31,600 Transformers to be Analysed by ENDESA in the Next Two Years

Exponential growth opportunities have come in front of the transformers sector. Later last year, The Minister of Employment, Enterprise and Commerce, Javier Carnero, announced that the Andulasian Government and the energy company Endesa will analyse 31,600 transformers in two years.
The safety of workers is the prevalent agenda behind these inspections. It will take around two years to complete the entire surveying. The transformers will be tested on their conjectured and restorative supported loads. Meanwhile, in the entire procedure, if the transformers support levels are increased above 80%, the transformers will be replaced or uprooted. Carnero stated that “Of the 31 transformers analysed by Endesa, only 4.31 per cent of the transformers would have a saturation level above 80 per cent”.

Colombian EPM to Place 15,000 Green Transformers for Greater Energy Efficiency

Empresas Públicas de Medellín (EPM) is the largest multi-utility company in Colombia with a market- leading businesses in the Power & Water Sectors. In the latest press release, Empresas Públicas de Medellín announced that it will install 15,000 green power transformers that use vegetable-based dielectric oil.

These peculiar pole-mounted transformers are being operated by biodegradable & non- toxic oil have a useful long-term life & will allow greater energy efficiency. It will also increase the level of environmental sustainability amongst the sector.

These powerful new transformers are green in colour to designate that they are eco-friendly in nature. These transformers will be used for new installations & replacements in the EPM Group’s electric power distribution region in Columbia. South American companies are making different new approaches for the upcoming times.
