New VACUTAP® VM® for Egyptian steel plant
Carrying out work during the holy month of Ramadan made this project a special challenge for all involved: in Sadat City in Egypt, MR replaced an OILTAP® M with a VACUTAP® VM® in a steel plant.
The project involved far more services than just the replacement of the tap changer. The customers also commissioned MR with tests prior to the exchange (resistance and transformer ratio tests on the transformer), with the emptying and shunting of the transformer as well as the actual replacement of the tap changer and of the oil/water cooler on the transformer. The service specialists from MR calculated 14 working days for the project including the refilling of the transformer and the final tests. This schedule was maintained despite Ramadan. The successful completion of the project was confirmed by the customer on 5 July 2014. Thanks to the exceptional work carried out by all service specialists on site, as well as the cooperation of the various sales and service departments involved, MR was able to win a new regular customer for its asset management services.
