Generator overhaul in Vesteras workshop

Today’s generators are inherently reliable. A breakdown can, therefore, come as an unexpected and unwelcome surprise for the operator. What is more, if spare parts are not readily available, the resulting downtime can be significantly prolonged. In the worst case, failure of high-speed rotating parts can have catastrophic consequences for both equipment and personnel.

Fortum eNext Turbine and Generator Services has developed a concept for generator diagnostics that supports condition based maintenance of generators. Based on about 100 identified failure modes of a generator, individually tailored diagnostics can be performed and recommendations be given to reduce the risk of forced outage and its consequences.

We invite you to follow the presentation on Tuesday May 7th 2019, at 11:00 
as part of the general session of the conference.


The Iris Rotating Machine Conference is a technical conference held annually, 2019 will be the 22nd year. This conference is dedicated to bringing together professionals from around the world to discuss the predictive maintenance technologies and to educate attendees on the practical aspects of implementing condition-based maintenance for motors and generators. Attendees will have the opportunity to share their experiences with recent failures, repair methods, testing and monitoring.
