LONGUEUIL, Quebec and TETTNANG, Germany--11 Jul--PRNewswire/InfoQuest
VIZIMAX and TAVRIDA ELECTRIC release the world's first, compact SF6-free, single-pole operated 24 kV metal-clad switchgear with advanced, synchronous and transient-free switching control.

VIZIMAX is pleased to announce its cooperation with TAVRIDA ELECTRIC, a global leader of medium-voltage vacuum circuit breakers, switchgear and distribution automation solutions. The cooperation combines highly reliable and maintenance free TAVRIDA ELECTRIC vacuum circuit breakers and switchgear with VIZIMAX's controlled switching devices. This combination will achieve near-zero inrush currents and reduce voltage dips when energizing power transformers, while eliminating destructive transients when switching MV capacitors, harmonic filters, reactors.

The independent pole operated 24 kV metal-clad switchgear circuit breaker provides VIZIMAX's and TAVRIDA ELECTRIC's worldwide customers a turnkey solution for CAPEX limitation, transient mitigation and asset preservation aimed at power utilities, renewables, mining, steelmaking, railway and electro-intensive industries.

"We are thrilled to team-up with TAVRIDA ELECTRIC to jointly offer a long sought-after solution to improve grid connections and maximize the use of existing power infrastructures." said Jean-Guy Lacombe, VIZIMAX's President and CEO. Nowadays power utilities, generators and IPPs/OEMS in renewable energies implement larger wind and solar power plants. This leads to ever-increasing power transformer capacities calling for inrush current and voltage dip mitigation. "Both teams exchanged a lot over the last months. We have now converged to deliver a ground-breaking solution and a unique value proposition" added Lacombe.

"The cooperation brings a cutting-edge solution desired by many of our customers around the world" said Johannes Okon, TAVRIDA ELECTRIC West Europe Managing Director. Advanced reactive power compensators and power factor correction are in high demand and generate a tremendous need for more reliable switching apparatuses and reactive load preservation. "Our solution eliminates switching transients and preserves equipment, while enabling the fast-switching of capacitor banks and harmonic filters" added Okon.
