Trasfor SA- An ABB Company : Customized And Efficient Engineering For Changing Power Distribution Characteristics
The power transfer and distribution network has always been considered the weakest link in the power industry. Distributors not only have to handle varier customer expectations and paying capacities, but they also have to prevent theft, pilferages, and network losses during transmission. Though the majority of such losses could be easily prevented by implementing an efficient network management system, power loss during distribution still remains a critical problem. Power plants having inefficient transformers and reactors often perform poorly in quality of supply, balanced distribution, and cost-efficiency. Empowering Europe’s power distribution sector with its innovative and high-quality transformers and reactors is Switzerland-based Trasfor SA, an ABB company (SWX: ABBN). The company has a long-standing history as an industry leader in designing and manufacturing custom-built dry-type transformers and reactors.
Trasfor SA offers a diversified portfolio of power transmission and distribution products to Europe’s utility industry. Headquartered in Molinazzo di Monteggio, the company has several manufacturing facilities throughout the country. Trasfor SA houses expertise in cast resins, vacuum pressure impregnation, and various cooling components and is a trusted supplier of products to several energy distributions, civil, military marine, offshore, railway, and renewable energy companies. Trasfor’s highly efficient products are complemented by its decades of experience in the industry, engineering skills, and compliance with regulatory requirements. The company consistently conducts research, which has been the driving force behind its groundbreaking technologies aimed at improving the overall efficiency and reliability of power transmission and distribution networks. As a customer-oriented brand, Trasfor develops customized products that are deployed across networks of diverse characteristics, classified into two groups —standard and special solutions.
All transformers and reactors which have large production volumes with few project variables are classified as standard solutions. These products are primarily employed in electricity distribution. As energy performance, economic efficiency, and capitalization of losses are becoming increasingly important in the sector, Trasfor designs transformers and reactors that enable plant managers to use materials and techniques derived from advanced engineering projects. Special solutions are the collection of products that are designed uniquely for specific requirements. Intensification of concepts of reliability, efficiency, durability, and environmental performance are given utmost importance. These products are generally employed in the marine, offshore, railway, and renewable energy sectors. Special solutions are adorned with global competence and efficiency through the integration of various contemporary designs. To ensure zero downtime and high efficiency over time, Trasfor provides its clients with consulting, maintenance, and technical assistance services.
