Our Mission & Values
AJ Power’s mission is to facilitate the reliable generation of electrical power worldwide based on core values of passion, commitment, innovation, respect and integrity.
We achieve this through providing ‘state-of-the-art’ generating sets on short lead times at highly competitive prices.
AJ Power Limited is committed to developing, producing and selling the ‘best generating sets in the world’.
As a volume manufacturer, the use of modern automated techniques ensures the name AJ Power is synonymous with the efficient and economic provision of quality electric power generation. Each AJ Power generating set is manufactured in the company’s modern 10,000 sq metre facility. Our superior products are not a matter of chance, but of sound engineering processes and superior components.
Metal Fabrication Facility
In August 2017, AJ Power started the construction of its new 12m high industrial facility. A quarter of this new building is being used as a warehouse for storage and the remaining area houses our fabrication facility capable of producing our entire range of heavy fabrication. Details of factory are listed below.
AJ Power Limited is in receipt of SFA Capital support from Invest NI for the construction and fit out of a new Metal Fabrication Facility. This project which is part-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the Investment for Growth and Jobs Programme 2014-2020 aims to cement AJ Power's position as a leading global genset manufacturer and provide jobs to the local economy.
CNC Plasma Cutting
This machine uses market leading ultra-sharp cutting technology to profile parts with a laser quality cut at a fraction of the cost. We can profile parts from 1mm thick through to 30mm enabling us to cut any part for our entire range of base frames.
Tandem Brake Presses
The new state of the art Durma 4m + 4m Tandem Brake Presses commenced. Each machine has a pressing force of 320 Tonne and will enable us to fold parts for our entire range of baseframes for the 3 series to 9 series gensets.
Wet Paint Booth
The new state of the art wet paint spray booth enables us to paint any out of size bespoke structure up to 4m x 4m x 12m. The booth incorporates full ceiling ventilation and side wall extraction units and can be operated in two cycles, spray and bake. The booth has been configured so we can split it in half in order to maximise efficiency when painting smaller assemblies or parts. Fuelled by natural gas and incorporating market leading spray booth technology our new booth will ensure we remain competitive, efficient and produce high specification wet paint finishes on all our components and assemblies which will give maximum performance in even the harshest environments.
The purpose built shot blasting booth provides us with the perfect enclosure for carrying out the surface preparation required on our base frames to ensure they are perfectly clean and have the required surface profile for powder coating. This stage in the surface finishing of our base frames is critical and having such a high specification booth with full room extraction, shot blast recovery system and operator breathing equipment not only ensures our base frames go through the correct process but creates the ideal environment for our employees to work in.
Powder Coating Booth & Curing Oven
Our new bespoke powder coating spray booth and curing oven has been specifically designed to enable us to paint our entire range of base frames. The booth itself incorporates a down draft system ensuring the room remains free from overspray powder and the operator is protected by breathing equipment and a dedicated fire protection system. The oven is fuelled by natural gas and incorporates the latest burner technology to ensure we can cure our base frames as efficiently as possible.
Automated Assembly Tracks
Our 3, 5 and 7 Series ranges (up to 770kVA) are produced on automated assembly tracks.
Manufacturing a diesel generating set requires an extensive assembly line and our highly qualified experts assemble the components using the latest technology.
Advanced Test Cells
All AJ Power products undergo comprehensive testing prior to despatch using microprocessor controlled load banks. The company has an accredited on-site facility for noise testing in compliance with CE and undertakes electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing of its products.
The newest addition to the main AJ Power factory is a three station test cell which is serviced by two fully automated production lines. Incorporated in the test cells is a dedicated "Research and Design Station" where our engineers can carry out research in an 'off-line' scenario. Simultaneous testing can be carried out at all three stations.
Large Machine Assembly Hall
Our ultra-modern large machine assembly hall facilitates the production of our 9 Series range.
The 12 metre high building incorporates a 32 tonnes gantry crane and two state-of-the-art fully acoustic test cells.
The assembly hall facilitates the building and testing of generating sets from 800kVA to 4000kVA at low voltage, as well as high voltage and synchronisation.
Engine and Alternator Stocks
AJ Power maintains a large stock of engines and alternators to reduce customer lead times.
This means we can be flexible in meeting customer requirements for our product, in terms of both the lead time and size of the generator.
We work closely with the customer to ensure they can meet their requirement.
