The portfolio includes Birr Machines designed generators, replicas and brand-independent repairs.

We are specialists for the engineering and manufacturing of synchronous generators for nearly all existing application e.g.: power plants, diesel and gas engines, gas and steam turbines, hydro turbines, on- and offshore rigs, traction and auxiliary power applications for railroads, diesel and electric propulsion, shaft generators, auxiliary generators for marine applications.

Our generators department in Germany, Ingolstadt, is lead by Mr. Willi Vogtner, former general manager of Cummins Generator Technologies Germany GmbH and former generator manufacturer AVK, Germany. Focus with the experienced design team is on special designs of synchronous generators.

Generator arrangements

We build and maintain horizontal and vertical generators for any requirement.

Power Range
