Pocatello Plant Makes History With Its Largest Autotransformer Ever

News

Date : September 24, 2021 | Author : vtc

We are proud to announce that we have completed the manufacturing and final assembly testing (passed on first attempt) of the largest autotransformer ever in the history of our Pocatello plant, located in Pocatello, ID.
The 168 MVA, 161/69/13.2 KV, 750/350/150 KV BIL, 55/65°C rise 3-phase autotransformer was built for the Paris Board of Public Utilities for its Eagle Creek Substation.
According to the customer’s website, the completion of the new substation will provide a redundant feed from TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) and a second delivery point to aid in having a loop transmission feed for parts of Henry County resulting in increased reliability for its customers.

Virginia Transformer Corp would like to thank the Paris Board of Public Utilities for partnering with us on this project and to congratulate the teams on both sides for a job well done!

VTC 50th Anniversary Press Release

News

Date : July 15, 2021 | Author : Ben Nicely

Major Player in U.S. Electrical Power Industry Celebrates Half Century of Service

Virginia manufacturer sees market leadership, global impact add to its success

 Roanoke, Va. (June 23, 2021) – In its 50-year history, Roanoke-based Virginia Transformer Corporation (VTC) has gone from producing small power transformers to become the largest United States-based power transformer OEM with the largest engineering team in the industry – a 1,500-person team – and five plants in North America. Its customers have included Fortune 500 companies such as Tesla, Chevron, Duke Energy, Edison International, and Siemens.

 In recognition of a half century of service and looking ahead toward the next 50 years, CEO Prabhat Jain announced two new corporate initiatives created to attract and retain top workforce talent as the company strives for continued growth.

  •  An employee financial aid fund to support workers experiencing temporary unexpected hardship such as illness.
  • A scholarship award for children of VTC employees to award funds for up to four years of college education.

 “As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, I want to reflect back on the last 50 years and recognize how we have traversed obstacles and reached industry-leading milestones,” said CEO Prabhat K. Jain. “In my 39 years as CEO here, I’ve realized that it’s the people, the focus on the customer, and the technology that brings us continued success, and I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished.”

 An American-owned, Minority Business Enterprise, Virginia Transformer Corporation has leveraged the technical background of its leaders and engineers, giving them the agility to react faster to changing market demands and to the needs of customers and employees. At 50 years, VTC has powered the U.S. and the world, providing transformers to the likes of Walt Disney, FermiLab, Washington Metro, and NASA. In 2003, VTC came to the aid of the Army Corps of Engineers by designing, building, and shipping six 15-MVA transformers in just six weeks for the Gulf War rebuilding projects.  

 “Going forward, transformers will continue to be at the heart and soul of transforming energy from sources of creation to sources of consumption,” said President Anoop Nanda. “The United States’ aging energy infrastructure requires many assets to be replaced to enhance grid reliability and security, and Virginia Transformer is a key player in getting that done with 50 years of expertise and innovation.”

 By 1982, when Mr. Jain joined the company as President, VTC was mired in debt and still a minor player in the industry. “I came with one expectation – to lead a business,” Jain said. Under Jain’s leadership, VTC began to broaden and diversify its customer base and product line, developing new technologies and delivering high-reliability transformers with a 60-year service life – the longest in the industry, eventually becoming the market leader that it is today.

 About Virginia Transformer Corporation

 Virginia Transformer Corporation is the largest U.S.-based power transformer OEM and provides custom-engineered power transformers for utility, renewable energy, industrial, mining, oil and gas, commercial, institutional, specialty, and export markets. Products range in power from 500-kVA to 1400-MVA and up to 525 kV. Its goal is to deliver the perfect transformer for any application.

Utility Success Story

UTILITIES NEWS

Date : October 6, 2017 | Author : vtc

The Western region of the Public Power Utilities team had a great 3rd quarter 2017. The main contributor to this success was City of Vernon in CA who awarded VT-GT with a prestigious contract to supply four (4) 66/16.34 kV, 33.6//56 MVA unit Load Tap Changers to Vernon’s Leonis SS upgrades.  The best part of the deal is that VT-GT was L5 after evaluation of Total Ownership Cost with not only Far East competition like Pan America & Iljin but North American companies like WEG & CG lower than us, however VT-GT was preferred over these bidders.

The entire credit of winning this contract in the most competitive environment goes to the prior experience & relationship we shared with Vernon and with our Southern CA rep Richard Salemme – McAvoy & Markham playing an instrumental role. Richard & Sunny Xavier started early in the game (a couple of months before the bids hit the street) to help the engineers at Vernon with budget prices & develop the specifications with several conference calls & follow ups. A total of 12 bidders from Far East & North America participated in the bid & VT-GT emerged as the winner.

The most reliable large power transformers made in the USA

News

Date : March 31, 2017 | Author : vtc

Did you know that you don’t have to cross the ocean to buy a large power transformer? We make those right here, in Rincon, GA.

We recently shipped a 168MVA 230kV Autotransformer to the City of Ocala, FL.  We also shipped another 100MVA 135kV Auto to Algonquin Power in Canada. These transformers are made by GTC owned by Caravels, LLC, a VTC family company.  The GTC plant is in Rincon, GA, USA and it was built by Efacec of Portugal in 2008 for the production of core and shell type transformers with ratings up to 1400MVA 500kV.  This technology is now owned by Caravels, LLC

Since the acquisition of the Rincon plant, we have reinforced the engineering staff.  Rogelio Martinez now heads the engineering group that has over 100 years of combined experience in designing extra high voltage large power transformers. Rogelio himself comes with outstanding EHV transformer design experience gained at Prolec, VA Tech and Siemens.

Please consider us for your next Large Power application. Of course, you can continue to count on us for your small and medium power transformer requirements.

 What they’re saying

“We’ve used Virginia Transformer for many years, they’ve been great to work with.”
