SF6-alternative gases gas insulated substation unit

Used as part of a gas mixture, Novec Insulating Gases are suitable for both medium- and high-voltage applications and are non-flammable and non-ozone-depleting. As sustainable alternatives to SF₆, Novec Insulating Gases help reduce the GHG impact in on-grid commercial equipment more than 99% and therefore provide a significant and meaningful reduction of the environmental impact.
