Third project in a row: further formwork solution for system manufacturer of transformer substations

The trend towards electric mobility holds further growth potential for the precast concrete sector. The necessary expansion of the grid infrastructure results in an increasing demand for transformers to convert the supplied medium voltage into low voltage that can be used by end con-sumers and industry. In Germany, a signi´Čücant proportion of transformer stations, unless installed in buildings, is realized as a precast concrete station.

For a variant of these transformer stations, the non-accessible compact substation, RATEC developed a formwork solution initiated by customer requirements several years ago. 

In 2018, Ratec delivered the newly developed formwork for the ´Čürst time to a plant of German utility and transformer sta-tion producer Scheidt GmbH & Co. KG. The following year, Ratec was awarded a follow-up contract to supply another site with its formwork. Finally, a third formwork has been installed in the summer of 2020.
