Application: SF6 Gas Topping Up x 2 Sites

Customer: UK Solar Farm

Date: June 2022

Problem: Low gas pressure reported

Solution: Field based SF6 gas top up utilising EMT Site Services and patented EMT Smartfill technology

 

Works:

  • Leak survey completed using EMT SF6 leak detector
  • Pressure survey completed
  • SF6 gas top up completed
  • Continued pressure monitoring advised
  • Future repair, de-gassing and re-gassing works discussed

Deliverables: SF6 gas top up restored pressure to normal operating conditions.
