Minimize Risks with Maximum Flexibility for Today and in the Future
Any kind of interruption could be a nightmare of today’s energy industry. The consequences of such events can be disastrous for the concerned companies as well as for all their customers.
In our webinar we want to demonstrate how utilities can benefit from the resiliency concept of Siemens Transformers that is based on three levels: PREVENT – PROTECT – REACT. PREVENTive measures help to minimize operational risks of transformers in operation, while the PROTECT-strategy focuses on sheltering newly ordered transformers and even transformers already in service. The REACT-strategy gives an option for restauration within the shortest timeframe possible with our unique Plug&Play mobile resiliency transformers– just in case all precautions fail.
Our resilience concept can be applied on your existing fleet and for new installations.
Tune in to learn about the right strategies to prevent your business from harm and secure grid resiliency and stability.
