Wherever there is oil or gas to be drilled, there is sure to be a GE drilling motor. Since the 1950s, GE has predominately supplied worldwide drilling industries with state-of-the-art drilling motors. GE AC & DC Drilling motors power some of the toughest drilling equipment both offshore and on land rigs all over the world. The GE Drilling Motor has proven itself to be the “Standard of the Industry,” due to its widespread utilization and excellent record of performance and reliability.
Over the last 50 years, GE Drilling Motors have come a long way. In 1955, the first 752™ DC motor was installed on a drilling rig. Since then, GE has developed the most cost-effective, highest performing AC motors in the industry. Every year, GE builds thousands of AC and DC motors with the intent of supplying the most hostile environments in the oil, gas, locomotive and mining industries with the most reliable drilling motor around.
