 SIEMENS Pretact™
design of a mobile emergency transformer

 #IndustrialDesign

Pretact™ is a mobile emergency transformer, that can be deployed within 24h in case of a sudden black out caused by the failure of a substation transformer. The product features numerous innovative features (p.e. “Plug & Play”-bushings for rapid cable connection) allowing sudden emergency deployment with a standard semi truck.

HYVE has developed the Pretact™-Design together with SIEMENS within a long-term design cooperation involving the input of transformer experts from SIEMENS and SIEMENS’ clients in the field of energy management. The result of the this cooperation was the designline “Pretact™ Frame” for the mobile emergeny transformer.

The results were presented on 2016’ Hannover Traid Fair (HMI) with a strong positive feedback. The next steps of the cooperation between SIEMENS and HYVE will involve the further development of the Pretact™ design language and their translation to the rest of the SIEMENS transformer portfolio.
