ABB delivers an extended lease of life for the UK's ageing transformer fleet
New refurbishment and upgrading service for the two most common points of failure for power transformers – tap-changers and bushings.
ABB's UK transformer service team has launched a new refurbishment and upgrading service targeted at replacing one or both of these components offering a cost-effective way to provide a life-extension of at least 10 years to the UK's massive fleet of transformers, many of which were installed 30 years ago.
The service is available for transformers from any manufacturer, and is also suitable for older legacy designs no longer supported by the original manufacturer. ABB is able to provide a direct replacement for the tap-changer or an upgrade to a state-of-the-art vacuum tap-changer.
