Transformer Components are real game-changers in the journey toward a sustainable energy future for all!

We’re excited to celebrate the First Edition of Transformer Components Days held in Ludvika, Sweden, on 20th and 21st March 2024.

This pioneering global event marked the first of its kind and covered the entire portfolio of transformer components under one supplier. We proudly offer the world’s broadest portfolio of transformer components, prioritizing safety, reliability, and availability to serve our customers.

During this event, our customers were able to engage directly with our experts in each sector, explore emerging technological trends, and future investments, and learn how to optimize and securely extend the complete transformer life cycle. More than a celebration of technical innovations, this was an immersive experience featuring success stories from the industry, live workshops, and a deep dive into these new trends that commit us to co-create solutions to ensure a sustainable energy transition.

From among all our factories located in 9 different countries around the globe, we embarked on this new journey with our customers in Ludvika. Over the past 120 years, the city has upheld its status as a 'jewel in the crown' of our business, fostering a rich legacy of innovation and spearheading pioneering technologies that have shaped the world.

This rich heritage has not only paved the way for our pioneering and most reliable transformer technology but has also encouraged the development of transformer components such as bushings and tap changers. Ludvika’s legacy serves as the perfect backdrop for commemorating the first edition of this exceptional event, an ode to our journey of technological excellence. A big thanks to the Ludvika team!

All of this would not have been possible without the attendance of our customers, who have made the success of this event possible. Over 70 customers from 19 different nationalities across Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. In particular, we would like to express our gratitude to Simone Sacco from Terna Italia and Günter Linortner from Siemens Energy Weiz for their participation in the Voice of the Customer. Their insights into their commitment to the sustainable development of the grid and the potential benefits and challenges they present have been invaluable.

The event included factory tours of our bushing and tap changer facilities, offering a firsthand experience of our team's quality, professionalism, and the latest enhancements in the production process. Other highlights encompassed live workshops focusing on tap changer improvements, solutions for bushings, and the digital platform Txpert, providing visitors with insights into the latest innovations in Insulation and Components and T-Sync Tap Changers. Our experts engaged with participants, aiding them in selecting tailored solutions from our pioneering portfolio to address challenges throughout the lifecycle.

Hitachi Energy Transformer Components is committed to leading the charge in innovative, sustainable, and reliable transformer technologies, catering to the evolving needs of the energy landscape.

“I express my sincere gratitude to all who have joined and shared with us this fantastic experience. Let’s continue the journey together on innovation and co-creation towards advancing a sustainable future for all,” said Bockshammer at the event closing.
