One of today’s main challenges in power transmission is to bring high voltage levels right into the centers of urban areas. This requires switchgear that features a small footprint, the utmost reliability, and very low noise and electromagnetic emissions. Siemens gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) are ideally suited to meet these requirements. Thanks to their compact design, Siemens GIS need very little space. With more than 45 years of GIS manufacturing experience, the largest installed base of GIS, and a long track record of superior turnkey supply, Siemens is able to provide one-stop GIS substations that also comprise all secondary technology, procurement, installation and commissioning on-site, and operational training.

The benefits of Siemens gas-insulated switchgear:

High reliability, availability, gastightness, and high degree of safety
Economic efficiency, long service life, little maintenance requirements, and low life cycle costs
Compact design, good accessibility and ergonomics, high degree of adaptability to individual requirements
