More Information

Overhauling your equipment at the right moment may even be the best decision from an economic perspective, in addition to having technical advantages. Investments at the wrong time in the life cycle of the transformer often do not have the desired effect. We help you select an effective and economically sensible strategy for overhauling your transformer and optimizing its service life.

In addition to the consulting service, as a complete provider, we also offer implementation of the measures. 

Often, defective availability of the transformer can lead to damaged or aged components and accessory parts. That is why regular monitoring and maintenance of these components is essential for ensuring long-term availability of the transformer.

We support you in ensuring maximum availability of your transformer and provide you with replacement solutions for:

  • Pumps
  • Bushings
  • Cooling and fans
  • Control systems
  • Dehydrating breathers
  • Protective devices
  • Transformer accessories
  • And more

Do you want to make your aging transformer fit for the digital future? Then contact us. We replace old control systems with modern ones in order to meet requirements like monitoring, automatic control, digital communication or data integration:

- Integration of modern monitoring systems
- Retrofitting with intelligent sensors
- Intelligent communication interfaces to the control system
- Installation of maintenance-free components
- Retrofitting old voltage regulators

On-load tap-changers are key components for reliable operation of the transformer. Replacing an old on-load tap-changer cuts down on high maintenance costs and guarantees you an easy supply of spare parts in the future. 

We offer turnkey retrofit solutions for reducing maintenance costs and increasing the reliability of your transformer.
