Bowers Electricals to showcase one of the most efficient transformers every built

One of the UK’s biggest transformer manufacturers, Bowers Electricals, will showcase its super-efficient new product range at Emex.

The award-winning firm specialises in the design and engineering of energy efficient power and distribution transformers and will have one of its new Eco BEST products on stand D41 at the energy management exhibition, which takes place from November 11-12.

The new unit, which is based on Bowers’ top-selling BEST range, is fully-compliant with new EU legislation on transformer efficiency and in many cases exceeds the energy savings that the new rules require – reducing customers’ bills as well as their carbon footprints.

Since its beginnings nearly 70 years ago, as an electric motor and transformer rewinding business, Derbyshire-based Bowers Electricals has grown to be a leading authority on energy-efficient transformers, as well as specialising in refurbished equipment and HV and LV switchgear.

Bowers’ experience in the sector has seen the company work in an advisory capacity with the national and European standards bodies responsible for producing the new harmonised transformer standards that came into force this year. With managing director Michael Bowers at the helm, the team is also working as a member of BEAMA to advise the Government’s National Measurement and Regulation Office (NMRO) on how to assess the efficiency of transformers that fall under the EcoDesign directive.

“Even back in 1947, when the company was founded, we’ve always prided ourselves on being at the forefront of new technology,” explains Michael. “A lot of our time and money is invested in developing new methods and materials that can achieve the highest possible savings. Our new EcoDesign range was created in conjunction with the standards bodies who came up with the new rules regarding transformer losses and, with a Bowers BEST core at the heart of the new range, we’re excited to be in a position to showcase at Emex what we think may be one of the most efficient transformers in the world.”
