245 transformers for New Jeddah International Airport

245 transformers for New Jeddah International Airport


The customer is Jeddah International Airport in Saudi Arabia.


The customer approached Ortea in order to avoid potential disturbances on its airport electrical system, making specific demands also on the design of the required solution.


In order to galvanically isolate the system to prevent the propagation of harmonic disturbances in the network, reduce short circuit current and create a local neutral, Ortea supplied a pipeline of 245 isolation transformers.
The power ratings of the supplied products range from 60 to 800kVA, with 400/400V voltage, Dyn11 connection, K-factor 4 and IP21 degree of protection.
At the customer’s specific request, the transformers were designed with cable entry from above, an input switch and earthquake-proof feet.
The large order, including special requests, was fulfilled by Ortea, which once again demonstrated its reliability and flexibility in the production of even non-standard machines.
