Switchgear Market 

Substations are roughly half of the spend at major utilities around the world within the medium and high voltage categories. Despite the large opportunity, the complexity by which these substations are awarded, designed, and erected is significant. This task leads many other market research companies to size individual markets in a top-down methodology leading to inaccuracies and unexplainable trends when forecasts are compared to actual data. PTR diverges from that methodology by individually researching every market and understanding both the grid in every country to size the opportunity for both medium voltage and high voltage switchgear.

SF6 replaced for the first time in existing HV equipment

National Grid has an ambitious target to reduce its SF6 emissions by 50% by 2030 and to eventually eradicate SF6 from its entire fleet by 2050. As a big step in this direction, it partnered with Hitachi Energy to replace SF6 from its 420 kV gas-insulated lines...

Nuventura launches nu1, a green digital GIS

Nuventura has launched a new green and digital switchgear for primary distribution for voltage levels up to 36 kV; work on it started back in 2017. It uses dry air instead of SF6 as an insulation medium. Nu1 has been type tested according to IEC standards and the...
