50Hz Solutions tap from the strengths of two significant European manufacturers of Resin Impregnated Paper (RIP) insulated busbar for medium voltage (up to 36kV) and high voltage (up to 245kV) applications.
MGC are the pioneers of the RIP technology, stemming from the 60’s. They are able to supply insulated busbar systems at all voltage levels up to 245kV and to rated currents up to 12,000A for medium voltage systems. MGC busbar systems installed in Australia during the 60’s and 70’s remain in service.
RITZ are limited to applications up to 36kV but have very strong connections with the switchgear OEM’s due to their long history of supplying instrument transformers to these same manufacturers.
