There are two kinds of underground CGIT installations: buried and open or covered trenches. Buried installations offer the advantage of lower installation costs in open areas. Trenches are necessary when crossing roads or installing in areas where water tables are close to ground level.
CGIT: Compressed Gas Insulated Transmission
Compact Design. High current capacity. Minimal power loss. Flexible, low cost installation. As many advantages as a CGIT bus system provides, there is an equal number of applications for its use.
As the only North American manufacturer of SF6 gas insulated transmission bus systems for use in high voltage transmission and substation applications, CGIT Systems provides a compact, economical and reliable alternative to conventional cable systems and overhead lines.
Whether you are having trouble connecting your power plant to the transmission grid, have space limitations that precludes the use of overhead lines or need an innovative line crossing solution, CGIT’s decades of experience can work for you.
