Increase Power Output
The customer, located in Venezuela, operates a generator system that required an inspection to determine damages and partial repairs.
Equipment was shut down because it presented a ground failure between coils & supports.
With an uncommon coil design & the type of failure, it was necessary to offer a winding major repair.
The EthosEnergy Solution
A FaroArm® was used to develop coil drawings as a special winding design & reverse engineering were required. After installation of the winding, electrical tests were performed according to international standards & industry procedures with optimal results.
The equipment remains operational over two years after the repairs, performing beyond original expectation. Rewinding was performed in-country. Other key highlights of the project are:
