ABB's ecoGIS

Move into a greener world with us

ABB is transforming industries while embedding sustainability by developing alternatives to the greenhouse gas SF6. These alternatives can reduce the global warming impact by almost 100 percent.

We are proud to be helping our customers make the transition from SF6 to SF6-free technology, and have already provided SF6-free medium-voltage gas insulated switchgear (GIS) for more than five years.

Be ready for the change with our robust and future proof SF6-free low
pressure design which results in less stress on the material for maximized safety and highest reliability. 

Key benefits

Climate friendly
Keeping all SF6 gas-insulated switchgear benefits
Proven SF6-free technology

AirPlus is a pioneering gas mixture that reduces global warming potential by almost 100 percent.

As an innovative leader, ABB has delivered this proven AirPlus technology to the global market since

AirPlus combines more than 85 percent Dry Air with up to 15 percent 3M Novec insulating gas.

The switchgear becomes greener while offering a similar user experience as in SF6 switchgear.

Our safe low-pressure design has similar dielectric insulation benefits, footprint and reliability as SF6 switchgear.

AirPlus is suited to cover the whole medium voltage range up to 40 kV, both for primary and secondary distribution switchgear and ring main units (RMU).

For lower voltage applications up to 12 kV, Dry Air complements ABB’s sustainable switchgear portfolio. Global demand is growing, and more than 5,000 units of our eco-solutions have already been installed since 2015.
