When site intervention is not an option, the Company workshop is well equipped to handle the whole range of refurbishment activities and repairs in-house; including increasing the power capacity.

The engineering and design departments benefit from state-of-the-art computer applications, while a fully equipped test bay allows testing of repaired transformers in accordance with the latest standards.
