We can start with receiving inspection at the rail siding, port of entry, substation site or wherever the unit is located, and then assemble all parts that were removed for shipment to make the transformer operational. If the unit was shipped oil-filled and it is necessary to lower the oil level to install bushings or other parts, Waukesha® Service can get it done.

Using your specifications, the transformer supplier’s specifications or ours, Waukesha Service can vacuum degasify and prepare new oil for installation, pull vacuum on the transformer and professionally complete the vacuum oil-filling process.
