How long approx. is the lifetime for any transformer unit after product and normal operation?

The financial department at my company asked me about the lifetime for electrical transformer, they need it as documents from products supplier to use it at financial analysis.

ABB's answer

30 years for a standard transformer and 22 years for a generator step-up unit. Both responses require that normal maintenance is performed, the unit is loaded according to nameplate, and the unit is not exposed to system anomalies such as, but not limited to, short circuits, transients, harmonics.
