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.
