A recent case study for a transformer replacement project at McCain’s, projects energy savings of more than £22,000 per year as a result of just a single supply transformer being replaced with a Wilson e2 super low loss amorphous unit.

Wilson Power Solutions was the first transformer manufacturer in the UK to produce transformers with an amorphous metal core, offering even greater efficiency than those made from the highest grades of grain-oriented electrical steels. Wilson e2 and e2+ transformers (the plus signifies the on-load tap changer) are so efficient that they already exceed requirements of the second tier of the EU Ecodesign Directive for transformers coming into effect in 2021 (Tier 2).

 

Considering total cost of ownership for infrastructure assets is becoming increasingly common place with leading manufacturers including United Biscuits, McCain and Smurfit Kappa choosing the Wilson e2 to power their sites.

What’s more, the UK’s energy landscape is changing and security of supply in view of ever more challenging supply voltage conditions can be an important factor.

That’s why more and more of our customers are thinking about the future when selecting their supply transformers – what grid conditions will be like and the running costs over the transformers’ lifetime.

 

The typical product life expectancy for a distribution transformer is 25 years but when we made a freedom of information request to Ofgem we found that the average age of distribution transformers in the UK is 62 years.

When a transformer is going to be operational for that length of time, it makes sense to pay a little bit more upfront for a model that will perform better in terms of resilience and energy efficiency and generate huge savings in the long run.
