The engineering and services group therefore intends to part with significant portions of its civil engineering business which generated a volume of approximately EUR800 million in 2013. The activities in the Construction business segment will be put up for sale. The offshore wind business, the construction of power grids and units specialized in steel construction with a volume of about EUR200 million in the past year are not included in the planned sale. The offshore wind and power grid businesses, which in 2013 together generated an output volume of EUR140 million will be brought together in a new division and allocated to the Power business segment.  Bilfinger continues to consider its successful building construction activities in Germany as part of its core business. They are an integral part of the Group's real-estate competence in the Building and Facility business segment.  Bilfinger will report on the business activities that are to be sold as 'Discontinued operations' beginning in the second quarter of 2014. The company expects that the selling process can be completed within one year.   07.05.2014 DGAP's Distribution Services include Regulatory Announcements, Financial/Corporate News and Press Releases.
