depth of 400 metres. We digitally collect all measurement parameters. We can evaluate the data on the spot. We gather information about aquifer structures to the best technical standards: diagnostic plots and transient-response curve procedures provide reliable aquifer guidelines, so that we can mathematically calculate the groundwater flow and make forecasts for the development of groundwater quality. We examine the groundwater quality with ingress pumping tests, multilevel sampling and other methods. In this way, cases of groundwater damage can be assessed and corrected.

Information Systems

With big data, the value of relevant information increases considerably. Big data makes it possible to create successful concepts and gain market shares. Provided you get a handle on the flood of information – uncertainty and lack of experience with information systems can waste your potential and damage your competitive edge. We support you to use information systems competently, so that you can quickly collect and evaluate data.

Infrastructure Planning

Regional economic objectives of investment-related infrastructure policies can only be achieved by thorough infrastructure planning. Infrastructure planning influences the competitiveness of regions, the promotion of economic growth and the improvement of region-specific environmental situations. We know the individual challenges of areas and regions. That qualifies us to be competent in current and future infrastructure planning.

Initial State Report

The IED (European Design Institute)-Directive and the initial state report means new obligations for plant operators and industry. Die IED-Directive came into effect in November 2010. The aims of the directive were to standardize environmental specifications within the EU and to prevent unequal competition. Regulations (4 and 9 BlmSchV (Bundes-Immissionsschutzverordnungen) [Federal Emission Protection Regulations]) were adopted when the IED Directive came into effect. We will support you with all measures in the implementation of the IED-Directive.

Investigation

During the last 100 years social prosperity has been growing at the expense of the environment, especially soil and groundwater. Contaminants are stored in former production sites, in landfills and in artificially filled sites. These contaminants pollute groundwater, surface water, crops and endanger human health. In the course of construction measures, these contaminants lead to higher costs and need to be disposed of. Authorities, owners and buyers require reliable surveys. This is the only way to safely assess potential threats, risks attached to new use and investment restrictions.

Land Recycling

Life is constantly evolving. New buildings and installations are emerging on freely available land. Elsewhere occupied land is being redeveloped and returned to the economic cycle. Land recycling enhances urban land, revitalises soil, and is part of urban and rehabilitation planning. We offer services to promote land recycling and the integration of sustainable disused and usable land for the whole area from one sole provider.

Land Surveying

Measure first, then act. Precise knowledge of location-related data is essential for nearly every construction project and many other projects besides. We collect this data for you with the most advantageous procedure in each case, and if you so require, maintain them in a geographic information system (GIS). Our repertoire includes GPS measurements, surveying with tachometers and accurate levels, as well as laser scanner measurements. We can offer you the use of state -of –the- art technology for an efficient, time- and- cost saving implementation in your project.

Landfill Technology

Even with successful methods of waste recycling, landfills will still be required in the future. Waste and residual waste fractions are still classified on an economic and ecological basis from I to III. Industrial waste can be deposited on lower landfill classes depending on the pollutant content. We can help you to extend existing landfill sites and set up new ones.

Landscape Design

Landscape planning is an ecological and creative subject between the conflicting priorities of spatial planning, ecology, conservation and various other areas. It serves proactively as a key planning instrument of nature protection and landscape conservation. Areal- and profile-oriented landscape planning supports and steers economic development and helps to shape it in an ecologically sustainable manner. With our landscape planning, we have set ourselves the goal of maintaining the productivity of eco-systems as the basis of life for people.

Lost rivers and the aftermath of war: HPC in Kosovo

There are no rivers in the capital of Kosovo. The Priština, its namesake, and the Vellusha disappeared in the 1950s – filled up with rubbish and soil. Rivers that did not disappear from the face of the earth are often contaminated in the Balkans – as are many soils. The reason: carelessness or negligent and ignorant handling of harmful substances as well as massive damage caused by war.

