Gas Insulated Switchgear
CHEM was established in 1956 in Taiwan and became Public company in 1994. The first GIS was manufactured and dispatched by them in 1987. CHEM has supplied over 5000 Bays in last 24 years and are leader in Taiwan Market enjoying over 70% of Market Share.
CHEM has a strong technology base, evident by their extensive type testing record. CHEM have carried out the Type Test on all range of GIS upto 500kV at CESI/KEMA and also on GCB upto 765kV. In-house Test facilities are also available to carry out Routine and Type tests to comply with IEC and ANSI standards
CHEM has highly vertically integrated manufacturing facilities with over 90% of the components being made in house. In fact, these facilities not only caters their own requirement of GIS components but also meets the need of some other GIS manufacturers like JAEPS, ABB, Areva, Siemens etc .

Efficient arc extinguishing technique offers enhanced life to breaker with 20 operations at full rated short circuit current.
Requires half the space of traditional design.
Robust operating mechanism offers almost 30 years of maintenance free operating life. Metallic enclosures are designed and tested for the stringent requirement of internal gas pressure developed under internal arc fault conditions to offer highest safety to the operating personnel.
Well-established quality assurance system ensures higher reliability, safety and availability of the system. Environment Friendly - Low SF6 leakage rate (0.1% per annum)
The operating mechanism is lubricated for its long life and virtually needs no maintenance. With low leakage rate, there is no need for any maintenance either in the internal assemblies or by way of gas monitoring and refilling.
