Lucy Electric unveils first 36kV Ring Main Unit

Lucy Electric has launched its first 36kV ring main unit. The new Aegis36 is the latest extension to its Aegis range and means that customers across Africa will now be able to select Lucy Electric ring main products across the full secondary distribution voltage range.

The new Aegis36 has been developed to meet growing demand for a quality switchgear solution across 36kV networks and the increasing number of renewable power connections in Africa and worldwide. Created using Lucy Electric’s proven and reliable technology, its compact design means it has one of the smallest foot prints of all 36kV RMUs on the market. The unit is automation-ready, with optional integrated remote terminal units for remote operation and control.

Easy to install with simple and virtually maintenance-free operation, the Aegis36 combines the highest power ratings, safety features and is compliant with the latest IEC standards, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.  It offers a wide range of load switch and circuit breaker combinations and a large selection of IDMT relays, VPIS/VDS, EFI and other accessories, for maximum flexibility.

All live parts in the Aegis36 are insulated within a hermetically-sealed, stainless steel SFgas enclosure. It has an internal arc rated cable box, internal cable compartment and key locks for safety during operation.
