Engineering create the technical solutions that deliver fit-for-purpose products and services to meet the needs of the market and both internal and external customers. A team of highly skilled professional Engineers use the most up-to-date technology and tools to develop their ideas bringing quality, cost-effective products to market.

The Installation team manages the delivery and installation at customer sites of gas turbine generation packages and balance of plant.

The departments within Original Equipment look after the Assembly of the generator sets, Procurement, Quality, Engine Repair/Overhaul and Testing.

In Assembly staff work together to produce the Siemens Energy 300, 400 and 501-powered units which are sold worldwide. Working alongside and supporting the operations are 2 other sections: Fabrication/Welding and Turbine Repair.

Procurement is responsible for both short and long-term activities that are in line with departmental and company strategies. They negotiate supplier contracts to lower total costs, reduce lead times and improve quality standards.

Within Quality there are 3 areas: Testing, Auditing & Compliance and Control/Inspection. All ensure that the products supplied to and by Centrax meet the design and specification required for long-term and reliable services while retaining our ISO9001, ISO14001 and PED approvals.

Once the generator sets have been sold and installed, this department handles every aspect of supporting our Customers’ requirements.

We have over 70 ‘hands-on’ engineers operating from the UK and depots throughout Europe, (Ireland, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands) Tunisia and Russia. Their job is to ensure our generator sets, over 300 worldwide, are maintained and kept operational in line with our long-term contractual service agreements and within the current Health and Safety regulations and procedures.

The Head Office in Newton Abbot, Devon provides the customer with logistical and technical backup, all aspects of gas turbine repair and overhaul, administration for the service agreements and parts and tooling to maintain the generator sets.

Our Business Systems team provides support to a rapidly growing company. At present there are approximately 250 users across many countries of which 100+ have laptops or are remote users.

Security, reliability and recovery are the team’s main priorities along with providing a good customer service to all users.

The department is divided into 3 sections:
• Divisional
