High Speed Train Alternator Repairs

HST alternator

Houghton International offers an alternative to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) when it comes to high speed train alternator repair, potentially reducing costs and lead times.

Our skilled engineers have worked on alternators in the marine and oil and gas industry for several years. This knowledge and experience can be utilised to give rail customers alternative options for train alternator repairs.


Standard overhauls can be carried out alongside rigorous train alternator testing, involving all components. This includes a full rewind of all components from main stator to auxiliary exciter, using in-house manufactured coils for optimum quality, performance and control.

In house and in situ baker testing 

If you have a problem and can’t diagnose the fault, we will come to the site and test your train alternator in situ to help understand the issue, saving the time and expense of removing units that are not faulty.

Independent of the OEMs, we have a strong culture of continuous improvement at Houghton International that allows us to be responsive to our customer’s requirements and develop solutions to meet their needs.
