Efacec to release new switchgear at CIRED
Portuguese power company Efacec will present a new range of modular medium voltage switchgear for secondary distribution application during the International Conference on Electricity Distribution (CIRED).
The CIRED conference takes place in Madrid from June 3-6.
Called neoGEN, this new range of products is made up of environmentally friendly and SF6 gas-free technology, which combines resistance to ambient conditions with the flexibility and extendability of a modular design.
The insulation medium is air combined with solid insulation while all switching operations are done with vacuum technology. The switchgear is also prepared for smart grid applications and can be equipped with advanced protection, control and monitoring functions.
neoGEN is an example of Efacec’s effort to design products with lower environmental impact.
CIRED, the forum where the electricity distribution community meets, covers the whole field of electricity distribution systems and associated services, including distributed generation issues, cost reduction, asset management, flexibility tools and integration mechanisms, new roles for distribution, resiliency and reliability, sustainability and improved energy efficiency, telecommunication and data management.
This conference will be attended by more than 120 companies, up to 2,000 experts (80% of international attendance) and key decision leaders in the field of electricity distribution.
