Another 500MVA transformer unit to aid in supporting Eskom grid

Another 500MVA transformer unit to aid in supporting Eskom grid

In South Africa, a local Pretoria-based transformer manufacturer’s high voltage unit effectively passed all factory acceptance tests at the end of July.

SGB-SMIT POWER MATLA added to its successful track record of manufacturing and testing high voltage transformers with the most recent 500MVA 400/132/22kV unit passing all factory acceptance tests (FAT). 

This is the second 500MVA 400kV unit successfully passing FAT in 2020. The Pretoria plant currently has three additional similar units in production, all which are destined for South Africa’s national utility to support and augment the power grid.

This achievement demonstrates the commitment, knowledge and experience within the local South African team, which are bolstered by the group’s technical specialists.

The latest success also demonstrates the South African capability to provide sustainable solutions for the African continent.
