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 CO2 emissions. 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.
GBE also produces special transformers and reactors for measurement and testing laboratories. These products are executed according to customer specifications, guaranteeing a constantly high-performance product with a design geared towards specific operating conditions. There are numerous references of supply to testing rooms (ABB, Marelli, General Electric) and the experience we have acquired has allowed us […]
We have already completed numerous, prestigious installations worldwide In all the countries where investments are being made in new transport infrastructures, GBE is the leading the way on the strength of its success as a qualified supplier for the underground systems in Warsaw (Poland), Sofia (Bulgaria), Helsinki (Finland) and Tallinn (Estonia). These are just a […]
For GBE, Objective 4.0: the fourth industrial revolution With the advent of the so-called fourth industrial revolution, thanks to the diffusion of new digital and non-digital technology, the industry is undergoing a profound transformation of the mechanisms that have produced value, innovation and well-being. Once again, GBE is not satisfied to just sit back and […]
