We’re dedicated to ensuring your transformer performs optimally through the provision of a range of testing and maintenance services.
We provide a comprehensive range of onsite services to ensure operational availability and compliant management of any sized transformer in Australia.
We provide onsite services for the electrical testing of transformers, supported by comprehensive workshop facilities and experienced design engineers.
Our range of transformer electrical testing includes:
This capability is extended by a number of uncommitted HV sources that can be transported to site as required, ranging from 22kV AC – 100kV AC as well as 52kV AC p-p, 3ph switchboard test set.
If oil needs to be removed from site we can arrange removal and transportation of oil and associated materials, including oil where PCB contamination is present.
We also retrofill transformers with mineral or natural ester fluids.
Oil sampling is a cost effective way of determining the health of your transformer with no need for down time. Our oil sampling services are conducted by specialist personnel who have vast experience in the electrical industry. We can also train your staff in the standard methods of sampling.
Additionally, our insulating oil laboratory provides access to a wide range of insulating oil analysis methods to keep you informed on the overall health of your transformer. Our lab is NATA accredited and compliant with ISO/IEC 17025 with all work performed to Australian and international standards.
Following testing we leverage our specialist expertise to analyse the results and deliver insights to maintain and improve the integrity of your transformer assets, optimising equipment performance over its lifecycle.
Transformers generate vast amounts of test, inspection and maintenance related data during their operational lifecycle. Our transformer experts can audit this data and consolidate it into an assessment that will describe the transformer condition including failure risk. Our team of skilled experts can not only diagnose issues identified in the condition audit, but also work with you to put a repair plan in place.
This remote condition monitoring service will provide the information required for you to understand the health of your transformers and to prioritise corrective measures to extend asset life, prevent failures and ensure safe operation of assets. Find out more.
To complement site works we can overhaul and upgrade your transformer in our purpose built transformer facilities in NSW and QLD, which have the capacity to overhaul transformers up to 50MVA, 132kV and weighing up to 80 tonnes.
Overhaul works can include:
Retrofilling, replacing the mineral oil from an existing transformer with ester dielectric fluid is a cost effective, safe and environmentally friendly option of upgrading your transformer. We can assess your requirements, advise on your retrofilling options and undertake retrofilling in our certified transformer workshops.
Retrofilling with ester oil provides significant benefits to your transformer and operation including:
