Transformer Technologies™ One Power Solution
More About Us

Satisfied Customers

Transformer Technologies has been servicing Portland General Electric for many years. 2-49 PPM of PCB transformer oil is removed from their main storage tanks and transported to a PCB Oil recycling facility in the Midwest. Scrap Distribution transformers are picked up at PGE’s service center and processed at Transformer Technologies’ Salem, OR, facility. Transformer Technologies’ field crews are active in PGE substations, removing transformers, OCB’s, capacitors, and other equipment. Recently, a field crew assisted with a Forensic Teardown of a large substation transformer to determine the root cause of failure. Transformer Technologies is proud to provide PGE with quick response and fair recovery values.

Portland General Electric

A major California Utility required the removal of all surplus electrical equipment from four floors of a live urban substation. Equipment included single phase transformers, circuit breakers, regulators, reactors, and cabling. The building presented many challenges including limited crane capacity, confined spaces, and neighborhood work restrictions. In addition, asbestos, lead paint, and lead sheathing was present in many areas. Transformer Technologies arranged for an abatement contractor and a specialized equipment mover to assist, insuring compliance with California health, safety, and environmental regulations. All equipment was safely removed, providing usable space for future expansion and eliminating environmental liabilities.

Bushing Breaker

Mechanical Bushing Breaker – Transformer Technologies recently completed construction of a mechanical bushing breaker.  Modeled after a unit at our affiliate company, TCI of Alabama, the bushing breaker is designed to safely remove the ceramics from large substation bushings. A bushing is placed inside an enclosed box and the ceramics struck by a mechanical arm. The ceramic pieces and residual oil fall to a lower screen, allowing the oil to be captured separately.  The remaining metallic pieces are removed for further processing.

The bushing breaker provides a safe, environmentally conscience method of recycling your large substation bushings!

Stormwater Retention Pond

Retention Pond Upgrades – During the summer of 2008, Transformer Technologies installed an impermeable liner in the stormwater overflow pond. During heavy rainfall periods, excess water flow is directed to the pond.  As the rainfall subsides, the water reverses flow and heads towards the oil/water separator. Thus, the overflow ponds insures that all stormwater passes through the oil/water separator prior to exiting our site.  The liner was constructed of 8 mil polypropelyene and was heat seamed to form a continuous barrier. A six inch layer of sand was placed on top of the liner to protect it from damaging sunlight.

The retention pond liner illustrates Transformer Technologies’ commitment to continuous improvement.
