GEs G3 Technology to Accelerate Decarbonization Efforts in Sweden

Source: 9/21/2021, Location: Europe

GE Renewable Energys Grid Solutions business has been awarded a contract for Swedens first SF6 free gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) to be installed at the Vattenfall Eldistribution AB Lindhov substation in Tumba, located approximately 25 km from the center of Stockholm. The switchgear will feature GEs industry-leading g3 (pronounced g- cubed) gas, a game-changing alternative to SF6 - a potent greenhouse gas - with a global warming potential (GWP) that is about 99% less compared to SF61.

The project scope covers the design, engineering, delivery, and erection & commissioning of eight bays of GEs F-35-41g 145 kV g3 switchgear.

This contract represents GEs latest g3 switchgear award and demonstrates that utility operators are becoming increasingly aware of their environmental footprint and the impact it has on their communities and the world around them. Today, 25 leading electrical utilities have already adopted GEs g3 gas products for their high voltage networks, avoiding the addition of more than a million tons of CO2 equivalent to the grid. Thats the equivalent of removing about half a million petrol cars from the road for one year, said Mikael Grage, Managing Director - Sweden at GEs Grid Solutions.

A recent EU Commission report concluded that fluoronitrile-based gas mixtures such as g3 gas - may be the only insulating and switching gas alternative to SF6 when space is a constraint, such as in urban areas. Thats because fluoronitrile-based gas products feature the same compactness and performance as traditional SF6 equipment, unlike other SF6-free solutions.

GEs g3 gas-insulated products are currently available for live-tank circuit-breakers and gas-insulated substations (GIS) up to 145 kV, as well as gas-insulated lines (GIL) up to 420 kV.
