E-House solutions – the fast-track project approach
E-Houses are customized, pre-assembled, and pre-tested modular power substations. They are ideally suited for use in situations where fast deployment and reduced on-site work are needed, or in locations that are difficult to access. The simple reason is that they are easy to assemble and put into operation. They provide a rapid and flexible power supply, precisely where it’s needed. E-Houses have proven themselves as an alternative to conventional power distribution solutions. They have been installed in large numbers throughout the world in industry and infrastructure, and for network operators.

tiastar low-voltage motor control centers
Siemens' tiastarTM industrial motor control centers (MCC) combine time-proven designs and components with the latest in technological advances to meet most applications. No matter how customized your needs may be, you can be assured that you are getting a finished product that represents the state-of-the-art in low-voltage motor control technology.
WL low-voltage switchgear
Siemens' low-voltage switchgear is designed, tested, and constructed to provide superior power distribution, power monitoring, and control. Utilized in a range of applications like industrial, institutional, critical power, and commercial, the switchgear solution is created for your world-class operations.
SIMOVAC medium-voltage motor controllers
Siemens' SIMOVACTM medium-voltage non-arc-resistant and SIMOVAC-ARTM arc-resistant controllers have a modular design incorporating up to two 12SVC400 (400 A) controllers, housed in a freestanding sheet steel enclosure. Each controller is UL 347 class E2, equipped with three current-limiting fuses, a non-load-break isolating switch, and a fixed-mounted vacuum contactor (plug-in type optional for 12SVC400). The enclosure is designed for front access, allowing the equipment to be located with the rear of the equipment close to a non-combustible wall.
Be it energy supply corporations, industry or power stations, any owner or user of primary distribution systems for medium voltage places high demands on the switchgear. These include reliable technology, ease of operation, and economy. With our complete range of circuit breaker and switchgear systems for medium-voltage, Siemens sets the standards when it comes to reliable and efficient solutions for special requirements. Types available include arc- or non-arc-resistant, gas-insulated or air-insulated, metal-enclosed or metal-clad, and with voltages ranging from 5 kV up to 42 kV.
GEAFOL cast-resin transformers
Wherever distribution transformers have to assure the utmost safety in areas frequented by people, GEAFOL® cast-resin transformers are the ideal solution. With GEAFOL, the limitations of liquid-filled transformers are avoided, but the proven electrical, mechanical and especially thermal characteristics are retained.
Factory acceptance testing (FAT)
