Smit - The Power Of Manufacturing

1 02 Back in time: The rise of power stations 08 Nothing as sustainable as a transformer 13 When transformers have to whisper 14 Sharing expertise at an international level 23 Under the spell of the transformer 24 CSR: More than just a social function 28 Train people at an early age A varied field High-voltage technology is a remarkably varied field, about which many fascinating remarks can be made. That’s why we were so enthusiastic when asked to help create a branch magazine for our sector. Royal SMIT Transformers B.V. is a transformer manufacturer We have a great deal of experience with innovations in the field of high-voltage applications, innovations that we initiate ourselves or develop further. But we're also keen to contribute to developments that affect our field directly or indirectly, for example in relation to transport, the environment, sustainability, and education. This involves working with companies or organisations that are specialists in their own right. Well-known educational institutions (ROCs, polytechnics and universities) for instance, or specialists in transport and logistics. We desperately need fresh young talent in the world of electrotechnology and power transformers. We give young technicians a chance to get to know both our company and the industry through challenging traineeships or graduation projects. It was quite a challenge to choose from the interesting topics available to us, but the result speaks for itself: an industrial magazine that not only introduces you to our vision of the industry, but also gives different experts in our field a chance to voice their thoughts. I hope you enjoy reading this magazine and look forward to meeting you. Ernst Knoll, CEO Royal SMIT Transformers B.V. with a long history. 02 08 12 28 22 CONTENT:
