Our support covers:
We provide onsite services for the electrical testing of transformers, supported by comprehensive workshop facilities and experienced design engineers.
Our range of transformer electrical testing includes:
Our oil sampling services are conducted by specialist personnel who have vast experience in the electrical industry. We can also train your staff in the standard methods of sampling.
Additionally, our insulating oil laboratory provides access to a wide range of insulating oil analysis methods to keep you informed on the overall health of your transformer.
Following testing we leverage our specialist expertise to analyse the results and deliver insights to maintain and improve the integrity of your transformer assets, optimising equipment performance over its lifecycle.
If oil needs to be removed from site we can arrange removal and transportation of oil and associated materials, including oil where PCB contamination is present.
We also retrofill transformers with mineral or natural ester fluids.
Retrofilling, replacing the mineral oil from an existing transformer with ester dielectric fluid is a cost effective, safe and environmentally friendly option of upgrading your transformer. We can assess your requirements, advise on your retrofilling options and undertake retrofilling in our certified transformer workshops.
Retrofilling with ester oil provides significant benefits to your transformer and operation including:
Ampcontrol are a Midel Service Partner.
Our engineers can conduct regular inspections to prolong the life of your high voltage infrastructure and also provide correct operating procedures and documentation to ensure a safe working environment.
Regular high voltage inspections are critical in ensuring the safety of equipment and personnel in an industrial environment. Many safety issues can be identified and prevented by performing a detailed inspection of high voltage electrical equipment and taking necessary corrective actions. When identified early, potential hazards can be removed avoiding downtime, financial loss and risk to personnel.
We can also audit the electrical system documentation associated with high voltage installations. An Ampcontrol audit includes a written report identifying areas of non-compliance and remedial actions that should be undertaken to comply with relevant standards and testing including:
As a full service provider we can provide field and workshop maintenance and testing services to rectify any issues that may be identified during the inspection.
Our customised High Voltage Installation Safety Management Plans are developed in accordance with relevant state or territory legislation.
We act as a liaison with both the network authorities and site stakeholders to develop the plan which includes site specific operating rules covering all aspects of the high voltage electrical installation.
Where possible, we review and integrate any existing electrical system procedures into the HV-ISMP while keeping within the customers controlled document framework.
As designers and manufacturers of protection systems we understand the standards and requirements relevant to your application and have the calibrated test equipment to ensure high levels of reliability and repeatability.
Our services include:
We can assist with any onsite cable request from buried services and fault location, onsite cable repairs (including confined spaces), cable testing and onsite cable relocation via
our custom cable reeler trucks.
Our onsite cable services are backed by our fully certified cable repair facilities that offer an extensive scope of works including repairs,
plug fitting and testing capabilities.
We also offer an onsite inspection package which allows us to provide a personal point of difference to managing your cable fleet.
We maintain a comprehensive mobile HV test capability including 36kV AC, 200kV AC and 720kV AV (resonate) mounted on dedicated
This capability is extended by a number of uncommitted HV sources that can be transported to site as required, ranging from 22kV AC – 100kV AC as well as 52kV AC p-p, 3ph switchboard test set.
