Powertech Transformers (PTT) has received an order for several 800kVA 11600/420V miniature substations worth R1,9-million.

The order forms part of the three year contract awarded by City of Cape Town which PTT received the bulk due to their impeccable track record with City of Cape Town over a couple of decades.

Powertech Transformers has supplied the City of Cape Town Power as well as distribution transformers and miniature substations for many years, having been the first manufacturer to comply with the council’s stringent low-loss requirements. PTT’s Cape Town factory has been supplying distribution transformers fully short circuit tested since the late 1990s.

Powertech Transformers has a MERSETA accredited training facility in its Cape Town premises.

This is currently the only training facility in South Africa accredited to provide skills training against 11 registered national unit standards in the disciplines linked to and embodied in transformer manufacturing, including welding. Generic skills such as core stacking, HV winding, LV winding and transformer assembly are also offered.
