Hungary, Kerepes: Ganz’s biggest transformer of 2023 has just successfully passed its FAT test in their factory and has reached its new base.
Transformer, high-performance electric motor and generator manufacturing and high-voltage device servicing company, Ganz Transformers and Electric Rotating Machines Ltd. has recently accomplished a new success.
Ganz’s biggest transformer of the year, with the capacity of 500 MVA/400/225(231) / 35(33.9) kV, has just successfully passed its FAT test in Ganz’s factory. Likewise, the transformer has managed to reach its new base: the substation owned by MAVIR Hungarian Independent Transmission Operator Company Ltd. in Kerepes, Hungary.
The unit is characterized by its significant size: it weighs more than 170 tons (the transformer’s fully equipped weight is 234,5 tons) and is 10 meters long and 4 meters high. Due to that fact, it is being transported to its new home on a special trailer equipped with a 4+18 wheels THP module, by a 36-meter-long truck. There, it will be connected to the Hungarian electricity supply once commissioned.
The production and successful testing of this monumental, high-performance transformer represents another defining milestone of Ganz’s cooperation with the Hungarian transmission system operator, with Ganz as one of its significant suppliers.
