Sharepart step-up transformer installed at Wilhelmshaven Power Plant

Request for Spare received on 15th of January from our German colleagues to help them out for the unforeseen outage on their step-up transformer. Delivery on site and Transfer of Title happened the 5th of February.

Last Friday, 22th of March, the 400kV transformer has been energized. During the week-end it ran under no load and starting from today the Power Plant its auxiliaries will be connected.

Due to the firm collaboration of the local technical team (S. Blind), Laborelec (M. Heylen), MP&C/MCC teams (Ch. Bouwmeester, M. Laire) and Sharepart - GDF SUEZ succeeded in installing the spare transformer of 400 ton in less than 60 calendar days.

Presenting new transformer ageing method at Cigré in Paris

Laborelec is one of the few laboratories worldwide that has developed a method for using methanol as an ageing marker for transformer insulating paper. The method allows for more accurate condition and lifetime assessment of transformers, including the new generation. We have already applied the method in the nuclear sector and were invited to present the results of our first application at the 2012 Cigré (International Council of Large Electric Systems) Session in Paris.
