John Van Kooy
John holds over 30 years of experience in the transformer industry. John provides transformer services to utility, industrial, and related business markets. He specializes in both “new” and “mature” transformer needs. When purchasing new transformers or rewinding failed equipment, he inspects, test witnesses, conducts shipping inspections, and provides maintenance recommendations. For existing equipment, John is able to assess transformer health by reviewing field test data such as dissolved gas in oil, standard oil tests, insulation resistance, dissipation/power factor data, furan analysis and degree of polymerization results.
With sick or failed transformers, John is able to provide independent third party expertise to assist in the often difficult repair/scrap/buy new/buy used decision. He also performs failure investigations on site anywhere in the world. Lastly, John offers transformer training seminars that provides general transformer knowledge and specific information on transformer maintenance.
John has worked at ABB in Guelph, Ontario; Westinghouse Canada Inc. in Burlington and Hamilton, Ontario, and Ontario Hydro in Toronto. John held positions in small and large power engineering, transformer and electrical design placements with managerial and marketing roles throughout his career.
