Powering up Underground

  • Sales

Tyree has recently delivered a 33kV/11kV 13MVA/17MVA, KNAN/KNAF, FR3 Oil Filled power transformer to a mine in Mt Isa Queensland.

The transformer is installed approximately two kilometres underground within the mine and is designed to operate in areas of the mine where ambient temperatures range between 45 and 55  degrees Celsius.
As a result of this onerous specification and the extreme operating environment, the Tyree Transformer’s engineering team custom designed a robust hermetically sealed transformer.
Proven by type testing, the design met and exceeded the performance specification during testing which is now proven in operation.
