Trafo Power Solutions has secured the order for 13 custom-designed cast resin transformers for Rand Water’s large Zuikerbosch wastewater treatment works near Vereeniging. The water purification and sedimentation facilities at Zuikerbosch will reportedly provide an additional 600 Ml per day to the system at a project value of R3-billion, as part of efforts to meet growing water demand in Gauteng. The transformers being provided range in size from 100 to 1600 kVA, and have been modified to include earth fault protection and surge protection. This is in addition to the standard temperature protection features. The key advantages of dry-type transformers in this kind of application is their inherent safety and their ease of installation. The units can be installed inside built substations rather than having to be placed outdoors with their own civils and bunding infrastructure. Unlike oil-cooled transformers, dry-type transformers pose no risk of environmental through oil leaks or spillages.
