First F-gas-free NXPLUS C 24 circuit-breaker panel from Siemens goes into operation
In cooperation with Siemens Smart Infrastructure, E.ON subsidiary Westnetz, one of Germany's largest distribution grid operators, has expanded its Bekond substation in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate with a fluorine gas-free NXPLUS C 24 circuit-breaker panel. It is the first panel of its type in the world to go into operation using Clean Air, the climate-neutral insulation gas. This installation demonstrates the functionality of fluorine gas-free solutions in grid operations and shows an easy way to extend existing technology with latest environmentally friendly technology.
