Electrical Houses (eHouse)

Custom-engineered, walk-in metal enclosure specifically built to protect critical electrical equipment in the power distribution network.

Electrical House (eHouse), also called Power House, is a prefabricated walk-in modular outdoor enclosure to house a medium voltage (MV) and low voltage (LV) switchgear as well as auxiliary equipment. It can be skid or wheel mounted and is ready to operate in the field with minimum installation, commissioning and start up time - as an alternative to traditional on-site building construction (concrete block, brick construction or similar).

Proximity to major suppliers during design / construction makes the changes and integration easier. The eHouse is tested before shipping including all its components, which minimizes risks in the field. Its mobility makes it easy and cost effective to install and relocate. eHouse can be installed close to the main loads which reduces the power and control cable size and length. By being close to the loads the energy cost is lower. 


eHouses are growing in popularity in the power generation, oil and gas and mineral extraction and processing industries. They are ideally suited for any project where there is a need to reduce on-site work, especially in remote areas where qualified personnel is sometimes not available and all labor is expensive and difficult to manage.

Why ABB?

  • From design to delivery - single point of contact for all equipment
  • Cost effective supply and project management
  • Shorter startup / commissioning time
  • Optimal building size covering the present needs and expandable in the future
