for the production of small standard electromotors have alone a floor area of 20.000 square metres.
Products -rne manufacture comprises not only electric machinery but practically all appliances and fittings used in high-tension electric installation, from small switches up to giant generators for the highest outputs. The engineering and construction departments, besides, build and equip complete power plants for hundreds of thousands HP capacity, electric railways and tramways, electric locomotives, cranes, hoists and elevators, etc.
Contracts \ speciality in which Asca occupies a leading position is the construction of large generators for high voltages, and amongst power stations equipped with such machines may be mentioned the water power works Rjukanfors in Norway, the largest in Europe.
A more recent contract is for the Norwegian Government power station at Glornfjord, to which Asea has delivered two three-phase generators, each of 22,000 KVA, for 15,000 volts, 25 cycles and 300 r. p. m., and one generator of 24,000 KVA.
Among installations of this kind are also the three waterpower works of the Swedish Government at Trollhattan, Porjus, and Alvkarleby, of 165,000, 65,000 and 50,000 KVA, all completely equipped with Asea generators. In addition to numerous other power stations in Scandinavia, a great number of generators have been built by Asea for plants in most of the other countries of the world as for inst. Canada, Australia, England, Spain, etc.
Electric Manufacture of cars for electric railrailways ways and tramways, and installation of
complete electric railway systems is
another branch in which Asea has
made enormous strides, and has exe-
The Swedish Riksgrans (Border)
Railway, the largest section of which
runs north of the Aretic Cirele, is now
completely electrified from the Gulf of
Bothnia to the Atlantic Ocean. This
is one of the largest electric railway
undertakings in Europe, and was
commenced in 1910. The construction
works includes the power plant at
Porjus, several substations, trans-
equipment of locomotives of a very powerful type for hauling the heavy ore trains.
The electrification of the Drammen Railway, a section of the Norwegian »Westbanen», comprising overhead line and substation has been carried out by the company, who has also built twenty-two 950 HP locomotives for the same railway.
Organization The products of the Asea company form a very important part of Swedish exports of machines. The selling and manufacturing organization consists of branches in Norway, Denmark, Finland, Russia, England, Spain, Belgium, France and other countries; works in London, Christiania, and Jaroslavl, and agents elsewhere. This extensive organization places the Asea products within reach of users of electrical machines and appliances practically everywhere, and their high quality ensures them a secure place on every market.
