Temporary 24 kV switchgear for EKZ
A novelty for EKZ: high efficient conversions with a mobile switchgear!
The new EKZ module was delivered to the Duebendorf substation. It includes a 24kV switchgear with control and protection equipment and a station control system. The first mission for the module is the substation in Duebendorf. The module is located next to the substation building and replaces the medium-voltage system as a temporary solution for 18 months. The entire system in the building can be de-energized and the approximately 40-year-old switchgear can be replaced easily. Further use for this mobile solution is already planned.
24 kV switchgear with 9 cubicles
Field of application of the module is within in the EKZ grid (slightly larger than the Kt. Zürich)
Maximum power to be transmitted: 40 MW
