What advantages has retrofit compared to maintenance have for GIS?

Herb Rogers, Head of High-voltage Service

ABB's answer

Retrofit provides additional value to the customer as the latest products with state-of-the-art-technology are implemented. Furthermore the lifetime of the whole system can be prolonged by pro- actively replacing specific parts of the system. The installation and commissioning costs are lower for retrofits compared to maintenance since complete parts of the system are replaced and not only specific items which have to dismounted one by one. GIS Service offers retrofits for CBs, CB drives and LCCs. Further Bay Extensions, Layout Modifications and Rating Upgrades are available.
