TRAMAG Energy-Transformers also work reliable under Offshore Conditions

Highlight of the week

With the expansion of renewable energy generation and the simultaneous electrification of mobility and the heat supply of buildings, the demand for fossil fuels such as oil and gas will decrease significantly in the coming decades. This will, among other things, also significantly reduce the extraction of so-called North Sea crude oil and the associated burden on the environment.

Although North Sea oil reserves are becoming increasingly depleted and production is declining, the North Sea is still the world’s most important offshore oil production area, with 450 drilling rigs (Wikipedia). North Sea oil is of high quality and can be transported on comparatively short distances to refineries and thus to consumers in Europe.

Individual solutions from our TRAMAG specialists

TRAMAG transformers specially designed for the reliable operation of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) are also used on these oil platforms. If the power generator malfunctions, the UPS system with electrotechnically integrated transformer steps in to maintain the voltage supply to the connected consumers and thus the operation of the oil platform.

The short-circuit voltage of the energy transformer, technically expressed as the uK value, is increased by a special core design from 3% to over 6%, based on the nominal voltage. The highlight here is that this technology adds a choke function to the transformer. This means that the transformer also provides the necessary current quality. The increased uK value also enables the inrush current to be limited, thus preventing the UPS fuses from blowing and the UPS system from being switched off unnecessarily.

For years, customers all over the world have trusted in TRAMAG’s solution competence for the use of transformers, chokes and filters for a wide variety of electrotechnical applications, including the safe and reliable operation of UPS systems on offshore oil drilling platforms.

Quality is when your QMB goes “High-Five-S” with you

We know where quality must ultimately be demonstrated and proven: In the product, in the customer’s application. But where does quality begin? On the one hand in technical development and on the other hand in the organization of workplaces in production. Employees who keep their workstations tidy maintain an overview, have access to the right tools at all times and can work on the product efficiently and with quality assurance.

Information visit to TRAMAG by the VDI District Association of Bavaria North-East

On the afternoon of St Nicholas’ Day, the TRAMAG plant in Fürth hosted an information event for members of the Association of German Engineers (VDI) from the Bavarian North-East District Association. Due to the regional proximity and also taking TRAMAG’s 100th anniversary as an occasion, we received a request from the Nuremberg VDI local group to visit our plant, which we were very happy to fulfil.

“Quality is when the Customer comes back and not the Product”

The most technically innovative or economically attractive product in an application is worth nothing if the quality is not right. Not only would the failure of the product itself have to be lamented, but possibly also further damage to the entire application.
