New South America's champions of the energy transition
The energy transition is also making progress in South America. Brazil, Chile and Colombia in particular are investing heavily in the expansion of wind and solar power plants. In order for these to be connected to the grid, the grid infrastructure must be converted and smart transformers must be installed.
Traction Transformers – Future on the Rail
Tomorrow's mobility will increasingly take place by rail. For this, locomotive engines need special transformers – so-called traction transformers.
„Green oils“ – insulating liquids for a reduced carbon footprint
Mineral oils are still the standard in transformers and tap-changers. But there are more sustainable alternatives. Rainer Frotscher, an expert in insulating fluids, explains what is important.
Time of the giants: XXL transformers for more power
The energy transition, sector coupling and population growth are causing the demand for electrical energy to grow enormously. The trend is therefore toward ever larger and more powerful transformers. Three areas are particularly affected by this.
"Reinhausen is ready to deliver!"
Supply chains around the world are jammed. Long delivery and waiting times are the result. Reinhausen can still deliver on time thanks to intelligent logistics chains.
Oversized de-energized tap-changers
If a de-energized tap-changer has to maintain a huge test voltage of 1,000 kV and switch 112 kV in a single step, you need real experts. That is why Canadian transformer manufacturer PTI came to Reinhausen.
The most powerful transformers in the world for a 1,100 kV HVDC line in China
Siemens supplied 28 transformers for the converter station of a high-voltage direct current transmission (HVDC) project in China. And they included tap changers and composite hollow insulators from Reinhausen.
"We are in a growth market with the VRDT"
Since 2012, Saxon-Bavarian Starkstrom-Gerätebau GmbH (SBG) has been delivering series-production VRDTs (regulated local grid transformers). Since then, they have become established as standard operating equipment for energy providers.
Digitalization turnaround: GANZ Intelligent Solutions relies on cooperation with MR
To also ensure grid stability in the future, grid operators can rely on support from their transformer manufacturers.
"Transitioning to a solution provider presents a major opportunity for transformer manufacturers – and digitalization can help!"
Between dynamic grids, global markets and an almost unthinkable number of digitalization solutions, complexity in the transformer industry is increasing. Jürgen Ach, Director of Automation at Reinhausen, sees major opportunities for manufacturers, however.
