(PTTI), having approximately 33,000 MVA of production capacity per year. Below them is another American firm, Virginia Transformer, with 30,000 MVA per year. The data is obtained by summing up the manufacturing capacities of all factories of a particular company located in North America.
The companies in the other 7 positions, including their transformer manufacturing capacity per year, are shown at the graph above. The database provided by Fygen covers all power transformer factories worldwide for transformers > 1 MVA and is updated on a monthly basis. The tool is the one-stop solution for those who are selling raw materials to transformer manufacturers. It provides a complete and up to date overview of the market, which enables you to make perfect business and investment decisions.
For each factory, the following categories are provided: Country, Region, Size (SPT, MPT, LPT), Factory, Address, Types, Capacity up to (MVA), Voltage up to (kV), Annual production capacity (MVA), Annual GOES consumption, Quality standards, Updates and developments of the factory. It is possible to filter the factories by transformer size (SPT, MPT, LPT) and country.
