Film-worthy: Asset management in Canada

The task was ambitious: Manitoba Hydro, an energy supplier for the Canadian province of the same name, commissioned the Reinhausen Canada team (RCA) to make a 500kV/400 MVA transformer fit for the future within five days.

To do so, two old General Electric tap changers and the motor-drive unit were to be replaced by two VACUTAP® VM units and one TAPMOTION ® ED. Various attachments and MESSKO accessories also had to be installed. Thanks to thorough project planning and detailed preparation including 3D modeling, it was possible to complete all of the assembly work on schedule.
