Some Projects can be a Little ‘Testing’

A NATO Classified Project progressing in an anonymous location does sound like a rather fanciful statement, but we can assure you, this project is anything but.
This particular engine has to be extensively tested over many hundreds of hours to demonstrate its reliability and durability to our Customer, before it is integrated into the rest of the bespoke genset.

 

Warship: Life at Sea

This week, the first episode of the new documentary ‘Warship: Life at Sea’ was aired.

This incredible series gives a behind the scenes look at the everyday life onboard one of these T45 Destroyers. G & M was commissioned to produce the highly specialised emergency generators for all six of the Daring-Air-Class Defence Destroyers. Let’s see if we can spot one of our gensets in the next episode!

Gensets for Extreme Conditions

Here at G & M, we are excited to have started working on a brand new project which we have secured. The order is for multiple generator sets worth in excess of £1m.

We have been selected due to our Customer’s confidence that the finished product will withstand the extreme climatic conditions of the Middle East – a confidence based on our many decades of providing  Generating Solutions. Cummins diesel engines and CGT Stamford alternators have been selected for this heavy duty application.

Kilimanjaro VII

Kilimanjaro V11 – the first passenger ferry to be powered by Cummins’ latest QSK95 propulsion engines.

Capable of 32 knots and carrying 500 passengers, this new generation high speed ferry depends on AC power from 2 x Cummins C-Power marine generators packaged and tested by G & M TEX in its new factory facility in the U.K.

Our New Home

Our brand new manufacturing facility was completed in January 2017 and is fully up and running!

Our fantastic new home offers increased capacity, more efficient working space. It accommodates all of the facilities we had before, plus ones to enable us to run with current product trends.

This is allowing us to work more efficiently with an even higher quality, so it has been a revolutionary refurbishment for us. Here are a few of the things which we have benefitted from since:

  • Increased fabrication capacity to 5 tonnes per piece
  • Upgraded test capability to 4500kwe (5625kVA)
  • Enhanced test equipment for variable speed generators
  • Easier testing for Diesel Electric Propulsion Generators
  • Improved air flow for testing Radiator cooled sets >1.5mVA
  • Increased handling capacity to 40 tonnes
  • Packaging of Medium Speed Generators
  • Test capability for Natural Gas and Dual Fuel engines
  • More efficient Paint Shop access for larger items
