Alberto Azzolini, sales manager – alternators, Linz Electric discusses the main characteristics of its alternators, the factors contributing to its success and growth prospects in the Middle East 

Technical Review Middle East(TRME): What are the main factors contributing to Linz Electric's successful completion of 20 years in the industry?

Alberto Azzolini(AA): Linz Electric specialises in the design, production and sale of 100% Made­in­Italy alternators. It is part of the Pedrollo Group, a leader in the production of electric pumps. The Group and CEO’s industrial vision, with continuous investments in automation and the development of new products, have been the main factors contributing to its success.

Added to this, the quality and reliability of Linz Electric solutions and the company’s customer­centric approach, with the aim of being a part of our customer success, as clearly stated in our mission: “We produce the best electric rotating machines and the most efficient solutions in energy transformation to successfully impact ours and our customers’ development”. Also, Linz Electric’s quickness and reactiveness are really important for our partners. The decision chain is short and we are quick and agile in taking strategic decisions.

An important feature of the company is the flexibility guaranteed by a strong vertical integration of production processes – the main product components, including windings, die­cast components, shafts, electronic regulations and inverters are entirely manufactured within its factories.

TRME: How important is the MEA market to the company's growth?

AA: The MEA market is extremely important and in the recent years it has been playing a key role in Linz Electric’s growth. For the future, we are expecting to grow even more thanks to important commercial activities that are underway. Every year we are starting new collaborations with OEMs that decide to rely on Linz Electric. The company will attend the Middle East Energy exhibition in Dubai. You can find us at booth S3.C36.

TRME: Please explain the features characterising the reliability and efficiency of Linz Electric alternators.

AA: Linz Electric alternators are used in areas ranging from assembly on gensets and light towers to integration on special machinery for use in the industrial, agricultural, construction sectors and in vehicular power units. As part of the ecological transition, Linz Electric alternators perform a back­up and support function in hybrid systems using alternative energy resources and an electricity generation function for wind and hydroelectric power plants. The high efficiency of the proposed solutions also makes them particularly suitable for integration into cogeneration, trigeneration and biomass generation systems.

The portfolio has been designed over the years without compromising quality. So, all the technical decisions were taken to create the most reliable and efficient solutions. Also, all the components used in the manufacturing of alternators come from qualified suppliers that passed strict quality tests. 100% of production is made in Italy, with integrated production chain and large and extensive use of automation, which lead to extremely reliable alternators.

Additionally, every alternator that is shipped from our factory is fully tested.

How has the partnership with Mitsubishi proven to be beneficial for Linz Electric?

Being chosen for this partnership with such an important brand is an honor for us, as it proves the overall quality of Linz Electric and Linz Electric’s solutions.

Today, joining forces to seize all the opportunities coming from the market is really important and this partnership will provide important and mutual benefits to the both of us. The OEM can take advantage of this collaboration by having just one contact point for engines and alternators.
