Uganda Electricity Transmission Company Limited to cooperate with GlobeCore

Our company is well know in every continent of the globe, and now we are focusing our effort on Africa.

GlobeCore experts Stanislav Sukhar (Export manager) and Yevgeniy Svirid (Oil purification plants lead engineer) paid a visit to UETCL (Uganda Electricity Transmission Company Limited) which expressed interest in teaming up with our company. UETCL operates many remote substations with transformers which fail quite often. Unfortunately, transformer failures and resulting power outages are still a concern in Uganda. Accoring to Christopher Mutyaba, UETCL Head of Maintenance Department, reparing or replacing a transformer can take up to six months. Transformer down time is a loss of revenue and a cause for customer dissatisfaction. The Nigerian Power Holding Company, a counterpart to UETCL, which operates 18 GlobeCore 10000 l/h Mobile Oil Purification Plants, recommended to GlobeCore to UETCL to upgrade transformer oil purification plants.

GlobeCore Engineer Evgeniy Svyryd is making notes of required components for refurbishment of UETCL oil purification plant.

Among the recent developments in GlobeCore’s oil purification plants is a system addressing the issue of excessive foaming in the vacuum chambers of the plants, which often occurs with oil and contaminated oils.

“Globe Core currently manufactures oil purification and regeneration plants with flow rates ranging from 160 to 10000 l/h. Timely oil purification and regeneration extends lifecycle of an average transformer by 25 to 30 years. It is achieved by constant monitoring of the state of oil and paper insulation with Dissolved Gas Analysis Monitors and timely application of remedial actions – oil purification or regeneration.” – says Stanislav Sukhar, Globe Core Export Manager.

Our engineers often travel to clients to provide startup assistance and staff training. We also organize different seminars to share our experience in oil purification. The latest seminar took place in April in Kampala, capital of Uganda, at UETCL offices. It centered on benefits of transformer oil regeneration with Fuller’s Earth, environmental and operational advantages of oil regeneration over replacement with new oil.
