CM launches oil-free E Delhi transformer
NEW DELHI: Delhi's power supply saw the infusion of innovative technology with the launch of an oil-free transformer on a high platform here on Monday by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
"Besides being safer than the conventional transformer as it does not contain oil, the transformer, mounted atop a 30 foot-high platform to save space, will address the issue of traffic congestion in the area," a BSES, one of the capital's two electricity distribution companies (discoms), release said.
The packaged oil-free transformer has been installed in east Delhi that is under the jurisdiction of BSES Yamuna Power Ltd (BYPL).
"The existing 400 kVA transformer in the area has been replaced with the state-of-the-art 1,000 kVA packaged oil-free (dry) transformer. This has been possible with the active help and assistance of the MLA Ishrak Khan," BYPL Chief Executive P.R. Kumar said in a statement.
