Slaters on-site



These bulletproof early 1950s era 1000kVA English Electric transformers had given a lifetime of service but eventually reached the end of the line.

Over a planned Easter factory shut-down, our contracting division replaced the old units with two new 1000kVA 11000/433V #transformers complete with LV feeder cabinets, cabling, containment and a good clean out of the transformer pens.

Well done to our team on another turnkey #transformer supply & installation job completed on time and on budget.

Dispatched this month

2no 1000kVA 11000/433V copper wound Tier 1 distribution #transformers with close coupled 1600A LV feeder cabinets dispatched this afternoon.

These transformers will be installed by our #electricalcontracting division over the Easter weekend including all HV & LV cable works, containment and commissioning.
