Efacec will present a new product of the switchgear range during the International Conference on Electricity Distribution (CIRED), that Madrid will play host from 3rd to 6th June 2019. This is a new range of modular medium voltage switchgear for secondary distribution application.

Called neoGEN, this new range of products is made up of innovative, environmentally friendly and SF6 gas-free technology, which combines resistance to ambient conditions with the flexibility and extendibility 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.

Design Features:

  • SF6 free technology
  • Modular switchgear (extensible both sides)
  • Main circuit isolated and protected from ambient conditions
  • Very compact and light design
  • Insulation medium is air combined with solid insulation
  • Vacuum technology for switching
  • Easy installation and extension
  • Same width for switch disconnector and circuit breaker modules (375mm)
  • Integrated MV cable testing facilities (optional)
  • Integrated voltage and current sensors (optional)
  • Automation controllers (optional)

In addition to its switchgear business area, Efacec will be present at this event with its automation, transformers and service business areas.

neoGEN is an example of Efacec’s effort to design products with lower environmental impact. Efacec is deeply committed to contribute to a better, cleaner and safer world. To achieve such important goals, the company has implemented a sustainability policy that reinforces its commitment to protect the environment and reduce environmental impacts throughout our products lifecycle. The concept of circular economy is a guideline for Efacec, based on the production and disposal of waste, new circular flows, reuse, restoration and renewal of materials and energy.

CIRED, the leading 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 over 120 companies, up to 2,000 experts (80% of international attendance) and key decision leaders in the field of Electricity Distribution.

With a comprehensive presence in the value chain of Energy, Mobility and Environment, Efacec acts as a solution provider, EPC contractor (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) and O&M service partner. Efacec is present in strategic markets such as Europe, the United States of America, Latin America, Asia, Middle East, Maghreb and Southern Africa.
