Hermetic power transformers


Hermetically sealed power transformers are ideally suited for the harsh environment of offshore platforms.

They have neither a conservator, nor any dehydrating breather. Oil expansion is absorbed by the specially-designed tank and radiators. Moreover, the onload tap changer, when used, is fitted with vacuum contact chambers which prevents oil decomposition due to the switching operation.

Benefits 

  • Substantially longer service life
  • Reduced maintenance thanks to lower oil ageing, no dehydrating breather and no hydro-compensator

Characteristics 

  • Up to 245 kV, 200 MVA or 170 kV, 250 MVA
