This also included mechanical to electrical governor upgrades and retrofits. “Moreover we have completed few projects for replacement of electrical protection and excitation system on generators and motors,” says Tulbah.

“In 2013 we had also completed the installation of calibration benches equipment with high accuracy measuring instruments in a local refinery partnered with Nagman instrumentation which is a part of many other ongoing projects in the instrumentation field.” he adds.
