Pacific Powertech has also reviewed and updated solid-state relays protection and control systems parameters, including communication protocols, and has verified interstation signal reliability and accuracy. Read more...
The remote locations of the power generation stations elevate the importance of properly maintained facilities. Through scheduled annual outages, equipment is in-service ready for the remainder of calendar year. Our team is ready to take on a challenge and has travelled to these locations via boat, helicopter, and specialized off-road vehicles, to accommodate the necessary inspection, testing and commissioning, which are executed according to client and NETA MTS standards.Pacific Powertech is proud to be part of the renewable energy initiative with environmentally friendly and sustainable practices of operation.
The transformer was partially disassembled where all gaskets, valves, and required gas and oil piping were replaced with brand new industry leading components. High voltage, low voltage, tertiary, and neutral winding bushings were replaced along with custom rigid bus fabrications. Pacific Powertech also performed a confined space entry for detailed inspection of the transformer internal parts and components for signs of wear, arcing, and contamination.
The oil was conditioned with Pacific Powertech’s Baron 3600 High Vacuum Transformer Purifier System, where the oil impurities and contamination were taken out, and freshly reconditioned oil was put back into the repaired transformer. This will ensure longevity in providing steady and reliable power to the city of Surrey and the associated power distribution network.
The transformer and all of its components were commissioned as per BC Hydro and NETA standards.
Pacific Powertech is proud to be part of this environmental initiative program and to prolong the life of the existing equipment while eliminating potentially harmful chemicals from the environment.
