Contact an Expert Back To Gas-Insulated Switchgear (GIS) for Primary Distribution


Gas-Insulated metal-enclosed switchgear up to 36 kV 2500A/40kA
  • Presentation

    Each switchboard is made up of several interconnected functional units:

    > busbar compartment
    > gas compartment for busbar system,
    > gas compartment for circuit breaker,
    > power cable compartment,
    > low voltage control cabinet


    • Technology: gas (SF6)
    • Standard: IEC
    • Rated voltage (kV): 36 kV
    • Busbar system: single or double
    • Rated normal current (A):
      . Busbar system: max 2500 A
      . Incoming/outgoing: max 2500A
      . Short-circuit breaking current (kA): 40 kA
      . Internal arc classification: AFL, AFLR ; 40 kA/0.5s
      . Standard degrees of protection: IP-65 for HV compartment. IP-3X for LV cabinet (IP-4X on request)

  • Benefits

    • Availability of electrical energy
      Designed for high performance based on the principle of metal-enclosed switchgear, enclosed single or double busbars, MV compartment with gas-insulated circuit-breaker, LV cabinet with Sepam protection relay
    • Safety of life and property 
      Very high degree of protection for life and property, gas-insulated metal-enclosed switchgear, sealed for life, interlocking of controls, totally reliable mechanical position indicators (open/closed), protection and supervision with relays, internal arcing withstand
    • Optimised investment
      Saving space, small footprint, saving time with reduced maintenance, no need to stop operations with double busbar version.
    • Saving the planet
      ISO 14001 certification of production sites, designed using EIME software (environmental information & management explorer), cubicles are 96 % recyclable at the end of service life
  • Applications

    Specially designed for HV/MV and MV/MV substations

    • For Industry, electric utilities or infrastructure markets: auxiliary substations, wind farms, oil & Gas, chemical industry, metallurgy, car industry, mining, cement plants, cogenerations, airports, ports, hospitals, water treatment, traction substations