Mine Decommissioning

Part of the decommissioning process of a mine is to consider the landscape design and usage after the extraction of a deposit. The design of the landscape must ensure long-term safety, a low maintenance and sustainable use after completion of the mining process. Planning must take geotechnical, hydrogeological and landscaping factors into consideration. Based on this we can develop a complex and unique redevelopment plan for you.

Natural Resources and Mining

Since ancient times, raw materials have been the source of prosperity and progress. Often in the past, the need for new deposits was the driving force for technical advancement. These days, sufficient raw materials are the basis for industrial production. A guaranteed supply of raw materials for industry is of high economic importance. We prospect and evaluate worldwide deposits for liquid, solid and gaseous materials. The extraction of raw materials through mining poses a great responsibility for people, nature and the environment on us. After decommissioning the mine, we design the plan for the post-mine landscape. We are also happy to develop individual flood scenario concepts for you, as well as post-flood concepts.

Occupational Health and Safety

Health and safety for your employees are your top priority. High rates of absenteeism and disturbances in the workplace are costly and often have disastrous consequences for small and middle sized companies. It is necessary to implement accident prevention regulations and avoid accidents at work and health hazards. We develop company specific safety measures and monitor their implementation.

Occupational safety for new industries and hybrid working

Occupational health and safety is often only an issue when it is too late and damage has been done – be it through an accident or through everyday work. HPC supports its clients in preventing this from happening. Selvi Kocak-Pasolar specialises in tech companies. The new hybrid working world poses completely new challenges.

Permitting Management

Water care and water development are implemented through the Water Framework Directive. Proposals that safeguard the water supply and ecosystem, the landscape and the common good are approved. All measures are subject to regulatory approval. We utilize our room to manoeuvre to your advantage to reduce the cost of water maintenance. Channelling water runoff and improving ecological conditions are a must for us.

Remediation

If the risk assessment reveals a need for redevelopment, we will find the best comparative redevelopment solution (retention or de-contamination). Initially we will develop specific and proportionate redevelopment targets, before we generate options for redevelopment solutions and after evaluating the cost effectiveness criteria. We will prepare the design plans and permit applications. We will assist you in making the right decisions. We will oversee and manage the redevelopment. We will take responsibility.

Risk Assessment

Contaminated sites can be old waste deposits on former landfills and former industrial sites utilizing chemical substances in their processes. Contaminated sites can pollute groundwater, surface water, crops and endanger our health. We systematically investigate suspicious sites and assess them in accordance with the BBodSchG and BBodSchV. We always assess individual cases and determine a specific course of action appropriate to each case. We focus on the solution, not the problem.

Road and Civil Engineering

The interplay of people, goods and information is a prerequisite for technical progress. Continuous work for a mobility structure meeting these requirements contributes to this progress. We consider all stakeholders and act sustainably, cost-consciously and efficiently.

Road Construction

Roads and paths are one of the foundations of our life. We provide relevant and economical road construction which meets medium- and long-term requirements.

Site Assessment

Numerous factors and individual assessment criteria affect the choice of location. We consider the location situation in conjunction with the customer’s specific requirements. In accordance with the company’s objectives we will take on individual location requirements and adapt them to the conditions of the alternative sites. We will analyse all the relevant factors, evaluate the basics and check alternatives.

Site Dewatering Measures

Improper procedures in dealing with groundwater causes 80 % of all building damage. Poor judgement leads to damage and massively increased cost. Our experienced hydrogeologists and civil engineers help you maintain a dry building site. Our tools range from simple formulas to complex groundwater models. We examine the effects of large-scale drawdown. In so doing, we set benchmarks: through co-operation on the issue of construction water containment for highly acknowledged scientific publications (such as the “Grundbautaschenbuch”) and the taskforce on DIN 18305 “Water Containment Works”.

Site Health and Safety Coordination

There is a high risk of occupational accidents for workers on construction sites and the immediate area. This is the building owner’s responsibility. We will offer substantiated safety planning, stringent implementation of all precautionary measures and constant communication with everyone concerned. Our health and safety coordinator will take charge of these duties.

