Mobile Substation Transformer Meets Rapid Response Power Needs

August 23, 2016

Transformer failures can strike at any time due to natural disasters and operational disturbances. The question is not if, but when the situation will arise.

After a failure, transformer repair or replacement can take months to complete. Utilities and industrial manufacturing facilities cannot operate without power for that long, and unplanned outages can have a devastating effect on people, property and revenue. “Renting a mobile substation transformer is a viable solution to downtime challenges,” said Ken Bryman, Industrial Business Development.

Solomon Corporation has available for rental, a 10,000 KVA trailer mounted mobile substation transformer capable of powering a small town or a part of a manufacturing facility such as a chemical plant, a steel mill or a paper mill. It does have some flexibility, Bryman explained; it is designed for use with a primary voltage of 110,000 or 67,000 or 33,500 and a secondary voltage of 12,470Y/7200. Our field service team is equipped to assist with emergency response, and can help deploy the equipment and manpower within hours depending on the location.
