Issues with leaking SF6 assets? Problem solved with EMT Site Services

EMT Site Services have recently completed work in the UK and overseas, with many more projects scheduled in for spring and summer. We still have dates available to carry out SF6 leak surveys and repairs, so please contact the team if you have a concern regarding leaking assets.

 

 

Project Bulletin

 

A Norwegian utility contracted EMT Site Services to run a series of leak surveys to detect and confirm the presence of SF6 leakage within the work area. Using EMT best practice leak survey methodology and EMT advanced leak detection technology, our team identified and located several SF6 leaks within their installed assets including GIB, HV bushings and interconnecting supply pipework.

 

The team are now scheduled to undertake 3 leak repairs with composite sealant filler and bonding technique, which will require SF6 gas handling and removal of the gas during repair. In addition to EMT site services, this customer has also expressed an interest in EMT hand held and fixed point detection systems and our Zerowaste analysis technologies.

 

Our experts were also commissioned to undertake a 132kv bushing repair for a UK utility; which included analysis of existing SF6 gas prior to removal, de-gas of SF6 to auxiliary storage via EMT gas cart, composite repair installation, and re-gas of SF6.

 

The system was fully tested and signed off as leak-free on completion of works.
