Due to unexpected equipment failure, Teck Global was engaged to conduct an emergency switchgear replacement on site within a tight shutdown window and with limited prep time available. The replacement of this switchgear was critical to maintaining plant operability as the system was running at limited capacity without redundancy and any further issues could result in severe production losses.

Teck Global has a growing team in Perth, Western Australia, dedicated to HV Switchgear commissioning. From local to site support we are equipped and experienced with the latest equipment for specialised testing. Whatever your needs may be, from Hi-Pot / IR testing, switchgear assembly verification to relay configuration & injection testing.

Teck Global was engaged to provide a standalone backup supply system for remote equipment, during unplanned supply outages / interruptions. Backup supply for the system was via a low voltage generator which was then stepped up to distribution voltage through a local transformer.

Part of Teck Global’s core design for packaged kiosk substations is to reduce commissioning and testing required on site. A key part of this is the use of Remote Telemetry Units (RTUs) in our Remote Operator Panels (ROPs).

The use of kiosk substations allows for a modular, demand based approach to satisfying power needs across a site. Compact, modular design kiosks allow for primary supply power to be distributed much closer to where energy is needed while reducing both installation costs and project schedules. Cost savings are across the board, from civil construction works, trenching, cables and opportunity costs from reduced downtime on existing systems.

We are happy to announce that we have appointed a new Business Development Manager to join the Teck Global team, Rick Sinnott.

Many people familiar with HV protection schematics and wiring will be aware of the different wire numbering on CTs but may not know why it is used or what guidelines are followed for labelling. They are often simply copied from sheet to sheet without proper checks or understanding.

The Iron core and windings play a key role in defining the characteristics of a transformer. There are a number of different transformer shapes available. Circular, oblong (oval) and rectangular shapes are the most commonly used. In this post we will investigate the difference between these shapes, and which shape offers the most benefits.
