New transformer delivered to a substation in Greater Boston

USA, Massachusetts: A large autotransformer was delivered to Eversource’s substation in Woburn, Massachusetts, which should help improve electric reliability of the regional transmission grid operated by ISO-New England.

The new 230-tonne autotransformer was moved from a dock on Beecham Road in Everett by a transport trailer to the Woburn substation where it was installed, reports Wicked Local.

The transformer will provide the area with additional electrical capacity to meet the electricity needs of residents and businesses in Greater Boston and surrounding communities.
