Siemens Energy subsea transformer design can be implemented in a wide power range.
The electrical design is based on traditional onshore distribution transformers, but with an enhanced insulation system. All materials have been tested for pressure and fluid compatibility in an extensive qualification program. In addition, the design was verified using a prototype throughout extensive tests in factory and in shallow water conditions, performed in Norway.
The subsea transformer has also an integrated condition and monitoring system that is seamlessly integrated in the Siemens Energy subsea power control system and can easily be integrated with third party systems. This provides the operator with excellent transparency into the equipment and the status of its integrity, enabling optimization operation for enhanced performance and safety.
