Now is the time to make the move to a safer, more sustainable future with SF6 free, eco gas insulated medium voltage switchgear.
The EU’s F-gas regulation, which outlines key dates for the prohibition of SF6 in medium voltage (MV) electrical equipment, including new installations of SF6 gas insulated switchgear (GIS), aims to reduce potent and harmful greenhouse gas emissions, including Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6), by two-thirds by 2030 compared to 2014 levels.
The 2022 proposal outlines important new proposed regulations designed to phase out the use of SF6 – an established but environmentally harmful insulating gas which is 25,200 times more potent than CO2. This has been made possible with the development of SF6 alternatives paving the way for this level of regulation, including pioneering products within ABB’s ecoGIS™ portfolio.
Drawing on the success of multiple SF6-free projects in the field since 2015 for 12 to 40.5 kV MV ecoGIS with reliable low-pressure design, this new whitepaper contains valuable information which engineers and specifiers need to know to make a success of their product selection, piloting, and specification shift.
