Dry type transformers to supply power to Vatican museums

Vatican City: As part of the order from the power utility Acea (Azienda Comunale Elettricità e Acque), ABB has supplied six dry transformers to the electrical unit that is responsible for powering the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, as well as three dry type transformers for the Auto Parco electrical unit.

The transformers are maintenance-free and have an insulation system which can operate at higher temperatures, ensuring enhanced durability and overload capacity, according to the company press release.

These upgraded features are designed to minimize environmental contamination and fire possibility in highly sensitive areas where transformers will be used.
