Training will predominantly be provided to our customers with the ultimate objective to grow the “informed buyer” base in the Country. This initiative will be expanded to our key suppliers and service providers, further enhancing the value chain.” Powertech Transformers manufactures power and distribution transformers for Sub Saharan Africa at its operations in Pretoria West, Cape Town and Johannesburg. The Pretoria West facility is the biggest and most sophisticated transformer manufacturing plant in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the largest in the world. Powertech Transformers Pretoria manufactures 20MVA (mega volt ampere) to 800MVA transformers with a primary voltage up to 500kV (kilo volt).

The Johannesburg operation manufactures 100kVA (kilo volt ampere) to 20MVA transformers with a primary voltage up to 132kV. It also produces neutral earthing resistors, compensators, and NECRT combinations, as well as 100kVA to 3150kVA dry type transformers with a primary voltage up to 36kV. The Cape Town operation manufactures 16kVA to 1000kVA transformers with a primary voltage up to 36kV and 200kVA to 2500kVA miniature substations with a primary voltage up to 36kV.
