Our SGC Sahel Line

A complete line of high quality products, specifically built to withstand the extreme conditions in the Sahel region.

The Sahel line is a series of products developed for medium voltage distribution posts in extremely hot area’s such as the Sahel. They are successfully introduced in Chad for the last 5 years without problems. This is a big step forward to improve the durability of the distribution network there.

As the switching happens in an SF6 gas medium, the dimensions of our cubicles are very restricted. The semi-compact cubicles are especially interesting when the available space is a problem or is economically a heavy factor. The cubicles contain all functional interlockings so that they will operate properly in line with all applicable standards, in a workroom next to major users. It reduces the power losses to a strict minimum. The cubicles are equipped with a pressure relief, so that the user is always protected against the negative consequences of an internal arc.

Switchgear built to withstand severe weather and environmental conditions

Medium Voltage (MV) switchgear Installations at or near seacoasts or other aggressive environments (extreme low or high temperatures, humidity and acid) are exposed to heavy contamination which results in acceleration of ageing of the material. It effects the insulation level, functioning of the mechanical parts or accelerates gas leaks.

As a standard SGC always produces their products according to the IEC 60932 §4 standard. This non obliged IEC additional requirement for standard material means severe climatic conditions method A level 2: (moist heat: cycle of each 4 hours: 30°C humidity 80% and 4 hours 50°C and humidity 95%) Cyclus length: 9 days.

SGC switchgear is used in utility-, hospital-, defense-, mining- and the oil- and gas projects where the energy supply is critical and where downtime is no option. If you have any concerns or doubts about your current or new switchgear installation, SGC is always at your disposal to give you more information.
