Our facilities

Žatec Operations Center

The Zatec operations center is part of our world-wide network and along with our facilities in the USA is among the world leaders in the repair and overhaul of turbomachinery components.

Our key focus in Zatec is the general overhaul of Solar gas turbines. Disassembled turbines are thoroughly inspected, cleaned and repaired part by part before the entire turbine is reassembled. Cutting edge equipment in our machining center allows us to continue in the long tradition of machining in the Czech Republic and at the same time helps us meet our customers' expectations.

In Zatec we are looking for expert machinists above all. You can find work with us as a shift-worker, leader or even project manager. Applicants can look forward to the opportunity to work on international projects and in some cases even travel to foreign countries as part of the job.
