IST Power supplied medium frequency (500Hz) transformers for four 16m tidal turbines off the Northern coast of France. The scheme is one of the largest tidal arrays generating power onto the French grid. IST Power developed, designed, manufactured and type tested the transformers to IEC standard.
IST Power successfully competed and secured a 3 year contract from Northern Powergrid to supply all earthing auxiliary transformers with primary voltages ranging from 11kV to 66kV. We welcome the opportunity to demonstrate our capabilities and develop our working relationship with this valued customer.
IST Power short circuit tested a 66kV earthing transformer for Mitsubishi (National Grid scheme). The completion of this type test now completes our short circuit type test certification at all key primary voltages up to 66kV. This validates our engineering and compliance to IEC BS EN60076 standard for type tests.
IST Power successfully completed the design, manufacture, test and supply to Manchester University of one 50/100kVA 231kV test transformer to support evaluation and test of composite insulators for use on the grid pylons.
IST Power completed the short circuit testing of a 13kV earthing transformer for a supergrid Scheme for Siemens (National grid scheme).
