The Solution

To meet Ljusgårda’s environmental aspirations and rapid expansion, they collaborated with ABB to provide an effective electrical infrastructure. ABB’s ecoGIS portfolio offered the solution, as it comprises ground-breaking eco efficient technology providing an alternative to SF₆ and the power to dramatically reduce destructive emissions in electricity distribution, without compromising performance, safety, reliability, and availability. Not only is ABB’s ecoGIS switchgear free from SF₆, in the unlikely event of a leakage, it may even continue to operate if the gas tank pressure is lowered. This ensures better reliability, safety and availability, while at the same time aligning with Ljusgårda’s environmental goals.
