COMECA retrofits circuit-breakers on a oil platform in Congo

The platform operator wanted to extend the lifetime of the low-voltage switchgears installed by Alstom in 1995. After performing maintenance, COMECA listed obsoletes components including GE's Unelec circuit breakers. COMECA proposed a kit solution prepared in its factory.


This project required the replacement of 26 GE Unelec brand circuit-breakers to the Schneider Electric NW (rating 1600A to 4000A). All the kits were delivered on site and replacement campaigns will be carried out until 2023.

COMECA is an expert in this type of intervention thanks to its skills as as original manufacturer with a perfect knowledge of the equipment installed, the original drawings and its Retrofit kit solution, which limits the shutdown on the LV switchgears.
