New synchronous generator

Published:  17 September, 2020

MENZEL GREAT BRITAIN has supplied a synchronous generator with a power rating of 11380 kVA to Westfield Power Station in Scotland. The plant operated by the Independent Power Producer Melton Renewable Energy UK had suffered a failure of the existing generator.

Purchasing the replacement generator, which was delivered in only two weeks, was significantly more cost-effective than a lengthy repair, as the IPP may incur revenue losses when the power supply is interrupted. It was fortuitous that a synchronous generator of suitable rating and performance class was readily available on the market, as this application and configuration are very rare, and such generators are usually manufactured with long lead times. Menzel Great Britain is a subsidiary of German motor manufacturer Menzel Elektromotoren who maintains a very extensive inventory.