Site Management

The implementation of the planning procedures requires expertise in site management and supervision. We will continually check compliance with the requirements of the planning process, solve unforeseen problems and take care of your interests. At the conclusion of operations, you will receive a detailed report as a documentation of upholding all the applicable legal requirements.

Site Supervision

Contaminated building debris needs to be monitored and managed on-site. This is essential for large quantities. We will oversee the occupational safety aspects. We ensure compliance with waste requirements. We eliminate unnecessary costs with the expertise and experience from thousands of construction sites.

Soil Protection Strategy

After evaluating the soil conditions, we will define the targets for soil protection solutions at national and regional level. We will then clarify regulations with the municipal and environmental planning authorities. The catalogue of measures taken will be based on regionally relevant information and the relevant planning documentation.

Soils Reports

The characteristics of soil and groundwater and their suitability for a building site are important criteria when buying real estate. Our experts investigate the conditions. We will give you recommendations for the right foundations. A good investment to prevent impairments and delays in construction.

Structural Design in Special Civil Engineering

Building ground is capital. Sustainable and economic use pays off. Especially in inner cities, a new building must fit in with existing structures. Shoring is often needed in a building pit. Surrounding buildings, roads, pipes and sewers need to be taken into account. We offer you one-stop planning and security credentials. Through to the execution stage.

The vision for Kesslergrube: Germany’s ambitious remediation of a polluted area

Ambitious remediation of a polluted area instead of “out of sight, out of mind”. HPC AG is thoroughly remediating a pit filled with chemical and pharmaceutical waste, among other things, using state-of-the-art equipment for the Swiss-based Roche Holding AG. Excavating an average of 600 tonnes per day, and filling a total of 15,000 containers in a very confined space at a depth of 13 metres right next to a river – HPC AG, the general planner and construction manager, has shown that this is possible.

This is why we are a climate-neutral company

The greenhouse gases caused by HPC AG are recorded and compensated. This makes us one of the first companies in our industry to voluntarily compensate for emissions.

Toxicological Risk Assessment

Contaminated sites, contaminated locations and buildings, emissions and immissions of pollutants compromise product safety and occupational safety and lower the value of the product and building. Chemical substances must be recorded and quantified. Dangers are not immediately recognised. This is particularly true for combined exposures to pollutant mixtures. Our toxicological risk assessment tests the statutory risk thresholds, for example, cancer risks from IKR: 10E-5. For unacceptable risks and hazards, we will define, with you, location specific action quality and sanitary procedures. We will support you in your risk assessment.

Urban and Industrial Wastewater Treatment

Environmental influences increasingly jeopardize vital drinking water supplies, rivers and lakes. Industrial effluents are often polluted and require treatment. Our wastewater treatment focuses on the multiple use of wastewater and water pollution control. With innovative treatment processes, we achieve a resource-saving reuse for municipal and industrial purposes.

Waste Declaration Investigations

Recycling and waste disposal often requires sampling and analytical studies. A simple separation of building substances lowers expenses. We investigate waste materials and the soil conditions before commencing construction. We sample materials to be disposed of and provide the appropriate material categorization declarations. We know the regional requirements for disposal regulations.

Waste Disposal Strategy

Both on-site storage capacities and available time are often scarce. We determine the different qualities of debris and soil as well as the different waste categories in advance. We arrange approval of intermediate storage areas, disposal and recycling paths and develop disposal concepts based on the investigation results and evaluation. A complete disposal concept ensures proper site planning and reduces costs.

Waste Management

Many obstacles make the disposal of building materials and waste difficult. We will advise you on environmental research, recycling and disposal concepts pursuant to technical and economic criteria. We will co-ordinate the interfaces between all involved parties for you.

Wastewater Management

Cleaning and disposal of industrial wastewater is particularly complicated and costly. Systematic analysis and evaluation of the water and wastewater-related parameters on site can greatly reduce costs. Aspects of wastewater management are the type of water supply, the average consumption of water and the contents of the wastewater. We reduce the production costs. For us, environmental protection means reducing water consumption and reusing waste products. Waste products are sand, screenings and valuable materials, such as sewage sludge, which contribute to energy extraction.

