ABB Power - SafePlus 36 MV secondary switchgear

ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has received a notice of conformity (NOC certificate 1118) from the Electricity Networks Association (ENA) to TS 41-36, Issue 3 and Engineering Recommendation G79 Parts 1 and 2a, for the use of its state of the art SafePlus 36 kV 20KA secondary switchgear on UK utility networks.

SafePlus is a compact, metal enclosed SF6-insulated medium voltage (MV) switchgear system for secondary distribution applications up to 36 kV. The switchgear has a unique flexibility due to its extendibility and the possible combination of fully modular and semi-modular configurations.

Typical applications for SafePlus switchgear include: compact secondary substations (CSS), light industry, wind and solar farms, buildings, generation, mining, airports, and railways Dave Knapper, General Manager of ABB Medium Voltage Products in the UK said:

"Receiving the ENA notice of conformance for our SafePlus 36 kV switchgear is the culmination of an extensive approval process. The compact flexible design of SafePlus has established it as a leader in markets across the world, and now with the ENA approval we are set to open up the UK market."
