Low Voltage Switchgears

Switchgear plays a crucial role in electrical distribution systems, ensuring the safe and reliable control of power flow. Over time, as technology advances and electrical requirements evolve, existing switchgear may become outdated or inefficient. Retrofitting low voltage (LV) and medium voltage (MV) switchgear has emerged as a cost-effective solution to upgrade these systems, extending their lifespan and improving performance without the need for a complete overhaul.


Low voltage and medium voltage switchgear retrofitting offers a strategic approach to modernizing electrical systems, addressing obsolescence, improving safety, and enhancing overall performance. As technology continues to advance, retrofitting provides a flexible and sustainable solution for businesses looking to optimize their electrical infrastructure without the need for a full replacement


Increase of safety

  • Using type-2 coordination combinations.
  • Modules with ABB components are design verified in accordance to IEC-61439 standard.

Increase in reliability

  • Spare parts availability is guaranteed for many years as the new parts are in active phase.
  • ABB is using modern technologies and the latest components.


Reduction in downtime

  • Replacement of the drawers can partly take place during operational hours.
  • Replacement can be done in several steps, old and new drawers can operate in one switchgear.


  • Achived by extending the life cycle of your electrical system and minimazing raw materials usage.
