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) apparatus and switchgear, is now one of the world's biggest suppliers of medium voltage gas insulated switchgear (GIS). Today over 1350000 Ormazabal medium voltage functional units have been installed in the electrical networks of over 100 electrical utilities and 600 wind farms in more than 110 countries.
Following the success of our well known ga, cgm, cgc and gae type fully metal-enclosed GIS systems, the first cgmcosmos was launched in 2000, as the most flexible modular and compact ring main unit (RMU) range for secondary distribution networks up to 24 kV. Thanks to our Spanish and German R&D teams' spirit of continuous innovation, cgmcosmos system has been continuously evolving into a more extended range with higher ratings based on our customers' demands. Being manufactured 100 % in Europe, cgmcosmos system has already been integrated into several Smart Grid applications. Currently more than 400000 cgmcosmos functional units have been in service in more than 60 countries.
