GBE: A dynamic and efficient enterprise
GBE SpA is an Italian company specialising in the production of:
Cast Resin and VPI Transformers from a few kVA to 30MVA, in all voltage classes up to 52kV (BIL 250KV)
Oil Filled Transformers from 50kVA to 50MVA, 145kV (650kV BIL)
Air Insulated, Resin and Oil Reactors, with and without magnetic core from a small kVAr value up to 10 MVAr
Transformers with amorphous core from 100kVA up to 2500kVA.
The company is based in the Vicenza province and can boast 25 years of technical experience in the field. Production is carried out over three factories with a total covered area of 14,000 square meters within the same industrial area, for a total area of about 33,000 square meters.
The three plants have enabled specialisation in both Cast Resin and Oil Immersed Transformers. GBE is also equipped with its own Steelworks facility for the production of profiles, core clamp, chassis, oil transformer tanks, protection box and all the necessary equipment to manufacture customised products according to specific customer requirements.
Every aspect of manufacturing is performed internally: design, testing, production and acceptance tests. GBE relies on state of the art machinery and production equipment, with automated production processes and production management in real time by coding each material. GBE has also three-test rooms for different types of products, with all certified equipment to perform routine tests, type tests and special tests.
Our experience, continual research, development and flexibility of the internal organisation allows GBE to respond to various requests, even for special units such as transformers for conversion (6-12-18-24-36 pulse), transformers for marine application, auto-transformers, transformers for solar systems, earthing transformers, three-winding transformers, MV/ MV, three-single phase transformers, Scott type transformers, traction motors. Furthermore, GBE design and manufacture core or coreless reactors, for all applications like short circuit, filter, decoupling, smoothing, compensation, limiting etc.
GBE operates directly to both domestic and international markets. GBE has been a market leader for many years in all EU countries, South America, Australia and Asia with the excellent results; the company is increasingly projected in markets around the world, with attention given to new emerging countries.
