ABB wins $40 million order for eco-efficient substation in

ABB has won an order of around $40 million from German transmission grid operator TransnetBW to upgrade a high-voltage substation in Obermooweiler, in the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. As an integral part of the upgrade, ABB will install the world’s first 380-kilovolt (kV) gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) which uses an environmentally friendly alternative gas mixture to the industry standard SF 6 .

By choosing SafeRing AirPlus instead of a conventional RMU more than 3 kg of insulating gas is avoided. This would have been equivalent to over 70 tons of CO2 emissions had the gas ever been released into the atmosphere. ABB offers gas-insulated and air-insulated switchgear for the distribution of electrical energy, both for primary and secondary distribution.

Why the EU should ban sf 6

What Is Sulfr hexafluoride? and How Is It used?Is sf6 gas A Danger to Human Health?How Environmentally Damaging Is It?Has The Environmental Impact Even Been Underestimated?Is The Mitigation of gaz sf6 Emissions Difficult? Do Better Solutions Exist?ConclusionSulfr hexafluoride is a long-lived, highly potent greenhouse gas. It is manmade and combines excellent electrical properties with chemical stability and low toxicity. Moreover, It’s non-flammable and low in cost. These characteristics have led to its widespread and enthusiastic adoption by the electrical industry, which uses approximately 80% of all gaz sf6produced (Powell, 2002: 6). Within the electrical industry gaz sf6is used as an insulating medium for medium (MV) and high (HV) voltage electrical switchgear. A switchgear is the combination of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect and isolate sections of electrical grids. Low-voltage (LV) switchgear are used for controlling electrical circuits within buildings, medium voltage (MV) switchgear for controlling the electrical grids within cities and towns, and high voltage (HV) switchgear for grids that span a greater geographical area such as countries and regions.
