The Fachverband Dampfkessel Behälter u. Rohrleitungsbau e. V. (FDBR), Düsseldorf/Germany, is launching a comprehensive realignment, which is accompanied by a change of management. Martin G. Eckert, who has been active in political lobbying in Berlin in the field of energy technology for many years, succeeds Reinhard Maaß, who is leaving the specialist association and all associated committees after over 20 years on the management board. With its strategic realignment, the association is also reacting to the rapidly changing framework conditions and market demands in relation to energy and industrial systems and their servicing.
