just to explain:
this is/was one of the main transformers in the nuclear power plant krümmel near hamburg. one suggest, that it was overloaded due to a shortcut and therefore a shutdown of the nuclear power plant brunsbüttel nearby. if more informations are availible, i will post it here

regards

Herrmann

SHORTCUT or SHORT CIRCUIT?

AFIK, the only way a short circuit could take down an adjacent plant is if the output of the smoking transformer took out an entire switchyard, including the buss tie to the other plant's output.

I would be very interested in finding out what happened.

Looks like the FD is using water with a fome mixture to deplete the fire of oxagen which I can understand but I thought you were suppose to use dry chemicle on electrical fires.

Actually the foam is to suppress the oil fire that generally results from a major transformer fire. Most of the really large transformers are oil filled to help with cooling.

It is only an electrical fire until the power is off.

Short Circuit of course, sorry it was my translation failure. To be a little more exact, it was a short circuit in the switchyard which causes the power plant brunsbüttel to do an emergency shutdown.
