Sulzer’s extensive repair facilities have been further enhanced with the ability to refurbish small steam turbines in Piedmont, South Carolina. This additional service complements the existing range of repairs for electric motors, pumps, compressors and generators. In addition to mechanical repairs and welding services, the service center has an experienced field services team that delivers on-site repairs around the clock.
As part of the investment made by Sulzer to improve local repair facilities, the service center in Piedmont has been equipped to carry out complete refurbishments of small steam turbine packages in addition to the services already delivered. The service center can now handle steam turbines up to 750 hp and repairs include balancing as well as overhaul of the governor and trip unit.
The experienced project team of engineers, designers and field service technicians is able to deliver repairs to small steam turbines and other turbomachinery for customers involved in power generation, paper, and petrochemical, steel as well as more general industries. This most recent addition in the Sulzer portfolio minimizes transport time for steam turbine repairs in the South East USA and ensures a cost effective repair.
