Ganz makes transformers for Acciona Energía's renewable project

Manufacturing

Domestically owned Ganz Transformers and Electric Rotating Machines Ltd. has successfully participated in another significant international tender, manufacturing two 50 MVA and one 25 MVA transformers for Spain-based Acciona Energía with a total worth of over EUR 2 mln, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

Ganz won the public tender this May. The three transformers are expected to be delivered in March 2022 following successful Factory Acceptance Tests in November 2021.

The transformers have an operation voltage of 220/30 kV and are all mineral oil-cooled. Ganz was informed about the Acciona tender on the Tenders Electronic Daily (TED) interface and was able to participate in the tender with strict prerequisites. Following a complex evaluation process, the two companies finally signed a contract in May 2021. The decisive factor in the tender was the quality of the application and the short delivery time, both provided by Ganz.

Acciona Energía is one of the world's largest renewable energy companies, with more than 11 GW renewables installed in 16 countries. The company plans to build a photovoltaic power plant near Almendralejo in the province of Badajoz (Spain), for which the company announced the tender for the production of the three transformers.

According to the press release, the project is of key importance to Ganz, as the goal of the Hungarian company is to strengthen its position in the international market, especially in Europe. In addition to the Spanish Acciona Energía and the Danish Fjernvarme Fyn, the Hungarian heavy machinery manufacturer has been continuously manufacturing and successfully exporting custom equipment for customers in Romania, Belgium, Sweden, France, Germany, Ireland, and Saudi Arabia.

“The agreement with Acciona Energía is one of the biggest successes of Ganz since our 2020 relaunch, as it is an extremely well-known company in Spain and on a global scale. Both Acciona Energía and Ganz are committed to high quality, which is why the cooperation is significant for us,” said Tamás Enyedi, sales and project manager of Ganz Transformers and Electric Rotating Machines Ltd.

"The project is an outstanding part of the strategic goal, along which we want to boost the export activities of the company and to strengthen the international recognition of the Ganz brand," said Jan Prins, managing director of Ganz Transformer and Electric Rotating Machines Ltd.

The Dutch expert added, “The current collaboration is also special in the sense that we can deliver our unique and prime products to a giant company that is known worldwide for its sustainability approach. All of this is extremely important for us: through our machinery, we want to take an active part in the spread of renewable energy, thus contributing to the green turn of the energy economy.”
