WEG to supply 308-tonne transformer for 207 MW wind farm

Brazil: Electric equipment and transformer manufacturer WEG will supply a power transformer for the 207 MW Santa Vitoria do Palmar wind complex in Brazil’s Rio Grande do Sul state.

The 275 MVA, 525 kV transformer is the first of its kind produced in Brazil by WEG, and one of the largest ever made by the company.

Weighing 308 tonnes, the transformer will require special transportation to the project site, whose commercial operation is scheduled for September this year.
