Elsewedy Electric has signed an agreement with Wolong Electric, one of the world's top manufacturers of electric motors, for the trading of electrical motors and establishing a world-class service center, while exploring a strategy to localize the motor industry in Egypt.
Wolong Electric will provide top quality electrical motors that comply with IEC and NEMA standards to the Egyptian market. Within two years, Elsewedy Electric will locally manufacture the products that will be used in various industries starting with home appliances and electric vehicles to medium voltage motors used in heavy industries. This step will energize manufacturing different items along the production line domestically.
As per the agreement, Elsewedy Electric will also establish one of the biggest service centers in the region with a cranage capacity of 50 tons; in addition to the latest motor rehabilitation technology, a VPI insulation system for insulation of medium voltage coils up to 15 kV, as well as the ability of rotor balancing up to 20 tons and 6 meters long. The motor service center will be equipped with a test bench which can examine motors up to 10 MW and 15 kV.
