NYC receiving high-efficient ultra-low noise transformers

USA, New York City: ABB is providing a high-efficiency transformer solution for a large-scale project near Wall Street, Manhattan in the dense Battery Park City neighbourhood.

The solution, developed for Con Edison, focuses on safety and environmental awareness and includes dry-type ultra-low noise transformers, many of which will be installed in high traffic and environmentally sensitive areas.

As some systems will be installed underground, the transformers are capable of being submersed in water for long periods, according to the manufacturer.

Con Edison is gradually replacing transformers across the city with dry-type transformers, implementing a program that is geared toward increasing public safety while reducing the risk of oil spills near waterways.
