The new office and factory premises will allow for intense marketing and sales activities, as well as for the manufacture of the OSM Automatic Circuit Recloser
up to 38 kV both for overhead and substation applications and the RC10 controller, being the first units scheduled to be outputted in the second quarter of 2012.
On the other hand, the G5rx provides immediate power to utility substation automatic circuit reclosers
and is capable of handling lightning strikes, surges, or objects getting stuck in power lines until the grid becomes operational again.
In addition, the existing line hardware and special equipment, such as automatic circuit reclosers
, lightning arresters, isolation switches and transformers will be replaced to conform to the 22.9-kV voltage level.
Tenders are invited for Automatic circuit reclosers
used on the UtilityBoard~s 20.8 and 12.47 kV distribution system to provide automated sectionalizing control systems.
Electrical network bushfire mitigation activity has also delivered the upgrade of more than 720 sophisticated automatic circuit reclosers
(ACRs), allowing for faster fault detection responses at times of high bushfire risk and has seen the installation of dampers to reduce the risk of lines clashing, Mr Kotsiras said.
