Press release date: July 2, 2013

Expanding Australian air movement specialist Fanquip has successfully completed a fan refurbishment to more than 200 auxiliary transformers at the NSW Hunter Valley’s Eraring Power Station.

Won as a subcontracted supply agreement through The Downer Group, Fanquip was required to locate existing, aged fans and replace them with its heavy duty product as part of an integrated cooling system.

Fanquip installation specialists installed fans onto these auxiliary transformers to blow hot air across a pipe network containing cooling oils. The action of air movement being blown across the pipes cools the oil while it is being channelled through the transformers, preventing any over-heating of the system.

The main generators of this power plant reach very high temperatures, so it is up to the auxiliary transformers to maintain running efficiency of all the services ahead of operation.

Fanquip’s installation included the following:

PA Fans - primary air fans
ID Fans - induced draft fans
FD Fans - force draft fan for boiler
