Lightning protection for OHL by professionnals

Lightning protection for OHL when unprepared and un-calculated can lead to un-effective solution and highly expensive. On the 220kV OHL above, the TLA (Transmission line arresters) installed can cost up to 4000 USD / pc. When bought in excess or istalled at the wrong location, or the wrong phase, or in the wrong way, each mistake cost at least the price of the TLA and most likely the price of the trip that wont be prevented.

Fire prevention in electrical panels made easy, reliable and affordable

In 30% of cases, the cause of a fire in switchboards is a malfunction associated with electrical wiring. Faults may be due to poor connection, improper selection of circuit breakers and switches, old wiring or overloads. It is very important to identify weak points in order to prevent fire. A natural indicator of faulty wiring is its heat. The new FIPRES (Fire Prevention System) by Streamer works on the basis of this principle.   

The consequences of these failures entail emergency situations within power grids. They can lead to large power outages for consumers, accidents at production facilities and offices. The use of the Thermolabels system will provide continuous monitoring of electrical equipment without having to turn it down This will significantly increase the stability of the energy systems as a whole and contribute to saving expensive equipment and people's lives.

The old 1970 Westinghouse power transformer used for testing of production of new transformer was presenting a high moisture level.

The DFR moisture in paper evalutation show a value of  2.8%, which is above the recommended limit of 2%. This transformer is actually not 49 years old! It was refurbished in 1997, and after 22 years, the moisture was building up.

The manufacturer therefore contact us, in order to cure the problem by installing an online dryer, TRANSEC.
