Optimizing the service life of equipment
The global restructuring of energy systems requires investments running into the billions. One key to limiting investments and operating costs is the automation and digitalization of the grid infrastructure. Well-mastered technologies enable intelligent use concepts which allow the existing infrastructure to be loaded even further and, at the same time, to be operated for longer – with lower costs and with higher levels of operational reliability. In addition to digitalizing equipment, we are supporting grid operators in recording the condition of their transformer fleet and in realizing optimized maintenance and replacement concepts. But that is not all: We are available as the expert service provider for the entire life cycle of the transformer, both remotely and on site – from installation to commissioning, through maintenance work and retrofitting all the way to decommissioning.
5 tips for healthy transformers
How does my transformer stay fit? This is a question many operators around the world are asking themselves in view of aging fleets. Our service expert Ric Bates from the US shows what is important for long and safe operation.
Clever fleet management for transformers
Using the FLEETSCAN 2D analysis system, asset and service managers always have an overview of the condition of their transformers, making it easier to plan maintenance, updates and investments.
Retrofit: Bushing monitoring for phase shifters
Bushings are one of the most important parts of the transformer. That is why Slovenian grid operator ELES relies on the MSENSE® BM monitoring system to ensure the power supply beyond its borders.
Retrofit: Breathing new life into old transformers thanks to new tap changers
Reinhausen modernizes old transformers with new tap changers, thus extending their service life. This is the case for grid operator Elia in Belgium.
