Gas-insulated switchgear ENK up to 72.5 kV

Environmentally friendly solution

The gas-insulated switchgear ENK is an innovative solution for meeting future requirements of the evolving smart power grid. It is the ideal solution for reliable supply and generation up to a rated voltage of 72.5 kV, a rated continuous current up to 2500 A, and a rated short circuit current up to 40 kA. The state-of-the-art design of ENK is composed of a minimum number of highly integrated functional modules that are easily and quickly installed on site. The compact, three-phase enclosed design fits even the smallest installation site.

Applications

  • Power transmission and distribution
  • Integration of renewable power generation units to the grid
