The transformer requirements for these applications are unique, requiring tailor made solutions that can be designed and manufactured seamlessly.
Case 1 – Nickel Smelter, Indonesia
PT Inco Indonesia
1 x 95MVA 33kV furnace transformer
PT Inco produces nickel in matte, an intermediate product, from lateritic ores at PT INCO integrated mining and processing facilities near Sorowako on the island of Sulawesi. Wilson Transformer Company provided a furnace transformer with an innovative design that eliminated a large quantity of joints on the core & coil assembly, subsequently making the product more reliable.
Case 2 – Aluminium Smelter, Australia
3 x 93.4MVA 66kV rectifier transformers
A replacement program for the rectifier transformers began in 2009 when the company approved to increase metal production to 575,000 tonnes per year. The environment, sustainability, safety, quality and continuous improvement all heavily influenced the choice of supply. As a result, Wilson Transformer Company have supplied the last 3 units and have performed exceptionally well through the manufacturing, testing and installation phases.
Case 3 – Aluminium Smelter, Australia
Alcoa Portland Aluminium
1 x 360MVA 33/33kV regulating power transformer
The Alcoa smelter in Portland produces aluminium ingots and is a major consumer of power. The infrastructure is critical for Alcoa and the Victorian economy, and provides the region around Portland with significant employment.
Wilson Transformer Company recently delivered and installed a 360MVA 33kV regulating transformers within 6 months of receiving the order. This unit is now one of three critical transformers that supply power to the two pot lines that must also supply power without interruption in order for the pot lines to continue operations into the future.
Case 4 – Alcan Gove G3, Australia
10 transformers from 50 to 7,500 kVA with primary 22kV
Alcan expanded their Alumina Refinery via the G3 Project to increase the annual alumina production from 2.1 to 3.8 million tonnes and bauxite production from 6.5 to 7.8 million tonnes. The value of project was $3.1 billion.
