2250 HP In-place rewind

Beaver Electrical recently completed an in-place rewind of a large motor for a pulp mill. Due to the size and location of the motor, removal from the plant was impossible. The motor’s function is to grind cottonwood into kraft pulp before being transferred elsewhere in the plant for further processing.

Motor Specifications:
2250 HP
257 RPM
28 Pole
2300 Volt

The motor was manufactured by English Electric in the 1950’s and installed in the mill.
In 1982, after 30 years of service, Beaver performed an in-place rewind on the motor.
After another 28 years of service, Beaver performed the same service.

We are honoured by our long-time customers. Photos are from both the 1982 rewind job and the 2010 rewind job.
