Replacement of transformers

ENEA Operator is implementing a project to replace old transformers, MV / LV  with high losses in the transformation of energy (stray load and no-load losses), to energy efficient units in order to reduce technical losses in the power grid.  The project includes the replacement of 1692 transformers  working in medium voltage distribution network in all areas of the Distribution Branches. The oldest transformers produced in the period from 1945 to 1980 are to be replaced.

1 318 transformers have been purchased, and 1 140 units of high losses have been replaced by 31 March 2013.
