ROANOKE, Va — Virginia Transformer Corp. earned a contract to supply transformers to one of the largest data center operators in the world following a rigorous qualification process that has laid the groundwork for future opportunities between the two companies.

Data center operators have long relied on VTC to help ensure a reliable power supply to their projects, which is vital to operating. Data center operators also rely on VTC or its expertise in the handling of harmonics as well as long transformer life.

Over the past 12 months, VTC has earned supply contracts from nearly 20 of the largest data center operators in the world.  Virginia Transformer has been serving the data center market for more than 20 years, including the company’s Silver Star transformers. The company designs each transformer for the given specification and application presented by the customer. Various parameters of the design are optimized to produce the most efficient and cost-effective design. VTC's dry-type transformers are self-extinguishing and non-polluting. In addition, they feature a winding temperature monitor, reduced audible sound and vibration levels, vibration isolation, and a non-ventilated design for humid or particle-contaminated environments.

VTC has established the benchmark for insulation standards for dry-type transformers where the environment has corrosive, particle laden gasses, and high humidity. The dry-type designs are made to handle harmonics. Data Center applications are designed with special coil processing to deliver transformers of the highest reliability in the industry.
