Dry-type transformers are typically selected for steel vessels but are now virtually required for mobile vessels and platforms looking for American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) classification. A recent ruling by the ABS and renewed enforcement will require the use of dry-type transformers in areas not exposed to the marine environment. In this article, the pertinent publications and rulings as well as standards will be reviewed. This change will affect studies and specifications for all future projects seeking ABS classification.
