BUSINESSES

The Business of CG Power Systems Ireland forms an integral part of the Power Systems Strategic Business Unit of CG and consists of 2 Divisions : Distribution Transformers & Automation Solutions

 

Distribution Transformers

Standard Distribution Transformers (IEC, EN and ANSI standards)

The Company's facilities in Cavan, Ireland, offers a wide range of standard liquid-filled distribution transformers between 15 kVA and 5MVA.

The standard range of transformers includes Single Phase Transformers starting from 15 kVA, 3 phase transformers up to 36 kV and SLIMŽ transformers. SLIMŽ transformers, uniquely designed for the wind industry, are ideally suited for environments demanding the highest levels of safety and reliability. The Company's distribution transformers combine the multiple customer requirements of being reliable, energy efficient, environmentally friendly and cost-effective - all with a proven track record.

The design of the Company's medium power transformers unites the advantages of highly developed innovative design with mature manufacturing techniques which have sustained themselves through onerous constraints expected from high-end power transformers, thus yielding an economical yet high-performance product.

 

Compact, Unit Substations & Windsubs

The Company is the leader of substation type transformers with 15 years of experience. It can provide complete solutions to its customer with MCBs, Switchgears and Cabinets. It also manufactures substation cabinets to IP54 standard.

 

Special Distribution Transformers

In addition to the standard range, the Company also manufactures special distribution transformers for industrial applications. These non-standard types are the result of extensive product development, based on anticipation, constant monitoring and evaluation of changing customer needs in the various market segments. It also has an electrical and mechanical design team on-site to ensure every product meets customer requirements.

Capabilities

  • Tank Factory and Paint Line

    The Irish plant is capable of making and painting its own tanks up to 1000 kg tank range. This brings plant flexibility to deliver transformers with an 8 week lead time for a standard transformers.

    The Company's superior paint system, incorporates zinc phosphating and electrically applied liquid paint under the customer specified final powder coating. The system is one of the most up-to-date developments in the field of finishing and the quality obtained is comparable with that required by today's automotive industry for modern car bodies.

    Tests by independent laboratories have shown that transformer tanks treated in this way can easily withstand the 2,000 hours hot salt spray scribed test carried out in accordance with the ASTM B117 and DIN 50021 standards.

  • R & D

    R & D has been active in Ireland for two years and enjoys the support of the IDA. In 2009, many enhancements were achieved and new products have been developed and manufactured in Ireland. Some prominent examples are Scott Transformers and a 5 MVA Transformer with External On-Load Tap changers.

 

Automation Solutions Division

Established in 1986 and trading formerly as Microsol, the Automation Solutions Division is the Global Automation solutions provider for the Power Systems Strategic Business Unit of CG. The Division is headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, which also undertakes the R&D development in this business area.
