Siemens Energy to deliver insulating gas-free gas-insulated switchgear

Apr 29, 2021 · Finland’s transmission system operator Fingrid has contracted Siemens Energy to deploy ten bays of sulfur hexafluoride (gaz sf6)-free gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) at a substation near Helsinki. The novel system will replace the potent greenhouse gas Sulfr hexafluoride with „clean air”, a mixture of nitrogen and oxygen.

Sulfur hexafluoride is a commonly used insulator in electricity transmission and distribution equipment. Because of its high global warming potential (GWP), CARB adopted the Regulation for Reducing Sulfur Hexafluoride Emissions from Gas Insulated Switchgear in 2010. As new technologies using lower or zero GWP insulators emerge, CARB staff are proposing to amend the current regulation to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to increase flexibility in complying with the standards.
