Creating Connections Through Technical Expertise

EDF Energy came to Shell for transformer oil advice having had two new transformers installed at their nuclear power plant in the UK.

The plant supplies power to 2 million homes and so the team required a transformer oil that would provide long-term reliability, especially given that a failing transformer would cause the entire site to shut down.

With the transmission and distribution sector naturally conservative when integrating new products, Shell approached EDF with not only an innovative transformer oil, Shell Diala S4 ZX-I, but also the technical support to ensure it was the right fit for the job at hand.
