Powerstar forms transformer partnership with Thorne & Derrick


Powerstar, a UK manufacturer of smart energy solutions, has announced a new partnership with Thorne & Derrick International to help bolster its smart transformers offering for energy-conscious businesses.

The partnership is intended to facilitate knowledge sharing between the two companies and enable them to collaboratively promote the range of fit-for-purpose solutions and services available to I&C customers, such as the Powerstar SO-LO transformer.

The SO-LO helps to reduce energy costs by maximising efficiencies on the high voltage (HV) side with a super low loss amorphous core. Additionally, the remote monitoring functionality, which brings distribution transformers in line with the modern expectations of connected technology, allows constant monitoring of the asset’s performance, helping to avoid critical errors and avoid operational downtime.

Dr. Alex Mardapittas, CEO at Powerstar, commented: “We are proud to partner with the renowned HV specialist Thorne & Derrick. The partnership will heighten the visibility of smart transformers and enable a wide variety of organisations to learn how they can modernise their HV infrastructure.”
