ABB Transformer Solution saves Horizon Power $160K

 A self-contained transformer kiosk designed and built by ABB Australia resolved a major challenge mid-way through Horizon Power’s port upgrade project at Exmouth.

The West Australian regional electricity supplier had anticipated a costing of $40K for the civil works associated with a transformer pad and oil separation facility, but received a quotation of $240K from the power station sub-contractor. With time pressures, a remote location and a heated economy, the options to obtain alternative contractors did not prove fruitful.

The 15 tonne, 3.5MVA, self-contained kiosk is a first for ABB Australia and Horizon Power. The project has a potential for other sites, especially as it is constructed for cyclonic conditions.
