Bartech was contacted by a major African company that required replacement Woodward PGA governors for their locomotives. Looking into the build of these Woodward PGA governors it was apparent that they contained many very rare and old obsolete parts. These governors were fitted on old English Electric engines still in regular service and the client was insistent on the same governor build rather than upgrading to a more modern control system.
Using our extensive global network of suppliers for governor spares, we were able to source all the items we needed to complete the build to the client’s requirements. After rebuilding the woodward PGA governors were fully tested in-house on our dedicated test rig.
Having been told by various other companies that these governors were obsolete, the client was able to rely on Bartech to find a solution allowing him to continue operation of his locomotives.
