ABB transformers help deliver power to the world’s highest airport

by swisscham in Engineering, Manufacturing

ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has delivered six Resibloc® dry-type transformers rated at 5,860 kilovolt amperes (kVA) to facilitate the distribution of power to the Daocheng-Yading airport in the Sichuan Province of China. When the airport opens later this year, travelers will land and depart at an elevation of 4,411 meters – 77 meters higher than the current record held by the Bamda airport. The Daocheng-Yading regional airport will make travel easier between western Chinese cities, for example, cutting the bumpy 13-hour bus ride from Chengdu to Daoyang to one hour. With a 4,200-meter runway and four tarmacs, the airport is expecting to handle around 500,000 passengers.
