Elliott Group has opened new 53,800 sq.ft. (5000 m2) manufacturing facility in Bengaluru, India. The new factory shares the same campus as the company’s existing service center in the Bidadi Industrial Area southwest of Bengaluru. Fully staffed and equipped to design, manufacture, and test Elliott YR steam turbines, the facility also houses engineering, sales, and service offices, as well as a training center.
This new factory is only the second Elliott facility in the world to manufacture the YR line of steam turbines. Until now, its plant in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA, served as the sole location where these turbines were built.
The Bengaluru YR factory represents an expansion of Elliott’s long-time presence in India. “This new facility will allow us to better serve our in-country customers and new clients, and it will be strategic in the growth of our business,” said Nick Dorsch, vice president of industrial products. “It will also serve as a gateway for customers throughout South Asia, providing a single, regional source for the sales and support of Elliott YR turbines.”
According to Elliott, at this time there are no plans to manufacture products other than YR turbines at the new factory. However, its full-service India repair shop and Bengaluru-based field-service team services the company’s existing installed base of Elliott compressors, expanders, and turbines, as well as rotating equipment from other OEMs.
Elliott’s global installed base totals more than 70,000 units, with hundreds of Elliott YR steam turbines and other Elliott machines in service in India today. The company employs 2600 people in 40 locations around the world. Elliott Group is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ebara Corporation, a major industrial conglomerate headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.
