Transforming Mexico’s new airport

Motor, drive and gearbox manufacturer WEG is to supply 241 transformers to the International Airport Felipe Ángeles, in the state of Mexico. The construction is a key part of the goal to reduce the high saturation of the current Mexico City International Airport. 

The project, which will be partially operating in the first quarter of 2021, will allow 20 million passengers per year, to travel through the airport. The project also includes the expansion of the existing runway, along with the addition of a new runway. 

WEG will supply 241 transformers, which include 49 dry transformers from 300 to 3150 kVA, 168 pedestal transformers from 30 to 2500 kVA, 21 dielectric varnish dry transformers from 30 to 300kVA and 3 power transformers from 60 MVA 230kV. Manufactured at the WEG Mexico plant, the transformers are designed for an operating altitude of 2500 meters above sea level.
