          Solar power plant with SGC DF-2 switchgear in Chad

          Solar photovoltaic power plant with SGC DF-2 equipment commissioned in Bithéa, Abéché, Chad


          Solar photovoltaic power plant with SGC DF-2 equipment commissioned in Bithéa, Abéché, Chad

          This is a nice reference project in the Sahel area where SGC has supplied several DF-2(+) types of high quality air insulated AIS switchgear.

          The contract was won because of our good references for sustainable products in Chad.

          Innovent, through its Chadian subsidiary, built the Abeche solar power plant. The construction site, which started in May 2019, currently consists of 3,600 solar panels, 40 trackers and 10 inverters of 100 kW each, for a capacity of 1 MW. Eventually, the park will consist of 21,600 solar panels for a total capacity of 5 MW. Innovent manages the park with its own staff on site.

          The solar power plant consists of polycrystalline panels mounted on trackers, which follow the path of the sun from east to west and will thus increase production by 25% compared to a fixed system.

          The energy situation in Chad is tense. According to the World Bank, only 8% of the population has access to electricity.

          The objective of the solar park is to reduce the consumption of polluting diesel. This seems to have worked well since the park was commissioned at the end of last year.

          The solar photovoltaic plant will allow SNE to cover the electricity needs of the city of Abeche with about 80,000 inhabitants.

          We are very proud to contribute with our products to this renewable energy project.

          ISO certificate extended until 2024

          We are proud to announce that we have successfully renewed our ISO 9001 certification until the end of 2024.

          The certificate is carried out by Vinçotte and is valid from 15 December 2021 until 14 December 2024.

          One of the main values where SGC – Switchgear Company stands for is Quality.

          At SGC we want you to be maximally satisfied with our quality in manufacturing medium voltage switchgear. That’s why, in addition to our strict internal review, we also attach great importance to an objective, external review. The ISO 9001 certificate is the ultimate confirmation of the fact that we only produce MV Switchgear of the highest quality.

          Special production units and a highly automated production are the key factors. We can say that we work with a “State-of-the-Art” machinepark and only use switchgear components of the highest quality.

          It allows us to develop DF-2, DF-3, DW-2, DR-6/DT-6, DI-2 according to the highest quality standards.

          Visit of the Trade delegation from Central African Republic

          SGC – Switchgear Company invited the Trade delegation of the Central African Republic from the electricity company ENERCA last week.

          The reason for the visit is the possible cooperation, in the footsteps of the successful project in Moundou (Chad), between SGC -SwitchGear Company and ENERCA.

          SGC – Switchgear Company can say that we’re innovator in the development of energy security installations that comply with Sahel standards.

          Moreover, our medium voltage switchgear are built to last and can withstand the extreme weather conditions (temperatures > 40 °C).

          Our sales expert, for the Sahel region in particular, Frank Claeys, welcomed the delegation and organized a company visit on our site in Landegem, including a tour through our production facilities and museum.

          Bezoek Stadhuis Deinze

          But we even saw it bigger, not only on the level of energy supply, but also in helping them with solutions to their needs.

          On Thursday 18 November, the delegation was invited to the town council of Deinze. The Mayor Jan Vermeulen, Filip Vervaeke, alderman for local economy and Yannic Demeyer, coordinator of Deinze Industrie vzw welcomed the delegation in the town house.

          The purpose of the visit is to explore the possibility of partnerships with the city of Deinze or with Belgian companies that also trade with the Central African Republic or Chad.

          The program included a reception at the Leiespiegel service centre and a site visit on Blue Bike.

          DF-2-air insulated switchgear successfully installed in Queensland by reseller NHP


          DF-2-air insulated switchgear successfully installed in Queensland (Austrialia) by our reseller NHP

          Check out the case study from our reseller NHP

          NHP was proud to assist in upgrading the Oxley Creek Sewage Treatment Plant in South East Queensland for flood resilience and optimising operations with a healthy and efficient electrical design.

          The Solution: DF-2-air insulated switchgear module with built-in arc quenching system ‘Arc Killer’

          The project included decommissioning the original high-voltage switchroom and the 11kV main switchboard for the site, and replacing it with a new main 11kV switchboard contained within a demountable building. The building was also raised 30cm above the 2011 peak flood line levels.

          Within the switchroom, NHP specified the DF-2 air-insulated switchgear module with demountable vacuum circuit breakers and a remote operation functionality. Exclusive to NHP switchgear, the cubicles were specifically designed to minimise the consequences of an internal arc and forming a key component of this, is a built-in arc quenching system “arc killer”, which can extinguish an arc in less than 50ms.

          “NHP were able to design, supply and install a solution for Queensland Urban Utilities that not only meets local requirements, but delivers an advanced technology which only NHP offers to the market.”

          Cabling via 3D engineering

          Turnkey cabling with 3D design software


          Turnkey cabling with 3D design software

          Innovation and care for the environment are the driving forces behind our products and our company. Many of our products are developed based on co-engineering with our customers.

          We are happy to take you behind the scenes of how we optimize our production processes continuously. For example, we invested in a Komax cable machine, an automation solution for wire assembly.

          Cabling via 3D engineering

          Komax cuts, strips and labels each wire.

          Production Manager Amédée Mouton: “The Komax is a machine that cuts, strips, crimps and labels electrical wires. Our panel builders receive a custom wire, which saves them on numerous preparatory tasks: cutting wire to size, exposing copper, crimping cable shoes, labeling… A lot less manual work and time savings so that they do not have to look at the plan every time to check to see which wire should be where. This allows our craftsmen to use their knowledge and practical experience for what really counts and think along with the engineers about a design, rather than cutting wires to size.”

          Wire confection: the advantages at a glance

          • Faster cabling in the workshop and avoiding errors.
          • Economic just-in-time production from a batch of 1.
          • Wire sorting in the correct order for the follow-up process.
          • Shorter lead times and better quality.

          Machine controlled by 3D design software

          Yvan Lammens: “The data that the Komax needs comes directly from our electrical CAD software to define the cable lists, lengths of the wires, the connection points,…. Each thread is custom-made and marked with a start and end point. We can provide wires up to 6 mm² with this machine (10 mm² is possible with adjustment). Worldwide there are at most three that offer this.”
