Motor & Drive

With its Motor & Drive offer, Actemium provides a comprehensive and efficient service. Assessment, service quality and responsiveness are the three mainstays of Actemium’s teams.


The Motor & Drive offer concerns all rotating electrical machines, such as high or low voltage DC, synchronous and asynchronous motors and all ancillary equipment: alternators, generators, transformers, variable-speed transmissions, magnetic stirrers, furnace coils, etc.


The inspection, assessment and maintenance services provided for rotating machines by Actemium ensure the highest level of availability for your production plant. Containing operation costs and guaranteeing safe operation underscore the constant aim for global industrial performance.

With its Motor & Drive offer, Actemium provides a comprehensive and efficient service. Assessment, service quality and responsiveness are the three mainstays of Actemium’s teams. If needed, they can be available 24/7.


Actemium employees are trained and certified to work at operating sites with high safety requirements: the absolute priority right from the site preparation phase. Shared vigilance is maintained throughout the entire service operation.



Meet industrial clients’ expectations

The expertise of Actemium’s teams is unique on the rotating electrical machines market. They are able to respond to all requests, whatever the industrial client’s needs and the type of equipment concerned – even the most specific. They operate both on site or in their own workshops.

Installation operation reliability and safety

Assessing the fleet of motors and other rotating machines is the first step in determining the level of wear. Actemium provides high value solutions to ensure installation operation reliability and safety, for example, predictive maintenance that involves adding instruments to certain key components of a motor to monitor certain parameters over time (temperature, ageing, etc.).

Guarantee industrial performance

The Motor & Drive services provided by Actemium are performed with one goal in mind: provide optimum operation of motors and other rotating machines to ensure process continuity at the relevant industrial site. Concretely, this involves service operations provided 24/7 in order to limit production losses in the event of equipment failure.

Supporting industrial clients

The Actemium specialist Motor & Drive teams are in direct daily contact with their clients. Along with this presence, the teams listen constantly to their clients’ needs and have a deep understanding of their businesses. They can follow their industrial clients anywhere in the world under solid partnership agreements.


Working on site

Actemium’s Motor & Drive specialists are certified to work at their clients’ industrial sites. They have the tools and equipment needed to perform the many operations involved: diagnosis of rotating machines in place, corrective maintenance, disassembly, reassembly, laser aligning, commissioning assistance, armature switching, vibration measurements, etc. The focus of their work is to keep any disruption to the manufacturing process to a minimum.

Workshop servicing

Once delivered to the workshop, rotating electrical machines are completely disassembled, cleaned and repaired as-new both electrically and mechanically. Motor servicing includes a whole series of operations: metrology, static and dynamic balancing, metal-plating, parts machining, casing and stator reconditioning, shaft manufacture, paintwork, etc.

Winding for rotating machines

Windings are performed by Actemium’s Motor & Drive teams for all types of low voltage, high voltage and direct current rotating electrical machines. This work is performed in workshops equipped with cutting-edge equipment, such as unwinding ovens, winding machines, vacuum impregnation stands and even controlled winding curing chambers.


Test benches

All tests prior to re-commissioning the serviced and/or repaired motors are conducted in Actemium’s workshops. These are equipped with benches able to perform no-load and service tests, which can also be used to perform vibration analyses and stroboscopic tests of the machines being serviced.

All-inclusive or shopping list

Actemium’s companies have expertise across all areas required for the Motor & Drive activity: audit, engineering, consulting, studies, repair, servicing, maintenance (curative, preventive and predictive), sale and supply of new motors. These services are available by shopping list to meet a specific need, or under an all-inclusive service contract to complete a project from A to Z, or multi-year contracts.

Multi-brand offer

Actemium’s business is operated entirely independently from manufacturers of rotating electrical machines, even if partnerships have been formed with some of them. This position means it can respond to all its industrial clients’ demands whatever the brand of equipment concerned.

National or international contracts

Actemium is positioned as a single point of contact for its industrial clients for Motor & Drive services. Its teams can submit proposals to national or international calls for tender, as they belong to the one brand with presence in dozens of countries around the world.


Actemium’s specialist Motor & Drive companies mainly service clients in heavy industry: steelmaking, petrochemicals, chemistry, oil & gas, energy production, rail traction, hydropower, cement works, etc. They also work with papermakers, pharmaceutical industries, automobile OEMs, quarries and material producers, as well as the wind energy and marine industries.


Inspecting and assessing fleets of rotating electrical machines demands cutting-edge technical expertise. These services are now systematically outsourced. Actemium’s Motor & Drive companies are uniquely positioned in this respect as they have all the specific authorisations and certifications needed.


Actemium’s Motor & Drive teams are renowned for their ability to perform all necessary tests on electrical equipment in accordance with France’s Apsad D19 standard (infrared thermography) and to provide the associated certificates needed by our industrial clients as proof for their insurance companies.


Equipment availability rates are a key factor in industrial performance. Everything must be done to prevent faults. Actemium’s offer combines:

  • Preventive maintenance: vibration analysis, stroboscopic inspection, insulation checks, etc.
  • Predictive maintenance: instruments added to rotating machine components to monitor temperature, ageing, etc.

Rotating electrical machine maintenance is the prime area of expertise of Actemium’s Motor & Drive companies. They provide their services under multi-year maintenance contracts or emergency repair operations on site or in the workshop. In all cases, and whatever the machine’s brand, a completion certificate is issued as proof that the machine’s characteristics comply with those stated by the manufacturer.


Actemium is aware that energy performance is a factor in overall industrial performance. As motor efficiency rates are constantly improving, Actemium’s teams provide their clients with equipment presenting the best possible characteristics (IE3 efficiency standard). The addition of variable speed transmissions to motors is another way of reducing electricity consumption.


Actemium’s Motor & Drive technicians and engineers are ideally placed to advise their clients about the best solution to the problem at hand. Providing both motor repair and new motor distribution services, they can advise clients whether it is economically more advantageous to repair a motor or replace it with its new equivalent.
