For decades, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) has been the predominant insulation medium for switchgear due to its technical properties. ABB has been developing and deploying alternatives to this greenhouse gas on the path towards greater ecoefficiency and lower environmental impact and is now commissioning the world’s first pilot with a new eco-efficient gas mixture.
