ABB has successfully completed testing on the world’s largest vegetable oil-filled power transformer at its Cordoba, Spain plant.

According to the local news website Cordopolis, ABB has modified a 400 MVA, 420 kV transformer with oil-derived insulation oil, changing it to one filled with vegetable oil.

“This project is completely aligned with our vision of making new and existing transformers safer and more environmentally friendly without compromising performance,” said Markus Heimbach, ABB’s Transformer Business Manager.
