It was a busy and successful couple of days for Trojan at the IEEE PES T&D conference in New Orleans this week. Besides being able to catch up with many of agents face to face, we explored a number of new business opportunities with both existing and new customers.

There was a great feeling of excitement from all of the attendees about the ability to reengage with customers face to face after so little personal contact over the past couple of years.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Drew Welton and intellirent for hosting us out their booth. It was a great few days with your team and we look forward to continuing to work together

IEEE Conference & Exposition

With the borders finally opening, Nathan Cropp is very excited to be able to attend the 2022 IEEE Conference & Exposition in New Orleans from the 25th – 27th of April.

Nathan will be spending time at the Intellirent stand (#4151). Intellirent provide rental options for our equipment across North America. 

He will also be meeting with many of our North American Agents and their customers who are also attending.

We’re looking forward to meeting our North American customers in person again, passing on our knowledge and experience, and working with them to provide oil handling and filtration solutions to suit their specific requirements.

Something a little bit different

Posted by Abbey Johnston

Athletics Equipment

Quite often, we are asked to manufacture something a little bit different.

As part of our services, we have the ability to provide custom engineered solutions to our customers.

Trojan recently got asked by Athletics New Zealand, to manufacture a specified piece of equipment for measuring the height of an athletics shoe, ensuring it is in line with the world athletics rulings.

The team here at Trojan put their thinking caps on, and they were able to come up with a design that fulfilled the customer needs.

We turned this into a competition for our followers on social media. We asked them to try and guess what we had made for Athletics New Zealand. Our winner was Josh who came all the way from the UK, who won a $50.00 Amazon voucher.

Back in 2006, this earlier model was purchased by a North Island, New Zealand distribution Utility. During that time, Operators have come & gone, so we were asked to come by and provide a quick refresher to the crew who are taking over.

The North Island put on grand weather; we passed on our knowledge to the crew; and this TDOS 1000 will now continue to work its way around their network, maintaining low levels of moisture across their entire transformer fleet.

 

Trojan LTCF off to the USA

Posted by Nathan Cropp

One of the first systems out the door after returning from COVID-19 lockdown was this Trojan LTCF (Load Tap Changer Filter) for a community owned Utility in the US Midwest.

The Supervisor and his crew required a portable system that they can use on energised or de-energised equipment to remove carbon, particulate and moisture from their LTC’s, circuit breakers and main switches.

POD's to Asia

POD Transformer

Permanent online moisture management is becoming more common as a greater number of transformer owners take steps to keep the moisture content in the insulation at low levels right from the commissioning of the transformer.

This has proven benefits both in terms of operational life of the transformer, and ongoing maintenance requirements.

Welcome Michael

Trojan Team Member Electrician

We’d like to welcome Michael to the team at Trojan.

Michael started with us a few weeks back as an electrician / fitter. In a Company like ours, this is a pretty broad role – and no doubt one of the reasons we had so many high quality candidates apply.

Besides working on the electrical side of manufacture our systems, Michael’s role will encompass a mechanical fitting element as he prepares the units for testing and dispatch.  

The opportunity to work across a number of different areas and broaden his skill set were major attractions for Michael.

In the short time he’s been part of the team his eye for detail and finishing quality have really shown through.

Being from England, we also appreciated him not giving us Kiwi’s too much grief after his countrymen knocked the All Blacks out of the Rugby World Cup.

Welcome Michael.

Trojan Online Vacuum System

When drying out energised transformers, some customers prefer a vacuum based approach over an adsorbent system.

Factors such as oil temperature may dictate which option suits best. Considering the impact on the DGA profile is also important, but in the end,  both provide highly effective alternatives.
