GlobeCore equipment started its operation in Indonesia

In mid-February this year, GlobeCore representatives visited Indonesia (Gresik), where they commissioned the CMM-0.6M oil purification plant.

This equipment cleans insulating oils from water and mechanical impurities. The oil is treated from cleanliness level of ISO – -/18/16 to cleanliness level of ISO – -/14/12 by multiple passes through the filter unit. A CMM-0,6M plant is  multifunctional and can be used during installation, repairs and operation of power transformers.

The important advantage of this equipment is transformer oil processing on energized transformers. The cleaning process is protected by a TSS transformer safety system by GlobeCore. An operator determines the upper and lower oil level in the tank. In emergency situation a TSS system disconnects a transformer from an oil cleaning plant.

The TSS system can be used to connect to transformer equipment for cleaning, filtration and regeneration of various manufacturers. The operator needs basic skills to connect it, and it takes less than 5 minutes. At customer’s request, TSS can be equipped with a GSM-application to work through a mobile.

Oldenburg. A Presentation for Ethiopian Guests

On 14 November 2016 GlobeCore held a presentation for visitors from Ethiopia.

The presentation focused on equipment for purification of mineral oil and servicing of power transformers, along with a demonstration of oil purification equipment at GlobeCore International Training Center.

The guests from Ethiopia were most interested by the regeneration technologies implemented in CMM-R and UVR units. The former completely restores electrical insulation oil without the need to drain the oil from the transformer or to take the transformer offline. The latter regenerates transformer, turbine and industrial oil, heavy fuel oil and diesel, pyrolysis liquid and other oil products. The interest was due to the fact that all countries address their environmental issues. Ethiopia is not an exception.

GlobeCore thanks our Ethiopian colleagues for their interest in our equipment and the new experience. The doors of the International Training Center are open to all who wish to learn how to use GlobeCore equipment and to those who want to witness its efficiency in person.

GlobeCore gains membership in the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA)

Our company always strives to keep abreast of latest trends in the power generation sector.

This approach allows us to follow the newest technologies to improve our equipment and solve practical problems. To be more involved with the wind power industry, GlobeCore joined the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA).

This decision stems from the work done by GlobeCore previously on transformers for marine environment which convert electricity of wind turbines to high voltage for the power grid. The equipment operating in the marine environment has to resist the influence of adverse factors: salt water, high humidity, temperature, etc. Therefore, GlobeCore’s CMM-0.5, CMM-4/7 and CMM-6/7 units are designed to withstand the rough conditions at sea.

The plants restore functionality of insulating oils, prolong their service life, and improve reliability of offshore transformers.

AWEA membership will help to improve existing equipment and to develop a fundamentally new equipment to provide different solutions to problems of wind power generation.
