Understand the condition of your transformers
Given the high cost of replacement transformers - and the long delivery times involved – it is important for all organisations to be able to access essential operational data and gain a very clear view of the condition of their assets. The goals of condition monitoring are straightforward: extended component life, meaning reduced lifecycle costs; avoidance of dangerous or environmentally hazardous conditions; and avoidance of penalties by predicting and preventing equipment failures. But while online condition monitoring has great potential, collecting data is not an end in itself. The crucial factor is using the data for higher-level analysis. Siemens leverages the “power of data” by capturing, processing, and analysing the results: providing a sound basis for action, for both daily operations and long-term management of asset performance. We offer condition monitoring either as a stand-alone product or integrated into an entire monitoring system.
Peebles transformers: a proud heritage
Remember: the Transformers Service (TRS) business of Siemens’ Energy Management division is the ONLY genuine inheritor of the proud Peebles brand.
Although other businesses have adopted the Peebles name, Siemens acquired this historic business in 2005, when it took over VA Technologie AG (VA Tech). VA Tech had previously purchased both Reyrolle and the Peebles Transformer division from Rolls-Royce in 1998. Now, from our base in Hebburn, supported by manufacturing colleagues in Austria, we are able to service and support any installed Peebles transformer worldwide.

That is to say, there are things that we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we do not know we don't know.” (Donald Rumsfeld, US Secretary of Defense, 2002)

Don’t forget, Siemens does not just maintain its own installations and the extensive installed base of Peebles transformers (having acquired the prestigious and historic Peebles brand in 2005). Our engineers are qualified and experienced to maintain many other manufacturers’ equipment, too.
