Wilson Transformer delivers two transformers to Ararat Wind Farm

Australia, Victoria: Two purpose-built transformers will arrive at the Ararat Wind Farm substation in south-west Victoria this week, marking a significant milestone for the USD 300 million (AUD 400 million) project.

The 170 MVA transformers, manufactured in Glen Waverley by Wilson Transformer Company, will be transported on a single semi-trailer as an over-sized load under escort, reports The Aratat Advertiser.

The transformers weigh approximately 96 tons each (disassembled) and upon arrival at site they will require a further two prime-movers to manoeuvre them through the undulating landscape of the project area.

They were procured at USD 3 million.
