Elimsan Captured South America Market

  • January 17, 2018

South American countries with ample energy sources nationalize the private sector companies as a result of socialist government structure. The improvements that began recently allows South American countries for gaining economic strength and restructuring. Continuous energy transmission and distribution to newly constructed cities and industrial zones are a priority. For this reason, countries prefer Elimsan products.

High Level of Safety in Mines

Elimsan entered the South America market in January 2016 with the export of highly secure 24kV TG21 Series Metal Enclosed Switchgears. This product was chosen to be used for the energy distribution system of CODELCO Mining CIA Ore Mining project which will have 2 million tons of reserves once completed. Guaranteeing energy and generation continuity, our switchgears enable cost saving thanks to adjustable dimensions and technical features. TG21 Series Elimsan Switchgears are also preferred in Minera Pucobre, Minera Pelambres and ABB-Observ Las Campanas projects developed in Chile.

On May 2016, following Chile, one leading mining company named Raura in Peru again decided to engage Elimsan products for a big scale mining project. We sent 24kV TG21 Series Base Compartments with Surge Arrester and Vacuum Breaker Voltage Transformers to Peru. The product also took part in the energy distribution system of a shopping mall project.


Elimsan Switchboards were Issued a Certificate of Competence by the Columbian Ministry of Energy!

In Columbia, where we step forward with our product quality and reliability, our 17, 5kV, 24kV, 36kV Metal Clad, Metal Enclosed Switchgears and 36kV RMU Switchgears were issued a Certificate of Competence by the Ministry of Energy which is responsible for the technical regulations of electrical installations. This strengthened our market position in South America even further. Elimsan Current and Voltage Measurement Transformers which were imported to Columbia in April 2016 provided solutions to different projects. Assuring safety and system protection, plus minimizing the cost due to energy loss by precise measuring are some of the leading features of our Measurement Transformers.

A Global Giant on Renewable Energy Generation Went for Elimsan

It was November 2016 when our products got into the Paraguay market for the first time. Trafosur Company decided to use our 24kV TG21 Series Modular Switchgears in one of their projects. Our products also took part in the projects of Binacional Itaipu; a global giant on renewable energy generation and also in Minister De Hacienda project. Paraguay Electricity Administration ANDE Mobile Transformer Center – Entidad Binacional Yacyreta and Substation “Fram” projects are other examples in which Elimsan 24kV EMC Series Elimsan Metal Clad Switchgears got into use. Equipped with latest technology, our switchgears stand out with their high safety and continuous energy supply during both failure and maintenance.

On July 2017, Ecuador started to use 12kV 630A Elimsan TG21 Series SF6 Gas Circuit Breaker, Gas Insulated Load Breaker, Breaker and Transformer Protected, SF6 Gas Insulated Metal Enclosed Switchgears and 24kV, 25kA Elimsan EMC 24 Series Busbar Type Vacuum Breaker Metal Clad Switchgears in their projects. Argentina also joined other countries on November and decided on 36kV, 630A Elimsan TG21 Series SF6 Gas Circuit Breakers, Gas Insulated Load Breakers, Breaker and Transformer Protected Modular Switchgears.

Globalizing and developing technologies increase our enthusiasm and passion to do better with higher quality. Certificates issued by leading laboratories such as KEMA and CESI makes our transformer or breaker components a favorite for MV Switchboard producers, and Switchgear technologies along with our High Voltage Disconnectors a global choice. As Elimsan family, we continue to work hard with a focus on your needs while always striving for more.
