The new VACUTAP® VRL® is the world’s most powerful on-load tap-changer in vacuum design. With this model, Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen (MR) sets new standards for the most challenging applications with maximum performance and reliability in the energy supply industry.

The departure from fossil fuels and the massive expansion of wind and solar plants is just one side of the coin when it comes to the future of the grids. The other is that the demand for electricity is rapidly rising at the same time. Not only are the mobility and heat sectors going electric, but a growing number of people also depend on electricity in their daily lives.

According to forecasts from the UN, the world population will grow to around 10 billion by 2060. But if more electricity is to flow, we need more lines and larger transformers to manage the energy flows of increasingly volatile markets so that we can provide renewable energies where they are needed and ensure a reliable supply for high-end industrial applications.

HVDC transmission is a key component of the energy transition which requires ever-larger HVDC transformers and more powerful tap changers

The new VACUTAP® VRL® is optimally equipped for the future challenges of the energy supply industry, with a maximum rated current of up to 3,200 amperes, a step voltage of up to 6,000 volts and a switching capacity of up to 10,000 kilovolt-amperes.
