SF6-alternative gases insulated load switch equipments

As there is a high volume of SF6 11kV RMUs on most DNOs' networks, the project will focus on these devices and specifically the retrofitting of an alternative interrupting medium to replace SF6. It is recognised that most 11kV primary switchgear does contain SF6 with most being air insulated with vacuum interrupters.
