HV Switchgear Retro-Fit

Electrical switchgear and safety is at the forefront of any operational site and the advice given by the HSE will help you to keep your electrical switchgear safe and comply with The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.
As an independent supplier, Ipsum can offer via its Q/A approved chain, new withdrawable Retrofit Vacuum Circuit Breakers type tested to IEC 60056 or IEC62271, which will directly replace existing truck-mounted Oil Circuit Breakers, whilst retaining the existing fixed housings and main power cables which in turn vastly reduces outages and eliminates costly civil works. No busbar outages are required to conduct the retrofits.
Retrofitting old oil insulated switchgear is a proven highly cost-effective and reliable process which once installed reduces HV maintenance and the overall operational costs of sites by means of reducing shut down times and ultimately improving existing system reliability and operational safety.
