An Innovative Solution for GIS Testing

“Borkum Riffgrund 2” – an offshore wind turbine located 57 km north-west of the German coast, is set to receive two specially developed pieces of gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). OMICRON has worked in close collaboration with Siemens AG Berlin – manufacturers of switchgear and voltage transformers – in order to develop the perfect solution for this challenging project.

The greatest challenges in this project in particular were the structural conditions. In this case, it was not possible to use a conventional procedure with an external testing transformer. The lack of space and limited lifting equipment called for a tailor-made solution. The corresponding power unit (Power VT), combined with the OMICRON’s CPC 100 and CPC Sync, made it possible to carry out the required tests without the need for structural changes.
