Efacec Prague have recently succeded in the Normafix 38.5kV Internal Arc Type Tests IAC 16kA (1s) inside Haramia PUC in VEIKI Budapest. The reason of these Type Tests is a condition given by CEZ Utilities to test every MV Switchgear inside each type of PUC. Nowadays most of private clients request to buy only “safe“ PUCs, i.e., fitted by “IAC type tested“ cubicles and Haramia is a strong Slovak player planning to improve its position in Czech market. The collaboration with Haramia started already in 1999, at that time most of Efacec MV cubicles in Slovakia were installed inside Haramia PUC, and this tests will allow for the increasing of sales of Normafix36 in the region.
Efacec won the first large tender in MV Switchgear in Czech Republic in 1999, has delivered over 100 configurations of Fluofix24, and since 2005 Efacec is continuously supplying Normafix to Czech Utilities. Actually, Efacec delivers to CEZ Utilities MV Switchgear series Normafix 25kV, Normafix 38.5kV and Fluofix 38.5kV in 4 regions out of the existing 5: West, North, East and Central Czech Republic, covering over 50% of the whole Czech territory.
CEZ gradually reconstructs old 10kV networks to 38,5kV in East and North part of the country and from 10 to 25kV in other regions. Dozens of existing PUCs were equipped by new Normafix in cities like Trebechovice, Nový Bydzov and 2017 is a row on Jaromer as Efacec was chosen by CEZ as a supplier of customized Normafix 38.5kV to Jaromer city.
