On 01st September 2018, six young people began their training at Hiller GmbH in the professions of industrial mechanic, mechatronics technician and industrial clerk. In order to get to know each other better, an excursion day with all trainees was held on 04th September.
The young Hiller team started with a very impressive guided tour through the wastewater treatment plant in Passau, which has already been working very successfully with a Hiller decanter for several years. The plant manager, Martin Grimbs, described the route of the waste water from its arrival at the sewage treatment plant to its return as clean water to the adjoining Danube.
There was also a cultural highlight for the trainees at the Passau wastewater treatment plant. The "Burgus" excavation site, a watchtower built in late antiquity, is located directly on the site of the plant. This is - next to the Boiotro fort - the only visibly preserved Roman ground monument in the Passau city area.
In the afternoon, the prospective specialists took a boat trip on the Inn starting from Auggenthal near Neuhaus in the direction of Passau. On the way back, the group stopped at the monastery of Niederaltaich to end the day in a relaxed atmosphere.
