REPAIR FACILITY – PPI Engineering have opened a repair facility within close proximity to our head offices in Norwich.

With our vast range of contacts worldwide our aim is to help customers extend the life of rotating machines.

At PPI Engineering we design and supply generators, motors, switchgear and control equipment for a wide range of industries, including power generation, water, oil & gas, renewable energy, industrial production & food production. Our customers are global, with key clients based in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia & South America.

The repair facility is PPI Engineering’s latest development in offerings to our customers. Here we will undertake repairs and major overhauls of rotating electrical machines, control equipment and switchgear to complement our other services.

The facility has a 20 tonne crane and can handle everything from a routine refurbishment with the replacement of bearings and a repaint, to a complete rewind. With our new repair facility, we can aid customers in extending the life of their machines without the excess cost of total replacement.
