Customer variance and globalization in transformer production
The fact that transformers are increasingly being equipped with intelligent sensor systems, automation functions, and communication capabilities is presenting their manufacturers with ever greater challenges when it comes to system integration. The wide variety of systems, manufacturers, technologies, and extension options is increasing complexity, requires new expertise to be acquired, and is gradually changing the process landscape. Although transformer manufacturers are shouldering a significant share of this growth trend, they are hardly reaping any of the financial rewards. As a global provider of on-load tap-changers, sensors, and transformer accessories, we have made it our mission to manage the complexity of our customers and have professionalized our processes to meet the requirements of a global market for critical infrastructure. You can benefit from our experience!
