Siemens hands over the 100th bay of GIS

The power transmission division of the company celebrated the handing over of the 100th bay of gas insulated switchgear (GIS) from its factory at Aurangabad in Maharashtra. The GIS was handed over to S K Negi, Managing Director, Gujarat Energy Transmission Corporation (GETCO).

The factory has achieved a distinction by supplying the complete range of GIS, starting from 72.5 kV up to 420 kV in a short span of time. Pawan Parikh, Head, Transmission Division, Siemens, said, “This solution saves substantial space, reduces O&M cost and provides very high reliability. The growing preference towards GIS is not only from urban utilities but also from all major transmission and generation utilities and industry.”

Meanwhile, the company said it may withdraw completely from building nuclear reactors as a result of the Fukushima incident. It said it will continue to manufacture components like steam turbines, which are used in conventional power industry, and also can be used in nuclear power stations.
