Nuventura and E.DIS collaboration:

E.DIS company has installed Nuventura’s NU1™ dry sf6 free medium voltage switchgear at their Ketzin substation in Brandenburg, Germany. This project contributes to E.DIS’ mission of reliably providing electricity through an innovative and sustainable grid.

Nuventura has started a collaboration with the utility company E.DIS. Together, they have completed an installation of Nuventura’s NU1 medium-voltage gas-insulated switchgear sf6 free(GIS). It is a fully certified (type-tested) GIS for primary distribution grids that use dry air as the electrical insulating medium instead of SF6. The project will also test Nuventura’s IoT solution, which aims to improve switchgear asset management through real-time monitoring.

Andreas Freygang, E.DIS’ Project Manager said:

“Our main objective as E.DIS Netz GmbH is to supply our customers with energy reliably and around the clock. Sustainability also plays an increasingly important role in this, which is why we will increasingly evaluate new, SF6-free alternatives. It fills me with pride that the switchgear has been installed after two years of intensive cooperation. I am looking forward to further cooperation with Nuventura to make our network future-proof and at the same time ensure a reliable and sustainable energy supply”.

Nuventura company designs novel GIS technologies that remove the need for SF6 or any other fluorinated gases (F-Gases) in medium voltage primary switchgear applications. By being integrated with E.DIS’ medium voltage network, the dry air GIS will provide both Nuventura and E.DIS with valuable operating experience with this new generation of sustainable GIS.

Nuventura’s CEO and Co-Founder talks about this agreement:

Dr. Fabian Lemke, Nuventura’s CEO and Co-Founder said:

“Our goal as a company is to develop and license switchgear technologies that will eventually make the use of SF6 in the energy industry obsolete. Together with E.DIS, we are piloting our patented technology that, while being completely environmentally sustainable and digitally enhanced, does not compromise on performance. We hope that this represents a significant step towards the development and adoption of F-gas-free GIS alternatives,”

Through Nuventura’s cloud-based sensor integration, E.DIS company will be able to remotely visualize, monitor, and analyze – in real-time and around the clock – the installed assets’ conditions. This will contribute to E.DIS’s goal of consistently providing high grid and power quality.

E.DIS company is the regional grid operator in Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania; its electricity grid covers 79,000 kilometers.
