Too late for #2 and too early for #3 transformer. Oh well. You get the picture. They were lifting big heavy equipment into a small hole with very little clearance.
Here is a bunch of crane or city view shots from yesterday morning. Such a beautiful morning.
It sure looks like they are holding the roof up.
I walked to the airport/silos and back, an hour later - same position.
Toshiba's Gas Insulated Transformer (GIT) is the most technologically advanced solution for hydro-power and underground substations, densely populated cities, mission critical substations, and offshore substations. Toshiba GITs are insulated with SF 6 gas rather than traditionally hazardous oil which risks fire, explosions, and contaminating leaks.
Additional advantages include reduced footprint and minimal long-term maintenance requirements. Toshiba has installed a base of more than 1400 units since delivering the first GIT in 1967. Voltage ratings are available up to 500 kV and 400 MVA.
No Oil to Check or Replace
No Oil Leakage
Just don’t let the gas leak out.
See phase one post installation video.
44:15 previous delivery - very cool
Edit: same video posted two years ago just one page back. @AlvinofDiaspar
155 ton transformer. 18” to spare in the opening.
They installed 2 in phase one, 2 more in this phase two with a third for back up.
