The addition of a new crane with a 10-tonne lifting capacity has greatly boosted repair capabilities at Rotamec’s Cheddar Branch workshop. Part of an ongoing reinvestment in its repair facilities for motors, generators, pumps, gearboxes and power transmission equipment - Rotamec now has the capacity to lift and service larger units typically utilised in water, recycling and power generation applications.

A 24/7 electromechanical service provider for rotating equipment, Rotamec’s capabilities are supported by its repair facilities located throughout the UK. These allow the business to deliver high quality rewinds, machined components, remanufactured units and refurbishments on reduced lead times. To bolster this existing capability, Rotamec has added a new AG Crane that can span and traverse its entire Cheddar Branch workshop.

Simon Brooks, Managing Director at Rotamec, commented on the new crane: “We are always looking to expand our service capabilities, of which our in-house repair facilities are a vitally important part. Our customers include key players in the water sector and utilities, so we wanted to expand our workshop capacity to allow for the repair of larger motors, generators, gearboxes and pumps that are common in these critical applications. This new crane essentially doubles our on-site lifting capacity.”

The new 10-tonne capacity crane joins a 3-tonne rated crane located in the winding shop and a 1.5-tonne crane installed in the pump test facility at the Cheddar Branch. This combined lifting capacity constitutes one of the largest in the South West allocated for electromechanical repair work. Furthermore, Rotamec operates branches in Exeter and South Wales – totalling over 28,000 sq. ft of floorspace – which also provide additional repair support.

“With the new crane now operational, we are able to deliver our market-leading maintenance services for larger projects,” Simon enthuses. “We can combine fast reactions with an increased workshop capability to further reduce downtime for our customers requiring scheduled or emergency repairs of critical equipment.”
