FirstEnergy Corp.’s Perry nuclear plant is getting new backup transformers.

The first of three massive transformers, measuring 28 feet long, 14½ feet wide and 12 feet tall, arrived at the FirstEnergy-owned and operated nuclear power plant.

The transformer, which weighs 188,000 pounds, costs between $2 million and $3 million, including delivery, and was built in South Korea.

Two other transformers are being built in Korea for eventual shipment to the Perry plant.

This latest spare transformer is designed to convert 345,000 volts of electricity to 13,800 volts. It will serve as a backup to two transformers that are part of a system that provides offsite power to the plant; they are used to take in electricity from nearby high voltage lines and then run the power into the plant.
