I bought and factory inspected a 20 MVA 34.5kV/13.8kV transformer from ABB in South Boston, Virgina last year. That was the top end of their small transformer factory. Right next door is their large transformer factory.
There are quite a few others.
well this is good news. glad to know this. do you believe that the various us companies here have the ability and capacity to replace a large number of large and’mid-size transformers within a couple’months if we have a major emp incident?
also can the us replace’all the small neighborhood transformers that will probably go during such an event? they have generally been undersized, as they count on less usage at night and cooler night temperatures to offset daytime use, so is there concern we won’t have these in needed numbers from such an event? do we have the manufacturing ability to replace’large numbers of the neighborhood sized transformers? were talking millions of small ones.
