Friday 25 April, Karsten Moholt AS visit of 80 students from the engineering program Energy and Environment at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim.

- To be visited by students from NTNU has become an annual tradition for Karsten Moholt and we appreciate to visit, says Tommy Glesnes, director of condition monitoring department in Karsten Moholt. It is very important for us to show your business to future maintenance managers. Hopefully some of them work with us and others along with us, says Glesnes.

Glesnes was also one of the speakers for the students who received an introduction to condition monitoringl, engineering, truck and pumps, transformers, the enterprise as a whole and tour of our workshops.

- This was very nice, says Fredrik Williksen student at NTNU. - We have been visiting various businesses and the advantage of being at Karsten Moholt is that we get the opportunity to see and touch the equipment and parts we might get to work with later. - There is something completely different than learning about it in school, says Williksen.




Make reliability a reality

Meet Jason Tranter, founder of Mobius institute and an awarded speaker. 

Monday 28.04.2014, at Askøy

Jason is the author of the majority of the Mobius Institute training courses and e-learning products covering condition monitoring, precision maintenance, and reliability improvement topics. 
Titles include iLearnReliability, iLearnVibration, iLearnAlignment, and iLearnBalancing.  Vibration analysis classroom and distance learning courses follow ISO 18436-2 Category I – IV.

He was just awarded best speaker at the condition monitoring and reliability conference in Australia, and the Reliability 2.0 conference in the USA.

Mobius Institute has training centers in 50 countries, and also provides certification through the ISO/IEC 17024 accredited organization, Mobius Institute Board of Certification. 
Mobius has direct offices in Australia, Europe, South America and the United States.

Mr. Tranter has been involved with this field of work since 1984.  He has worked with people in a variety of industries to help improve reliability and implement successful condition monitoring programs. 
He has written numerous articles and presented at conferences around the world.

We hope our most important costumers will take this chance to get to know Mobius institute and Karsten Moholts condition monitoring department better.

Successful seminar regarding Electrical Condition Monitoring of High Voltage Rotating Machines using On-line Partial Discharge (OLPD) Monitoring

Karsten Moholt AS arrange technical seminars and training courses to help increase the knowledge to our customers. This is a part of our total concept where we believe that sharing knowledge will increase the products lifetime.  This time, we invited Dr Lee Renforth, Managing Director of HVPD Ltd, UK to present a seminar on HVPD’s expertise in the field of on-line partial discharge (OLPD) condition monitoring of high voltage (HV) static and rotating plant.
High Voltage (HV) rotating machines, like all other types of rotating electrical machines, are prone to breakdowns and failures caused by both electrical and mechanical ‘wear and tear’. In-service breakdowns and failures are inevitable; it is just a matter of time!

Many of these breakdowns can be avoided through the implementation of Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) using condition monitoring (CM) technology to support preventative maintenance activity. 


The NTNU students togheter with the Karsten Moholt  leadership. 

We welcome students from relevant studies.

The detection of incipient failure mechanisms and developing faults before they occur (using condition assessment and trending) can help avoid in-service failures through preventative repair interventions. 
Statistics shows that HV stator insulation failure is a significantly contributor to rotating HV machine in-service failures and on-line partial discharge (OLPD) monitoring is known world-wide as the best available method for diagnosing the high voltage insulation in in-service rotating HV machines. 

The seminar was held on our new premises at Askøy April 9th
​We hope to arrange a similar seminar soon
