How to Avoid Transformer Change-Out Pitfalls & Schedule Delays

By September 22, 2023 Blog, Services
There is much buzz about the nationwide shortage of readily available transformers. It is important to note that a ‘like-for-like’ exchange will be nearly impossible for unplanned outages. As such, the likelihood that your electrical bus duct system will need to be retrofit or require custom fabrication in order to connect to the new termination points is at an all-time high. A variance in elevation, flange layout, orientation of contact surfaces, and phase spacing, are just a few obstacles that could easily cause major delays if not foreseen and properly planned for with an experienced and qualified turnkey contractor as part of your emergency preparedness and contingency planning activities.
To avoid these pitfalls, successful clients request EBI to join their pre-outage and contingency planning teams, relying on our extensive bus duct technical expertise to help guide the project to an efficient, safe, and cost-effective solution. EBI delivers a comprehensive plan to not only perform standard bus services, but also custom fabrication, modification and repair solutions to meet your critical electrical component and transformer change-out needs. No matter how simple or extensive your transformer change-out project is; whether it is planned far in advance or is an emergency, rest assured EBI will put their extensive bus duct expertise to work for you to get you back online as quickly and safely as possible.
