Extend and modify your switchgear to increase plant size

Increase your plant size and electrical system with ease

Extending your switchgear through our specialized solutions opens doors to significant increases in power distribution capacity. As plants or processes expand, the need for additional capacity from medium voltage or low voltage switchgear becomes a common requirement.

ABB's commitment to quality and innovation ensures that your extended switchgear not only complies with industry standards but also incorporates cutting-edge technology for optimal performance.

Our expertise extends beyond ABB's active and legacy brands to encompass non-ABB equipment as well. All discontinued switchgear, regardless of the manufacturer, can be extended by integrating new panels. This flexibility ensures that your existing infrastructure remains relevant and adaptable to evolving operational needs.
