Alstom Brasil Energia e Transporte Ltda ordered PEMA welding automation equipment for wind mill tower production special grounds being that Alstom had good proven experience in their production plant in Spain.

The contract consists of PEMA wind tower fabrication line that includes PEMA Column & Booms, roller beds and Lincoln Electric Powerwave submerge arc welding machines integrated together with PEMA Weld Control system to Alstom´s Canoas Factory in state of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil. The project is a turnkey delivery with a start-up, training and supervision. The final delivery has taken place in May 2013.

Alstom chose PEMA because of their technical solution, value for the money and delivery time. PEMA met promised delivery times punctually. The order preceded negotiations with Pema and Alstom where all the requirements and needs of the customer were covered and the tailor-made design was presented to Alstom.
