Doble’s team of transformer experts to provide consulting services, technical support to Exelon engineers
January 4, 2011 – Watertown, MA, USA
Exelon Nuclear has awarded Doble Engineering Company a multi-year contract for transformer-related consulting services. Exelon, which operates the largest nuclear fleet in the United States and the third largest fleet in the world, is investing in the future of its nuclear energy facilities through a decade-long transformer replacement project.
As part of this proactive replacement project, Exelon Nuclear commissioned Doble’s team of transformer experts to oversee its transformer design review and witness the manufacturing and testing of its transformers; this includes the continuous monitoring of the construction process. In addition to the work on these new transformers, Doble will continue to support Exelon Nuclear at its various stations, providing testing, root cause analysis, and other technical support on an as-needed basis.
This new agreement was specifically tailored to Exelon’s transformer needs, a solution Doble could offer based on the strength of its team and the depth of the experience, knowledge and services it offers the electric power industry.
“There is nobody better equipped than Doble to provide large power transformer consulting services from cradle to grave,” says Richard K. Ladroga, Doble’s Vice President of Global Strategic Development. “We have carefully listened to the industry, assessed their needs, and responded by building a deep, solid team of world class experts.”
“By working with Doble, we can get a lot of expertise without having to worry about five or six different companies,” says Kirk Robbins, Exelon’s Corporate Lead Engineer for the replacement of main power transformers. “That gives us an advantage in terms of cost and knowing that the reports we receive come with Doble’s quality stamp on them.”
In addition to its transformer services, Doble’s expert consulting and testing division offers solutions for substations, rotating machinery and circuit breakers, including: engineering consultation, testing services, field support, forensics/root cause analysis, seminars and training events.
