Custom transformers for the energy sector: 10 steps to success
Building custom transformers is one of our core activities. So how does that work exactly? Using the example of a project completed for a client in the energy sector, we'll tell you all about our procedure, in ten easy steps.
What is crucial is that the transformer transformer meets the strict safety standards as well as the client's technical requirements, and nowhere more so than in the energy sector.
Like to see a handy summary of the 10 steps?
Step 1: Draw up specifications
The client draws up technical specifications, including a description of the transformer project, the materials to be used and the requirements the transformer must fulfil. EREA will talk things over with you and advise on refinements to the technical details.
Step 2: 3D sketch design
We then send the client a 3D sketch, referring back to the specifications.
Step 3: Presentation at the client's location
EREA will present the sketch design showing the specific transformer solution at the client's location.
Step 4: Internal discussions by the client
The client will discuss the outline transformer solution and formulate feedback for EREA. The order will then be placed.
Steps 1 to 4 for the custom transformer in our energy sector example took just 6 weeks.
Step 5: Prototype
The order for the transformers is the starting gun for production. EREA begin by making a prototype which is presented to the client for validation of the dimensions and the key technical features.
Step 6: Internal evaluation by the client
The client holds internal discussions about the prototype and provides feedback and approval.
Step 7: Production of the transformer
Production of the custom transformers at EREA's factory.
In the present case EREA completed the development of the transformer within a four-week period.
Step 8: Delivery to the client
EREA deliver the transformers to the client.
Step 9: Feedback
Whether on the client's initiative or on request, EREA are provided with the client's feedback on its initial practical experience.
Step 10: Repeat orders
The present example involved the production of a range of different transformers, with a number of follow-up orders.
EREA transformers are characterised by their sustainability and energy efficiency, properties that really come into their own in the energy sector.