Water Resource Management

Water is our most important resource. With us, you can identify and eliminate risks in your water supply. We customize methods and processes to suit your needs. Through efficient resource management you maximise your savings potential. The sustainable management of water resources is certifiable. We ensure the optimal use of resources.

Water Resources Development Planning

Inland water bodies have many functions in our cultural landscapes. They are used as waterways, hold back heavy precipitation and flood water, prevent retention or are used for leisure and recreation. In addition, they are habitats for our diverse flora and fauna. Maintenance carried out on and in the water can ensure that the water bodies can fulfil their functions. We undertake these tasks on your behalf.

Water Supply

Clean drinking water ensures the sustainable development of whole regions. Sources of water include river water, groundwater and sea water. The quality of the raw water determines the technical solution for its processing. We ensure that the processed water will be distributed and temporarily stored in transport networks. So the water in the distribution system reaches the consumer.

Water treatment 2030: A look into the future

Our wastewater is supposed to be clean. But hardly anyone is interested in what exactly happens; the main thing is that the result is right. And that’s what HPC AG cares about – envisioning a future that is not so far away.

Work Safety Coordination

A healthy working environment motivates employees, creates satisfaction, and increases productivity. In production areas, high risk areas, and in the office, occupational health and safety is essential and at the same time a recipe for economic success. Fewer accidents and shorter outage times means fewer extra costs leading to potential savings on insurance expense. We will support you in coordinating occupational safety measures for your company.

2. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of this website and its pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Hence, we handle your personal data as confidential information and in compliance with the statutory data protection regulations and this Data Protection Declaration.

Whenever you use this website, a variety of personal information will be collected. Personal data comprises data that can be used to personally identify you. This Data Protection Declaration explains which data we collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the information is collected.

We herewith advise you that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e. through e-mail communications) may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third party access.

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the „controller“ in the GDPR)

The data processing controller on this website is:

Arno Bartels
Thomas Osberghaus
Nördlinger Straße 16
86655 Harburg (Schwaben)

+49 9080 999-0
info@hpc.ag

The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Designation of a data protection officer as mandated by law

We have appointed a data protection officer for our company.

Sven Lenz
Datenschutzkanzlei Lenz GmbH & Co. KG
Bahnhofstraße 50
87435 Kempten

+49 831 930653-00
kontakt@deutsche-datenschutzkanzlei.de

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal notification via e-mail. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

In the event that data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your personal data based on grounds arising from your unique situation. This also applies to any profiling based on these provisions. To determine the legal basis, on which any processing of data is based, please consult this Data Protection Declaration. If you log an objection, we will no longer process your affected personal data, unless we are in a position to present compelling protection worthy grounds for the processing of your data, that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the purpose of the processing is the claiming, exercising or defence of legal entitlements (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR).

If your personal data is being processed in order to engage in direct advertising, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your affected personal data for the purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is affiliated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for direct advertising purposes (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption programme. You can recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from „http://“ to „https://“ and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information about, blockage, rectification and eradication of data

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified, blocked or eradicated. If you have questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time at the address provided in section „Information Required by Law.“

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time at the address provided in section „Information Required by Law.“ The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases:

  • In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its eradication.
  • If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.

Rejection of unsolicited e-mails

We herewith object to the use of contact information published in conjunction with the mandatory information to be provided in section „Information Required by Law“ to send us promotional and information material that we have not expressly requested. The operators of this website and its pages reserve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of promotional information, for instance via SPAM messages.

3. Recording of data on our website

Cookies

In some instances, our website and its pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. The purpose of cookies is to make our website more user friendly, effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called „session cookies.“ They are automatically deleted after your leave our site. Other cookies will remain archived on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our website.

You can adjust the settings of your browser to make sure that you are notified every time cookies are placed and to enable you to accept cookies only in specific cases or to exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific situations or in general and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functions of this website may be limited.

