Siemens protects UK Power Networks’ distribution grid

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Siemens has received an order from distribution network operator, UK Power Networks, to equip parts of its overhead-line system with 600 Fusesaver vacuum circuit-breakers and 200 remote control units (RCU). The vacuum circuit-breakers will be installed directly on overhead cables to minimise the number of customers affected in the event of a fault. This will minimize installation and maintenance costs while significantly improving supply reliability and grid stability. “This order is an important milestone in the development of the European market for the Fusesaver,” said Stephan May, CEO of Medium Voltage Systems at #siemens. “UK Power Networks is an important partner for us.” It is the largest order to date for Fusesavers in Europe and the first one from the U.K. The order volume is €1.5 million.
