Products and Services
The Company's products and services are divided into 2 types; they are transformer products and services, as follows:
The Company's transformer products are classified into 3 types, according to the electrical power and voltage, as follows:
Transformers which have the electrical power of over 10 MVA or having the voltage of over 36 kV (maximum electrical power is 300 MVA; and maximum voltage is 230 kV) or massive MVA shall be able to supply more electricity. This type of transformer uses oils as an insulator to prevent short circuits in transformers. The Company has manufactured the power transformers under the technology of Siemens Transformers Austria GmbH & Co KG ( VA TECH EBG Transformatoren GmbH & Co) of Austria and Fuji Electric Systems Co., Ltd. of Japan.
Since power transformers are of large sizes; therefore, before delivering the products to customers, the Company shall disassemble components of transformers as may be necessary, thus, to facilitate the transportation. Regarding the assembling and installation of power transformers, the Company shall calculate the service fees separately from the prices of transformers; and such services must be provided by experts. The majority of users of power transformers are manufacturers and suppliers of electrical energy such as the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT), the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA), the Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA), industrial estates and large-size industrial factories, which use the electricity from the transmission line, etc. At present, the Company is regarded as one of the three manufacturers in Thailand that can manufacture power transformers of 200 MVA 230 kV; and one of the two manufacturers in Thailand that can manufacture power transformers of 300 MVA 230 kV.
Distribution transformers are the transformers that receive the electricity from the distribution line of the Electricity Generating Authority. Normally, power transformers will have the electric power of not more than 10 MVA; and the voltage of not more than 36 kV.
The Company has its strong points in manufacturing special transformers, which are particularly designed and manufactured according to the objectives of use and specifications prescribed by the customers. Parts of the design and the manufacturing technology are different from the production process of normal transformers, which require a lot of expertise of the manufacturers. Special transformers include rectifier transformers, which are used in chemical industrial factories, induction furnace transformers, which are used in metals smelting industry; or transformers using other insulators such as silicone oil, etc. The Company has manufactured this type of transformers under the technology of Fuji Electric Systems Co., Ltd. of Japan.
The Company's services are diversified and provided, in connection with transformers, for 24 hours a day in order to meet the customers' demands and to provide convenience to customers. The Company has emphasized its service provision to customers by using specialized personnel and modern tools and equipment. Our service includes erection and installation of transformers, oil filling services, maintenance services, modification and repairs services, testing services, and transformer rental services.
