  • Increasing risk of failure
MR solution
  • Replacement of two old 25 MVA transformers with two intelligent 40 MVA transformers
  • Online transformer monitoring, bushing monitoring, DGA monitoring, cooling system control and voltage regulation
  • SCADA communication
Customer benefits
  • Efficient Plug & Play solution
  • All important data in one place, on just 1 panel
  • Increased operating safety
  • Since significantly more information about the transformers is available in real time, the state of the systems can be evaluated with much greater speed, efficiency and, especially, consistency.
