MV disconnectors for ČEZ Distribuce

Plzeň, Czech Republic, May 2021 R&S SERW has received a new project from ČEZ Distribuce a.s., the biggest distribution system operator in the Czech Republic. The order includes a delivery of 34 pieces of 25 kV disconnectors to the substation Podbořany.

Some specifications of the project:

  • Product: 34 pcs 25 kV, 630 A/1250 A, 25 kA 3-phase disconnectors with motor drives
  • Installation site: distribution substation Podbořany, Czech Republic
  • Ordered: April 2021
  • Scheduled delivery: December 2021
  • Project volume: 1.738.555 CZK

The delivery of MV disconnectors for the distribution substation Podbořany will completely replace older disconnectors. It was necessary to create a tailored solution for the existing building. The key factor for the success of this was the close cooperation between a designer and the R&S SERW technical department. In case of replacement of the old disconnectors, such as at this substation, they need to establish the right way for arranging installation of the disconnectors.

“The complete delivery has been prepared from the same beginning, including a design of the project in cooperation with a designer who was supported by our technical department. This cooperation was highly appreciated by the end user, ČEZ Distribuce.” – said Pavel Chaluš, Sales Director at R&S SERW.
