    GBE has fully welcomed the european target
    for improved energy efficiency

     

    One year after the entry into force of the new Eco Design legislation (July 1, 2015), the results are thrilling: throughout Europe, the Directive set has been well assimilated by all transformer manufacturers with the common goal of improved energy efficiency and general environmental compatibility with the commitment to progressively reduce COemissions. The GBE vision has always been to be ahead of the times in terms of environmental respect. Values such as environmental protection and the preservation of environmental resources have prompted the company to design resin and oil transformers with low losses, even lower than the Eco standard to ensure, even before the latter entered into force. As early as 2014, in fact, GBE had begun manufacturing amorphous core transformers with performance characteristics highly superior to the “TIER 1” and “TIER 2” series provided by European Regulation.

    Especially because, in July 2017, the European Commission will examine the actual values of loss and efficiency to guarantee for Phase 2, according to an analysis of data related to units placed in service after July 1, 2015. The Directive can however be further improved: during its study and preparation, generalizations were made that do not always fit to the actual constructive circumstances. For some types of transformers and for some classes of voltage, the efficiency demands are somewhat restrictive, while a possible adjustment of the degree of optimization of the constructive design is permitted for other types. For example, no difference of efficiency for transformers with different short-circuit impedance is prescribed. Despite this, GBE always guarantees the best possible performance.

    Bunds for oil-filled Transformers

    • 10 July 2017

    A flexible, easy-to-use solution designed by GBE Bunds for oil-filled transformers are a new product developed by the GBE steelworks department. For those installations where this bund has not been included, GBE has developed an extremely flexible solution, designed to protect the environment. The oil bund has been developed in pickled and subsequently galvanized metal […]
