DNV GL issues the KEMA Type Test certificates for a 125 MVA 132 kV large power transformer and a 315 kVA 33 kV earthing transformer. The certificates ensure that the transformers comply with international standards for safety, functionality and quality, to face fast growing electricity demand and use in tough power environments. It has been a pleasure to perform these tests for Voltamp Oman in this one stop shop assignment, providing the KEMA Type Test Certifications for these transformers which are so important for the reliability of the system in the region. We are proud that we could provide the confidence to Voltamp Oman and help them to be succesfull in the market place.

With over 35,000 installations in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region and partnerships with global leaders, Voltamp Group has become one of the leading companies in the MENA region in manufacturing and marketing an extensive range of power, distribution and special transformers, low and medium voltage switchgears and packaged substations, with manufacturing facilities in Sohar and Rusayl, Oman.

The transformers have been certified according to IEC standards: the 125 MVA 132 kV power transformer, tested in accordance to IEC 60076-5 (2006), the 315 kVA 33 kV three phase earthing transformer tested in accordance to IEC 60076 and as per the stringent criteria specified the Electricity Transmission Company of Oman. This is the first ever earthing transformer to be tested at KEMA Laboratories for both short circuit and for neutral fault current of magnitude 60,000% of rated current. KEMA Laboratories’ team of experienced technical experts tested the transformers in the recently expanded KEMA High-Power Laboratory in Arnhem, the Netherlands. During this process, the components have been thoroughly tested to ensure the quality of the product relating to standards of safety, functionality and quality that are needed for use in the tough power environment.
