Alstom is an international company that provides equipment and services for power generation and rail transport. With plants and offices all over the world, they often buy and move large pieces of equipment, such as the Farrel Vertical boring mill, between countries and sometimes between continents.
This project started with a Vertical boring mill in Alabama that Alstom was interested in purchasing for their plant in India. Team Machine Tools Inc. was hired to assess the boring mill as to what level of work was needed to refurbish it. After providing their positive evaluation to Alstom, Team was then given the job of moving, refurbishing and installing it in India; a logistically challenging project that involved 3 countries and tight timelines.
