SF6 insulated equipment Siemens

During operation, the 400 kV outdoor switchgear with 20 panels will be gradually stripped down in the coming years. In its place, Siemens will build two gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) with 14 and 12 panels during the first expansion stage and 18 and 15 panels, respectively, in the final stage in Karlsruhe.
