ABB to Showcase Next Generation Switchgear Solutions at ADIPEC 2021

ABB to Showcase Next Generation Switchgear Solutions at ADIPEC 2021

  •  ABB’s new NeoGear™ and PrimeGear™ switchgear solutions will make their Middle East debut at ADIPEC
  •  The company will showcase its expertise in digitalizing, automating and electrifying the oil and gas industry

With global demand for more sustainable and efficient energy production growing exponentially, ABB will showcase its solutions designed to help the oil and gas sector achieve operational excellence at ADIPEC 2021.

Leveraging its capabilities in automation and electrification, ABB will illustrate how its latest innovations, such as the NeoGear and PrimeGear switchgear solutions, can increase output efficiency, while reducing risk and lowering environmental footprint.

Building on the success of its proven NeoGear technology, ABB has further developed NeoGear, the safest low-voltage switchgear on the market for operators and maintenance engineers. Its revolutionary design eliminates hazardous exposure to live parts and has 90 percent fewer electrical joints to improve switchgear availability.

Now available in the Middle East, ABB’s NeoGear switchgear offers a reduced physical footprint by up to 25 percent compared to equivalent switchgear technologies. Within this compact footprint, it also achieves energy efficiency of up to 20 percent due to reduced heat dissipation. Additionally, new digital capabilities deliver up to overall 30 percent lower operational costs thanks to for example a more efficient condition monitoring – making it a revolutionary step forward for sustainable switchgear.

The recently introduced 4-pole version as well as the upcoming 690 V version make NeoGear a practical solution for numerous market segments and industries, including utilities, food & beverage and infrastructure. NeoGear is also ideal for data centers and light industries where the highest safety standards and reliability are essential and where the reduced physical footprint and weight reduction of the switchgear are key benefits.

Visitors at ADIPEC will also have the opportunity to learn more about ABB’s PrimeGear ZX0 – the company’s sustainable, intelligent, medium-voltage primary gas-insulated switchgear.

With PrimeGear ZX0, ABB developed an all-in-one solution. PrimeGear ZX0 is available with SF6 or eco-efficient gas mixtures Dry Air or AirPlus™, an eco-efficient gas mixture with a global warming potential of less than one. It is also available with an optional eco-ready panel enabling customers to choose SF6 insulation and easily switch to AirPlus or Dry Air in the future. For a smarter experience, the PrimeGear ZX0 incorporates remote monitoring and diagnostics features, providing real time information and greater ease to track asset health from anywhere.

Made to withstand a range of temperatures and climatic conditions such as high humidity, the PrimeGear ZX0 is an ideal solution across industries in the Middle East – providing up to 20 percent less heat generation. Placing safety at the forefront, ABB’s switchgear also features a robust design, mechanically tested to withstand an arc flash event.

As a time saving construction, ABB’s PrimeGear ZX0 switchgear comes ready filled and sealed – eliminating the need for gas handling on-site. It also comes with greater flexibility when installing, thanks to a compact footprint and the choice of either a wall-mounding or free standing unit and top cable entry.

“As a leader in digitalization, automation and electrification, ABB is demonstrating how its technologies can empower the oil and gas industry to operate with greater productivity and safety. We are committed to helping energy companies operate in a more sustainable and secure manner and believe that ADIPEC provides an essential platform on which to conduct such dialogues. We look forward to meeting decisionmakers at the exhibition, offering our consultation to accelerate efficiencies and enable new, clean energy transition for a better future,” said Khalid Mandri, Global Head of Marketing and Sales Distribution Solutions.

ABB is a silver sponsor and exhibitor at ADIPEC 2021 and also serves as the main sponsor for the exhibition’s mobile application – enabling attendees to search for exhibitors and view conference agendas with ease.

ABB will be showcasing its solutions at ADIPEC 2021 between the 15th and 18th November, at stand number 3110. To find out more, please visit and
