  • cpg Medium Voltage Switchgear - Power Substations
    cpg system is a high duty and extensible Gas Insulated Switchgear up to 38 kV. cpg system has already been integrated into several Utility, RES and industrial applications. Currently more than 7,000 units have been in service in more than 25 countries....

  • The cpg.0 & cpg.1 families are single busbar and double-busbar metal enclosed Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS), consisting of medium voltage components such as circuit-breakers and disconnectors, which can be safely operated in confined spaces. This is thanks to its advance design where all active parts are contained into a stainless steel tight enclosure that ensures working conditions for its entire life.

    The product is 100% production tested to give best in class operation safety. Its modular design allows diagram extensibility to both sides without gas handling while offers frontal access for an easy installation and testing of power cables. P&C customization includes mechanical and electrical interlocks to prevent misoperation. Product robustness has been tested in case of internal arc fault.

    cpg systems provide maximum operational reliability as a prerequisite for the remote control and automation of power networks. GIS is invulnerable to pollution, vermin and atmospheric conditions. Sealed interrupters using vacuum as the dielectric medium have greatly improved life expectancy of circuit breakers while greatly reduces the need of shutdowns for maintenance.
  • Padmounted Switchgear
    Padmounted Switchgear is a prefabricated switching and breaking outdoor substation, tested and supplied from the factory as a single unit. It is designed for Distribution Networks of rated voltage up to 27 or sub-transmission 38 kV....

  • Ormazabal collaborates in innovative projects and provides solutions and products focused on improving the energy distribution efficiency in a continuous changing environment as driver and dynamic factor for smart grids.

    Getting its DNA from decades of experience in research, design, develop, manufacture and installation of Medium Voltage (MV) switchgear, is now one of the world's biggest suppliers of medium voltage gas insulated switchgear (GIS). Today over 1.350.000 Ormazabal medium voltage functional units have been installed in the electrical networks of over 100 Utilities and 600 wind farms in more than 110 countries.

    Padmounted Switchgear is a prefabricated switching and breaking outdoor substation. Installed at ground level, tested and supplied from the factory as a single unit. It is designed for Distribution Networks of rated voltage up to 27 or sub-transmission 38 kV. Reduced weight and dimensions enable simple handling and transportation.

    Padmounted Switchgear P&C functionality can be easily adapted to comply with Customer needs thanks to low energy current and voltage sensors on cable connectors and protection instrument transformers installed on cable compartment. It can be also supplied fully assembled with a replaceable voltage transformer HV fuse protected for LV auxiliary supply for protection relay and remote control unit.

    The Padmounted Switchgear complies with the requirements of IEEE standards:

    • IEEE C57.12.28:2014 PadMounted Equipment-Enclosure Integrity
    • IEEE C57.12.29:2014 PadMounted Equipment-Enclosure Integrity for Coastal Environments

    Padmounted Switchgear incorporates worldwide proven GIS metal-enclosed switchgear:

    • cgmcosmos or cgm.800 up to 27 kV / 600 or 800 A / 25 kA 1-3 s
    • cgm.3 and cgm.800 up to 38 kV / 600 or 800 A / 25 kA 1-3 s
