Following on from the recent agreement with Nidec for the sales and servicing of medium voltage variable speed drives, Sulzer has signed a partnership deal with Kato Engineering to provide repair and maintenance services for generators in North America and Australia.
Sulzer has considerable expertise in generator repair as well as providing maintenance services to customers for turbines, compressors, pumps, motors and gearboxes, so adding the Kato generator range will provide greater product coverage. Similarly, the level of expertise offered to existing Sulzer customers will now be available to all those operating Kato generators.
The Kato range of generators is in operation extensively in the oil and gas, mining and power generation sectors. As such, they provide vital power supplies and their continued reliability is enhanced by periodic maintenance and planned repair. Now, these services will be more accessible by using Sulzer’s global network of service centers, which are equipped to deliver fast and cost-effective solutions.
For the customer, receiving local maintenance support that is backed by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in terms of technical drawings and parts, ensures a fast response and a reliable service.