Cookies that are required for the performance of the electronic communications transaction or to provide certain functions you want to use (e.g. the shopping cart function), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies to ensure the technically error free and optimised provision of the operator’s services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your browsing patterns) should be stored, they are addressed separately in this Data Protection Declaration.

Server log files

The provider of this website and its pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser communicates to us automatically. The information comprises:

  • The type and version of browser used
  • The used operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • The hostname of the accessing computer
  • The time of the server inquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

This data is recorded on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the technically error free depiction and the optimization of the operator’s website. In order to achieve this, server log files must be recorded.

Contact form

If you submit inquiries to us via our contact form, the information provided in the contact form as well as any contact information provided therein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event that we have further questions. We will not share this information without your consent.

Hence, the processing of the data entered into the contact form occurs exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You have the right to revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal notification via e-mail. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

The information you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to eradicate the data, revoke your consent to the archiving of data or if the purpose for which the information is being archived no longer exists (e.g. after we have concluded our response to your inquiry). This shall be without prejudice to any mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods.

Request by e-mail, telephone or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass these data on without your consent.

The processing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Article 6 (1) a GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us.

The data sent by you to us via contact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses (e.g. after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.

4. Analysis tools and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of this service is Google Ireland Limited („Google“), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Archiving period

Data on the user or incident level stored by Google linked to cookies, user IDs or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) will be anonymized or deleted after 14 month. For details please click the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=de

5. Plug-ins and Tools

Google Web Fonts

To ensure that fonts used on this website are uniform, this website uses so-called Web Fonts provided by Google. When you access a page on our website, your browser will load the required web fonts into your browser cache to correctly display text and fonts.

To do this, the browser you use will have to establish a connection with Google’s servers. As a result, Google will learn that your IP address was used to access our website. The use of Google Web Fonts is based on our interest in presenting our online content in a uniform and appealing way. According to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legitimate interest.

If your browser should not support Web Fonts, a standard font installed on your computer will be used.

To enable the use of the Google Maps features, your IP address must be stored. As a rule, this information is transferred to one of Google’s servers in the United States, where it is archived. The operator of this website has no control over the data transfer.

We use Google Maps to present our online content in an appealing manner and to make the locations disclosed on our website easy to find. This constitutes a legitimate interest as defined in Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR.

For more information on the handling of user data, please review Google’s Data Privacy Declaration under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

6. Custom Services

Job Applications

We offer website visitors the opportunity to submit job applications to us (e.g. via e-mail, via postal services on by submitting the online job application form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, purpose and use of the personal data collected from you in conjunction with the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will occur in compliance with the applicable data privacy rights and all other statutory provisions and that your data will always be treated as strictly confidential.

Scope and purpose of the collection of data

If you submit a job application to us, we will process any affiliated personal data (e.g. contact and communications data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.), if they are required to make a decision concerning the establishment or an employment relationship. The legal grounds for the aforementioned are § 26 New GDPR according to German Law (Negotiation of an Employment Relationship), Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR (General Contract Negotiations) and – provided you have given us your consent – Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revoke any consent given at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be shared with individuals who are involved in the processing of your job application.

If your job application should result in your recruitment, the data you have submitted will be archived on the grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship in our data processing system.

Data Archiving Period

If we should not be able to offer you a position, if you refuse a job offer, retract your application, revoke your consent to the processing of your data or ask us to delete your data, we will store your transferred data, incl. any physically submitted application documents for a maximum of 6 months after the conclusion of the application process (retention period) to enable us to track the details of the application process in the event of disparities (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR).

YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO OBJECT TO THIS STORAGE/RETENTION OF YOUR DATA IF YOU HAVE LEGITIMATE INTERESTS TO DO SO THAT OUTWEIGH OUR INTERESTS.

Once the retention period has expired, the data will be deleted, unless we are subject to any other statutory retention obligations or if any other legal grounds exist to continue to store the data. If it should be foreseeable that the retention of your data will be necessary after the retention period has expired (e.g. due to imminent or pending litigation), the data shall not be deleted until the data have become irrelevant. This shall be without prejudice to any other statutory retention periods.
