Lucy Switchgear, a global leader in switching, protection and automation solutions for electrical distribution systems, has today unveiled a Package Substation and 36kV Ring Main Unit at Sustainability Live’s NEMEX event. Capitalising on the business’s engineering heritage, the new products provide bespoke, best in class solutions in medium voltage distribution applications, in response to customers’ evolving market needs.

Providing a ‘one stop’ solution: Package Substation

Independent Distribution Network Operators (IDNOs) are increasingly undertaking a greater number of contestable connections and are seeking single source solutions to reduce administration and installation time. The new Lucy Switchgear Package Substation is designed to meet this need.

Comprising a Sabre Ring Main Unit, AcuLok distribution cabinet and a fluid filled distribution transformer,  the Package Substation has been developed in partnership with CG Power Solutions and brings together some of the best elements of each organisation’s market-leading technology and expertise.

Combining three best-in-class products, the substation is pre-assembled for quick and seamless installation providing a competitive ‘one-stop’ solution. Configurable for a wide range of power distribution and industrial applications, the Package Substation is fully warrantied, providing customers with complete peace of mind.

Expanding our Ring Main Unit range

The 36kV Ring Main Unit, with 630 and 1250 Amp ratings, is designed to be cost efficient, maintenance-free and simple to install and operate. Suitable for use in a whole range of industries, its applications include power stations, wind farms, solar power plants, co-generation facilities and diesel power plants.

Designed for safe operation in the most demanding, medium voltage switchgear applications, its proven technology incorporates a number of additional safety features, including the option of fuse switches or vacuum interrupters for circuit breakers and a wide range of relays for vacuum circuit breaker modules.

A compact design, which is extensible and modular, ensures the Lucy Switchgear 36kV Ring Main Unit provides customers with options for the smallest spaces and its hermetically sealed, stainless steel switching chamber is suitable for use in all climates and environments, with indoor and outdoor versions available.

Sundeep Singh, Global Product Marketing Manager at Lucy Switchgear said: “These brand new additions to the Lucy Switchgear range are designed to deliver specific benefits for Distribution Network Operators, Independent Network Operators, as well as customers in the renewable and industrial markets. Developing bespoke solutions for electrical distribution systems that meet our customers’ demands for efficiency, quality and built-in flexibility, is fundamental to our business. And our dedicated aftersales support service, for the full product lifecycle, means customers can buy our products with confidence.”
