Solar Turbines in the Czech Republic
Shared Services Center
Most of our production and business activities are coordinated in our main offices in Prague. We have open positions mainly in administrative, IT, finance and purchasing, as we support our factories in Žatec and Žebrák and the whole region EAME.
Our Prague offices are located in the beautiful administrative center Stodůlky. You can look forward not only to working in a modern environment but also to being part of a diverse international team with up to 13 different languages represented. Our primary language of communication is English.
Žatec Operations Center
The Žatec operations center is a part of our worldwide network and along with our facilities in the USA is among the world leaders in the repair and overhaul of turbomachinery components.
Our key focus in Žatec is the general overhaul of Solar gas turbines. Disassembled turbines are thoroughly inspected, cleaned and repaired part by part before the entire turbine is reassembled. Cutting edge equipment in our machining center allows us to continue in the long tradition of machining in the Czech Republic and at the same time helps us meet our customers’ expectations.
In Žatec we are looking for expert machinists above all. You can find work with us as a shift-worker or in management. Applicants can look forward to the opportunity to work on international projects and in some cases even travel to foreign countries as part of the job.
Žebrák Testing Center
The Žebrák testing center is where we perform final assembly and testing. New or repaired parts from Žatec are used to assembly complete turbines, which are then tested and sent back to final customer.
Working at the Žebrák center offers the chance to work together with experts in the field from all over the world.
Žebrák has a modern training center that serves both our customers and employees and provides an opportunity for their development.
