CESI Webinar – The role of Green Oil for Power and Distribution Transformers
23 . Jun . 2020

On Thursday, June 25, at 15.30 CEST our webinar will present to the audience the main technological steps in the development of sustainable dielectric fluids and the main improvements connected to their use in the electricity transmission and distribution sector. With the guidance of our speakers – Frank Busse (Senior Consultant for Power and Distribution Transformers at KEMA Labs), Fabio Scatiggio (Chemical Laboratory Manager at TERNA) and Kevin Rapp (Principal Scientist at CARGILL Bioindustrial) – the webinar will explore the main challenges and opportunities linked to the shift to natural esters.

The journey from the first prototypes to transmission and distribution utilities, and large-scale applications, is constantly moving forward, pushed by the strong drive of public opinion in modern societies to switch to a sustainable and environmentally friendly future. In this respect, one of the trends in the electromechanical industry is the progressive shift to natural ester as dielectric fluid used in power and distribution transformers.

Furthermore, the necessary quality assurance and control processes linked with transformers design and manufacturing, which must be taken during the shift from traditional mineral oils to natural esters, will be discussed by our three speakers during the webinar. As the shift to natural esters represents a key step towards greener and more sustainable future transmission and distribution networks, “Transformers’ Oils go Green: are they worth the change” will tackle this issue, from three different points of view and perspectives: the oil industry, the transmission utility and the independent test laboratory.
