Large size bearings for the Indian market

On August 24th 2017 a successful takeover of large sized bearings took place in Brno, namely 294 / 900EM New Force, 294 / 850EM New Force and 294 / 800EM New Force. These bearings are designed to be installed in air preheaters.

The bearings have been custom-made in the production plant ZKL Brno, a.s. for the Indian company BHEL (Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited). Since its foundation in 1964, the company BHEL became one of the biggest engineering and manufactoring companies in India. Its core business is the design, manufacture, assembly and servicing of a wide range of products and services for key markets of the Indian economy, such as the energy industry, transport industry (railways), renewable energy, oil , natural gas, and others.

The bearings have been personally taken over by Mr. R.S. Balaji who, accompanied by the Executive Director of ZKL Bearings CZ, a.s. Ing. Jiří Prášil, inspected not only the production plant but also the headquarters of the group.


ZKL is the biggest manufacturer of large-scale spherical-roller, special and split bearings in Central Europe.
