GSD Großanlagen- und Schwermaschinenbau Dessau GmbH

The GSD Großanlagen- und Schwermaschinenbau Dessau GmbH, founded in 1999, is located at Dessau. Our approx. 110 employees process approx. 50,000 tons of heavy plates and 20,000 tons of castings and forgings each year on approximately 20,000 m² of halls and 15,000 m² of free space. The regular production capacity of the plant is about 200,000 hours per year.

Solutions from a single source

In the field of heavy machinery and plant engineering, we are at your disposal for complex solutions “from one source” as well as for large-scale assemblies, preservation and final assembly work. Alongside complete steel tube towers for wind power plants, there are also mills, coolers, drums and rotary kilns produced at the site in Dessau.

We offer the complete production of large-scale assemblies based on a cylindrical or conical design up to a total tonnage of 160 tons.

This product flexibility opens up a wide range of opportunities for customer cooperation in various industries, such as:
