VanTran was up to the challenge of customizing a 5 MVA transformer to fit in the place of a 51-year-old transformer on the second floor of an enclosed motor control room. The task not only consisted of fitting the new unit on the existing pad, but also align the air terminal chambers and bushings to match up with existing infrastructure. The new transformer had removable radiators outfitted after transformer placement due to depth restrictions in getting the unit into the second-floor room.

VanTran engineered and built a transformer to exact dimensions within inches of the existing transformer to ensure problem-free installation and commissioning of the transformer.

  • Custom and exact dimensions for replacing aging infrastructure.

  • Design accommodating logistics for facilitating transformer placement indoors on second floor of building.

  • On-time delivery along with plug-and-play design ensuring outage was on schedule securing revenue and earnings.
