Efacec delivers U.S.-made shell power transformers

Norcross, Ga., January 9, 2012 — Efacec Power Transformers, Inc. has achieved a milestone for the U.S. power industry. A shell type power transformer, completely designed and built in the U.S., has been delivered and is ready for service.

Shell transformers have been made overseas since a key manufacturer shut down over two decades ago. Efacec's plant in Rincon, Georgia is the only manufacturing plant in the U.S. to fully design and manufacture transformers using both core and shell technologies. More shell transformers are in production and will be delivered within the next few months.

Since Efacec's U.S. plant started operations a year and a half ago, it has shown commitment to its U.S. customers by delivering over 2,000 MVA of power transformers to major domestic utilities.

The newest shell unit, a 300 MVA 230/115/13.2 kV, was delivered last month to a domestic utility company. A spare unit, a 500 MVA230/115/13.2 kV was delivered to another utility in June.
