Inaugurated in 2011, Voltamp Power's world-class manufacturing facility is one of its kinds in the region. It manufactures a complete range of pole mounted to the Extra High Voltage power transformers upto 500 MVA and 220 kV class. With the unique proposition of 'European quality at local prices and local service backup', Voltamp has reduced the reliance on imported transformers to a great extent in the MENA region. Located at Sohar Industrial Area, adjacent to Sohar Industrial Port, the plant offers a quick connectivity to markets in the region to reduce delivery cost and time for the clients. A dedicated team of Voltamp engineers provides complete service during the installation and commissioning phases.
The technology for the plant is being provided by well reputed Tatung, Taiwan. The plant's machinery and equipment have been sourced from globally renowned companies such as HAEFELY, Switzerland; DELU, Germany; HIPOTRONICS, USA; SANMI Corporation, Japan and LOOTAH LEMMENS, Germany. The super flat floor has been provided by Sika AG, Sweden.
The plant has the capacity to produce total 6,500 MVA per year. It is equipped to conduct routine, type and special tests in accordance with IEC 60076/ANSI (C-57-12-90) standard's requirement. The power transformers manufactured by Voltamp are made under stringent quality control in compliance with ISO 9001 standards. The facility could be seamlessly upgraded to 400kV class in future with minimal investment, another path-breaking development in the MENA region. The company has installed powerful and highly sophisticated software tools to design and develop the power transformers. The deployment of these advanced tools ensures optimum electrical & mechanical efficiency besides determining eddy current losses and short circuit forces accurately. The 3-D modeling software facilitates the viewing of virtual prototypes of transformers including active parts and electrical clearances.
