e²ALPHA switchgear for EDF SA

The order for EDF Poland “Wybrzeże” Department “Modernization of 6kV switchgear in Power Heat Plant – Gdańsk ” concerned, among others, deliveries of 54 bays of the e²ALPHA switchgear along with the project, installation and construction works, updating of DCS systems and energy supervision as well as full commissioning. As part of the task, two double-section e²ALPHA switchgears (25 and 29 bays) were installed. Modern  solutions have been used in the switchgears, allowing for reliable control of the switchgear and comfortable and safe exploitation. The mechanical blockade of the rear cover or the ‘off’ emergency button is a response to special customer requirements for technical solutions in the switchgears. Work on the switchgears required detailed planning due to the continuity of the power plant operation and the planned withdrawal periods. An important element of the project was the synchronization of the connections of all elements of the system and the adjustment to the existing system. The developed solution has been thoroughly tested and checked prior to installation on the final destination.
