Anord lead the way with UKs first fully type tested Package Substation

06 March 2009

Once again Anord have broken new ground in the switchgear industry, by successfully completing a test program for a fully type tested Package substation.

In order to meet the ever changing needs of our valued client base, Anord embarked on the program in late 2008 and completed all required tests in February 2009. The fully type tested package substation is truly a first in the industry, as it encompasses short circuit withstand certification for the entire assembly including: transformer, transformer to ACB LV bus-bars and LV switchgear bus-bars. Further to that, the entire assembly has also passed temperature rise testing of all components including the transformer within the housing assembly. The most significant achievement of the program was the successful seismic testing of the entire assembly, proving that Anord AMS switchgear is extremely robust and will safely operate in the most onerous climatic conditions and fault.
