Nuventura install their SF6-Free GIS in Spanish renewable project

Berlin, Germany | 21.09.2023

  • Nuventura have installed their nu1™ dry air GIS at a PV plant Spain.

  • Nu1™ replaces SF6 - the world's most potent greenhouse gas – with dry (technical) air as an insulating medium.

  • It is nuventura’s first project in the renewables sector.

  • It is the world’s first installation of a dry-air GIS operating at the 36kV voltage range

Nuventura's innovative nu1™ dry air gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) has been successfully deployed in a PV plant in Spain. This installation marks the first utilization of nuventura's SF6-free GIS technology within the renewable energy sector, specifically at the 36kV voltage range.

It the world’s first installation of a dry-air GIS at the 36kV voltage range.

Nuventura's nu1™ is a game-changer in the field, replacing sulphur hexafluoride (SF6), the most potent greenhouse gas known to mankind, with dry air as the insulating medium.

“We want to emphasize the importance of this project in further validating the viability of dry-air GIS technologies at the 36kV voltage range. Additionally, this successful deployment of nuventura's technology within the renewable sector marks a significant milestone and opens doors for future implementation.” says Sebastian Zache, nuventura’s Chief Commercial Officer.

Nuventura specializes in the development of environmentally-friendly medium voltage (MV) gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). Unlike traditional GIS technologies reliant on SF6, which is the world’s most potent greenhouse gas, Nuventura's solution replaces SF6 with dry air. By doing so, they contribute significantly to the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to the yearly CO2 emissions produced by 100 million cars.
