Transformers’ Oils go Green: are they worth the change?

Transformers’ Oils go Green: are they worth the change?
16 . Jun . 2020

Join us on June 25, 15.30 (CEST) - we decided to focus on a key trend in the electromechanical industry: the progressive shift to natural ester as dielectric fluid used in power and distribution transformers.

Transformers’ Oils go Green: are they worth the change?, our new 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. During the webinar, Fabio Scatiggio (Chemical Laboratory Manager at TERNA), Kevin Rapp (Principal Scientist at CARGILL Bioindustrial) and Frank Busse (Senior Consultant for Power and Distribution Transformers at KEMA Labs), will explore the main challenges and opportunities linked to the shift to natural esters. Three points of view will be presented from different perspectives: the oil industry, the transmission utility and the independent test laboratory.

The aim of this webinar will consist of sharing the experience of a large-scale application of natural esters in the transmission assets, as well as assessing 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. Today, natural esters represent the major alternative to mineral insulating oils, which have been historically the main insulating liquid due to low cost and good physical properties. Certainly, the shift to natural esters is one of the key steps towards greener and more sustainable future transmission and distribution networks.  Join us on June 25, 15.30 (CEST) – click the link below to register
