Trafo Power Solutions, a specialist in the design and supply of dry-type transformers, was established in 2017 to cater for the growing appetite and scope of application for dry-type transformers in Africa. Its ability to customise power solutions for mine-specific conditions has led to the company's ongoing success and recognition for its already well-established footprint of equipment across the continent. 

Through its strategic partnership with leading Italy-based manufacturer TMC Transformers, Trafo Power Solutions has access to a broad range of high-quality cast resin transformers from 50 kVA to 25 MVA with system voltages up to 52 kV with Class F or Class H insulation systems. These transformers are manufactured under stringent quality control conditions at TMC Transformers' ISO-certified facility in Italy. 

Among the recognised advantages of dry-type transformer technology is that it is safer and offers reduced energy consumption. These units can easily be installed indoors, in basements or in other confined spaces. Categorised as F1 in terms of international fire resistance ratings, dry-type transformers are self-extinguishing and flame-retardant, making them low risk. 

Notably, dry-type distribution transformers are fast becoming a more suitable alternative to oil transformers, especially in the distribution power range between 50 kVA and 10 MVA.

Demands from industry following the company's solutions-focused approach driven by customer's specific needs and project application requirements, saw Trafo Power Solutions broaden its power solutions to include custom-designed and locally manufactured mini substations as well as modular substations for underground and surface mining applications, including temperature protection, surge protection, cooling, ventilation and earth fault protection.
