Winder Power has been a supply partner to water utilities, including Yorkshire Water, for a number of years, responsible for carrying out maintenance on its 11kV network. Thames Water has also placed an 8 year term contract with Winder Power for the supply of transformers up to 8MVA and the company has undertaken several projects with many of the “tier one” suppliers contracted to the UK’s water utilities.



Winder Power has worked on several transformer projects in the retail sector with both Tesco and Sainsburys. The ability to meet tight deadlines was paramount to securing these retail contracts to minimise store disruption. Winder Power was also chosen to supply the transformers for the prestigious Leadenhall development in London.

The rise in renewable energy via wind farms, solar, biomass and hydro has resulted in the need for transformers to connect to the grid. Winder Power has worked on wind farms throughout the UK and recently installed a 24/30MVA at Withernwick which connected the 33kV turbines to the 66kV grid. Winder Power has also provided smaller auxiliary transformers to SSE for connection of Hydro schemes in Scotland.
