First F- gas-free NXPLUS C 24 circuit- swell panel from Siemens goes into operation

In cooperation with Siemens Smart Structure,E.ON attachment Westnetz, one of Germany’s largest distribution grid drivers, has expanded its Bekond substation in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate with a fluorine gas-free NXPLUS C 24 circuit- swell panel. It’s the first panel of its type in the world to go into operation using Clean Air, the climate-neutral sequestration gas. This installation demonstrates the functionality of fluorine gas-free results in grid operations and shows an easy way to extend being technology with the rearmost environmentally friendly technology.

Trial phases by grid drivers are pivotal previous to large-scale deployments of fluorine gas-free medium-voltage switchgear. “ Until now, sulfur hexafluoride, or SF 6 for short, has been used in numerous medium-voltage switchgear. This gas has excellent separating and extinguishing parcels, but it can be dangerous to the terrain if it leaks from the switchgear,” said Stefan Küppers, Chief Technology Officer of Westenergie AG and formerly Managing Director for Special Technology and Digitalization at the wholly possessed attachment Westnetz GmbH. “ For this reason, we ’re intensely looking for new specialized results that combine high position of security of energy force with climate-neutral technology. Together with Siemens AG, we want to test the new Clean Air technology and gather functional experience. This is an important step towards a climate-neutral future.”
“ What particularly excites us as a company about the new Siemens NXPLUS C 24 product is its comity with the being SF 6 switchgear and its proven design and operating conception,” said Bastian Wölke, specialized product director for medium-voltage switchgear and systems at Westnetz GmbH.
“ Our fluorine- gas-free switchgear enables our guests to achieve sustainable, safe and cost-effective operation,” said Stephan May, CEO of the Distribution Systems Business Unit at Siemens Smart Structure. “ Our installed base of further than NXPLUS C units can be expanded with the rearmost climate-neutral technology. The confines and operability of the unit remain unchanged. This creates security of investment for our guests and facilitates the transition to sustainable fluorine gas-free technologies.”
Westnetz GmbH supports the energy transition in Germany with multitudinous invention systems and is a married mate in the development and testing of new climate-neutral technologies for switchgear. With the environmentally friendly extension of its substation in Bekond, Westnetz now aims to combine high security of force with climate-neutral technology. The Bekond substation inventories roughly residers in the Trier-Saarburg quarter and the Trier Region Industrial Park (IRT) with electricity and is the feed-in point for renewable energy from photovoltaics and wind power into the distribution grid. Increased demand for connections from artificial guests and directors of renewable energy needed the extension of the being gas- isolated 24-kV switchgear.
