On the project

The pilot aims to combine an ecomnomically sustainable, climate friendly alternative for SF6 with improved 420 kV/63 kA high voltage circuit breaker (HVCB) to create a solution for GIS HV SF6-free components. This solution will offer the potential towards a complete elimination of SF6 in electrical switchgears.

SF6 alternatives; green gas; switchgear; high voltage circuit breakers
