Ensuring fault-free operation of medium-voltage switchgearsTo guarantee efficient and safe power distribution, it is key that medium-voltage switchgears in power networks operate in a highly reliable manner and comply with the performance requirements – despite age and wear. Our worldwide customer-focused Siemens service centers offer all services needed to keep your medium-voltage switchgears functioning and up-to-date. We service Siemens products as well as Magrini Galileo, Merlin Gerin, Elin Holec and Reyrolle products.
Keep your medium-voltage equipment in its best possible shape
Even the most reliable and rugged distribution assets are subject to wear and aging as they are used for 40 to 50 years. To avoid expensive failures and downtime, your medium-voltage equipment needs excellent care and ongoing service. That’s why we support you throughout the entire life span of your devices, maintaining them in the best possible shape and even increasing their performance, while at the same time saving on investments and reducing lifecycle costs.
Our services for medium-voltage switchgears cover the full range – from planned maintenance and inspections, repair and emergency services and spare parts, to modernizations and extensions, trainings, asset management, reviews and consulting.
Circuit breaker monitoring for greater service reliability
The reliability of MV circuit breakers is generally high, but due to life time extension trend and changed maintenance policies, care should be taken to maintain an acceptable reliability level in all situations. This is a challenge when the components, like the drives, are exposed to hazardous and severe environmental conditions. Especially when the circuit breakers are not operated for a long time, mechanical parts can malfunction due to dirty conditions.
Our monitoring system Assetguard MVC takes care of the service reliability of the medium-voltage circuit breakers, also monitoring the tripping and closing functionalities and main contacts wear.
The right spare part at the right time at your fingertips
