  • SF6 Free Solution Switchgear Technology Options

    the considerable advantage of a much-reduced footprint compared to an AIS substation. However, traditional GIS installations utilise Sulfur Hexaflouride (SF6) as an insulator in both the switchgear bay and the circuit breaker. This results in higher volumes of SF6 than an AIS solution. In this respect a solution fully utilising SF6 would not fully
