  • Energy Reps partners with PTI-Manitoba Transformer Plant

    Saskatchewan-based company, PTI Holdings Corporation, parent of PTI – Partner Technologies Incorporated acquired the Winnipeg transformer manufacturing operations, formerly owned by CG Power Systems Canada, Pauwels Canada and Federal Pioneer Limited. The acquisition doubles PTI’s capacity, increases product scope to include mobile substations and expands manufacturing capabilities to 600MVA and 525kV.

    The PTI Manitoba factory was built in 1945 and just one year later rolled out its first transformer. Currently the workforce numbers 200. The factory is located in the heart of Canada in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The plant was the first Canadian transformer plant to be certified to ISO 9001 and has retained its certification since 1993.

    Testing is carried out in a state-of-the-art test bay with the latest equipment. It was recently expanded and upgraded to accommodate three units at the same time.

    The PTI Mobile Substation product line emphasizes both operation flexibility and long term reliability making them suitable for a wide variety of custom applications. These can include:

    • Substation relief in the event of equipment failure
    • Supporting substation maintenance and repair activities
    • Emergency power supply in event of natural disasters
    • Supply to Isolated Areas & Mining activities
    • Stand by for peak load demands

    PTI strives to provide high quality products and services, treating every customer with courtesy and individualized care

    PTI’s Quality Assurance Program has been certified to ISO 9001:2008. Each employee strives toward quality within their department and contributes to plans, manuals and records. This way, knowledge can be shared to ensure customer satisfaction.

    Royal Switchgear - Seismic Letter of Notice, May 4th, 2015

    To our valued customers:

    This letter is to advise that Royal Switchgear has tested and passed IEEE 693 HIGH shaker-table testing for its vertical break switch

    Some exciting facts from testing:

    • The tested switch was a 230kV 3000A switch with 1050kV BIL insulators and grounding switch. TR-312 insulators were used to create a "worst case scenario" for testing.
    • By testing the "worst case" at 230kV, this enables Royal to be qualified in essentially every 230kV and 161kV seismic zone scenario.
    • This is the first shaker-table test ever performed using the 230kV PG&E vertical break support structure.
    • Royal can, if required, supply the switch and structure that were seismically qualified together.
    • The test was conducted at the University of Buffalo lab in New York with the supervision of W.E. Gundy & Associates, Inc. (WEGAI).
    • WEGAI is internationally known for exceptional analysis with focus in seismic qualification and design of electrical substation transmission and distribution equipment and building electrical-mechanical test equipment.
    • This is the tallest structure WEGAI has ever seen used for a 230kV shaker-table test.
    • Photo of the test is on the following page.
