• ABB presents world’s first switchgear that allows customers

    Available from late 2020, it is the world’s first switchgear that allows customers across sectors including utilities, industry and infrastructure, to change the insulation gas to an eco-efficient alternative at any point of the switchgear’s lifetime. SF 6 (Sulfur hexafluoride) has been a reliable insulation gas used in switchgear for over 50 years worldwide. Although it has excellent insulation qualities, it also has a high global warming potential and is a potent greenhouse gas.
