All new installations of electric power supply completed while the shows were going on

  • Absolutely reliable, safe, and highly available electric power supply systems, above all for the stage equipment and lighting

  • Integrated and technically homogeneous solution linking medium-voltage and low-voltage switchgear

  • Use of the SIMARIS design and SIMARIS project software tools for dimensioning and planning individual system components, thus ensuring optimal power system design


Products & systems by Totally Integrated Power applied

  • 7 panels of gas-insulated 8DJH medium-voltage switchgear including no-maintenance SF 6-insulated circuit breakers

  • Outgoing units to the series-connected transformers are additionally equipped with one SIPROTEC 7SJ80 overcurrent protection relay each

  • 3 GEAFOL cast-resin transformers, nominal output 1,000 kVA each

  • 40 panels of the SIVACON S8 low-voltage switchboard, divided into three blocks

  • Each panel equipped with:
    - 3WL air circuit breakers for protection against overcurrent and short circuits with extremely high current levels
    - SENTRON 3NJ6 switch disconnectors with fuses
    - SENTRON PAC 3200 multi-function measuring devices, allowing for a future connection to building substation control as well as energy monitoring systems

  • About 50 meters of SIVACON 8PS busbar trunking system installed: type LXA made of aluminum for a very low fire load, 1,600 A nominal current
