First VM retrofit in Indonesia
Huge success for Reinhausen Indonesia. At the start of October three OILTAP® M tap changers were replaced with three VACUTAP® VM tap changers in one of the largest steel plants in Indonesia. This was the first ever VACUTAP® VM® retrofit replacement in Indonesia and the switch to proven MR vacuum technology was quickly and reliably undertaken by experienced members of the MR service team. The OILTAP® M tap changers were overhauled during the work and are now available as reserves.
Switching to vacuum technology is highly cost-effective in challenging applications such as this steel plant. Alongside the well-known reliability this technology brings, it also drastically reduces operating costs and ensures maximum transformer availability. 300,000 tap changes without any maintenance ensure trouble-free production and have more than won over the customer in Indonesia.
