Motors & Generators
View details of our range of motors and generators which are built to meet specific customer specified requirements.


Key Benefits

  • Long-term reliable service (tens of years)
  • Replacements of old machines from various manufacturers on the original base plate
  • Possible adaptation of basic design dimensions in compliance with customer requirements
  • Top technical parameters
  • Wide scope of machines manufacture (rated power, revolutions and machine types)
  • Development focused on use of new materials, technologies and new technical solutions
  • Design of electrical machines according to individual load requirements
- Motors with unusual rated voltage or frequency
- Drives with difficult startup (high moments of inertia and load-torque curves)
- Adaptable to minimize impact on electrical grid parameters  

Standard Features


  • Production of high voltage asynchronous, synchronous, DC motors and synchronous generators
  • Horizontal and vertical design
  • Motors with constant or variable speed
  • Two-pole and multi-pole machines for various types of drives
  • Currently we provide services for our own products as well as for devices produced by other companies

  • Motors for usage in explosive environment. Enclosures: EExd, EExp.
  • Synchronous 40 pole motors (for mining elevators) powered by the frequency converter. Range: 1 ÷ 9 MW and 25 ÷ 60 rpm.
  • DC motors (for mining elevators). Range 1 ÷ 7 MW and 20 ÷ 90 rpm.
  • EExd enclosed 2-pole asynchronous motors powered by the frequency converter for revolutions up to 4800 rpm and power up to 5 MW (3MW manufactured).
  • Replacement of motors on the original base plate with unusual construction.
  • Motors with an unusual rated voltage or frequency.

*) A precise limit of the offered range depends on many aspects and is evaluated individually by our Electrical Machines Support Team.



  • The main application of our electric machines is in compressor drives, often within the delivery of compressor sets.

  • Other applications include transport systems, natural gas transmission, mining systems, metallurgy and the power industry.
