MORE Power Iloilo’s brand new 30/36 MVA Mobile Power Transformer was fully energized on Sunday, March 12 and the distribution utility will transfer the load from the old Molo Power Transformer on Tuesday, March 14 to rehabilitate the latter.
The newest mobile substation boasts some impressive features, including a 30 MVA Power Transformer manufactured by ASTOR A.Ş. It also utilizes the PASS M00 technology of ABB (Hitachi Energy), which compactly combines a power circuit breaker, disconnect switches, current transformers, and potential transformers in one small form factor package.
MORE Power is the first in the country to use the technology.
The facility also has compact gas-insulated switchgears and relays by Siemens and Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL), as well as a state-of-the-art ETOS smart digital tap changer and MSENSE online DGA by Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen.
MORE Power has partnered with EEI Power Corporation, and Aktif Elektroteknik of Turkey for this project.
The purchase of this mobile substation is part of the 5-year rehabilitation plan of MORE Power to modernize its entire facility and bring in latest technology and innovations to provide top-notch service to valued consumers.
