Schneider Electric helps the Gibraltar Electricity Authority manage reliability and supply for the territory through substation automation.
The Gibraltar Electricity Authority (GEA) is an H.M. Government of Gibraltar Authority and the electricity utility in Gibraltar. It is responsible for the generation, distribution and supply of electricity to all users in the Territory.
Background to installation
In 2013 GEA’s high voltage electrical network comprised of approximately 97 substations of almost exclusively Schneider Electric equipment and protection relays.
