Our riding team joint a product carrier 41.000 Dwd at Brazil and complete rewinding of 1000Kw 440V Generator within 21days
The team then proceeded to inspect the generator with a borescope. During the inspection, the stator core was also checked for short circuits. The stator core turned out the be in good condition so the rewinding could proceed.
For projects like these, a highly detailed preparation is crucial. Not a single item can be forgotten as missing tools and equipment are disastrous for the completion of the job.

Result for the customer: “a piece of art”
Thanks to the in-situ rewinding aboard the ship, a repair in the dry dock could be avoided and the ship could return to service in a shorter time.
The successful result of this intervention allows ELECTRICAL MARINE WORKS P.A. VALSAMAKIS to show its expertise and eagerness to step out of its comfort zone. The customer called the result ‘’a piece of art’’.
