Kenya suffered a nationwide blackout will have an impact on the market of air load break switch

Kenya suffered a nationwide blackout will have an impact on the market of air load break switch

Kenya suffered a nationwide blackout on Tuesday after a high-voltage energy tower collapsed, the Kenya Electricity Company said.

"We have lost power supply due to the collapse of a tower on the Kiambere-Embakasi high voltage transmission line," the Kenya Electricity Company said in a statement on its Twitter account.

"Repairs are ongoing and our engineers are working to restore power."

The state-run Kenya Electricity Company is the country\'s sole energy distributor. Most of its electricity comes from a single source, The Kenya Power Company (KenGen).

Later in the day, the company issued a second statement saying power had been restored in Nairobi, West Kenya, the North Central Rift Valley and Southern Nyanza. They say they hope everything will be back up and running across the country soon. While widespread power outages are fairly common in Kenya, they do not normally affect the country\'s 54 million people.

One notable exception was the failure in May 2020 of a section of a high-voltage power line that carries electricity to Nairobi from the Olkalia geothermal plant, about 75km (45 miles) from the capital.

What is medium voltage switchgear?

Medium voltage switchgear essentially handles current and voltage fluctuations between 3KV and 36KV. The switchgear is ideal for a variety of functions including normal on/off applications, switching induced current, short circuit interrupts, switching capacitive current, and even specialized applications. This switchgear usually comes in a variety of types, including metal-enclosed indoor switchgear, metal-free switchgear, metal-enclosed outdoor switchgear, etc. Switching equipment is often critical for fault current transmission to interrupt current.

The air load break switch market distribution

The air load break switch market is geographically segmented into North America, Western Europe, Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, South America, Middle East and Africa. Asia-pacific was the largest region in the medium voltage switchgear market in 2021. The medium voltage switchgear market is still a competitive, innovative and decentralized pattern. Increased air load break switch manufacturing in new regions such as the Asia Pacific and the continued expansion of established players in new regions remain key drivers of fragmentation. Growing in this sector remains a key opportunity to gain air load break switch market share and competitive advantage.

Strict environmental and safety regulations in the manufacturing of air load break switch are hindering the growth of the market. The development of ecologically efficient switchgear has become the emerging trend of the medium voltage switchgear market. Ecologically efficient air load break switch is an alternative to the greenhouse gas sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) to improve ecological efficiency and reduce environmental impact. SF6 gas switch equipment is used as electrical insulation and current interrupt medium, which is extremely limited to greenhouse gases. In the air load break switch market, the use of ecological efficient switchgear is becoming more and more popular.

Power generation demand is expected to drive the air load break switch market. The development of industrialization and urbanization needs a continuous power supply, and the reliability of the power supply largely depends on the performance of the switch cabinet. Energy production is growing sustainably, demand is growing in both rural and urban areas, and the integration of protected air load break switch supplies is improving, which will drive industry growth.

Medium voltage switchgear air load break switch market trend

Electricity is likely to overtake oil in final consumption by 2040, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). Increasing regulatory efforts to promote clean energy, a sharp decline in conventional coal-fired power generation and global targets to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power generation by three-quarters by 2040 remain the main drivers of power generation growth. In addition, the IEA estimates that greater use of renewable energy in power generation and evolving air load break switch technologies such as hydrogen fuel and electricity remain the main prospects for bringing key developments such as electric vehicles to consumers around the world.

Therefore, the installation of small and medium-sized air load break switch grids on a global scale will be essential. These installations are also essential to meet the seasonal demand for additional power generation for residential and commercial applications. Currently, there is significant demand for additional power generation during peak hours and to maintain air load break switch operations during outages in regions such as the Asia Pacific.
