Transformers

Ampcontrol’s robust, high specification, custom engineered and manufactured transformers are known for their quality and durability.

Ampcontrol’s quality, Australian, transformer designs cover dry and oil type transformers for electrical distribution substations, power generation, voltage regulation, underground mining, traction and refining applications. We are also experienced in the design and manufacture of transformers using alternative cooling fluids, including ester dielectric fluids, for service levels up to 132kV.

We don’t just manufacture transformers, we add value through our solutions based approach to specialised transformer projects. With our broad capabilities and product ranges we are uniquely positioned to integrate our power and distribution transformers with other Ampcontrol products and capabilities including fixed modular, relocatable and transportable substations as well as third party products.

To ensure you get the most out of your infrastructure we support customers with a range of transformer engineering, testing and services across the full transformer lifecycle and have a comprehensive range of refurbished and reconditioned transformers for sale or short to long term hire.
