Extending the life of existing switchgear up to 25 years

Since the acquisition of Reyrolle in  2005, Siemens continues to support the Reyrolle installed base globally from Reyrolle’s original site at Hebburn in the North East of

England. An unrivalled portfolio of  products and services allows Siemens to offer complete original equipment manufacturer (OEM) capabilities that are fully supported by the latest manufacturing and research and development activities.


An estimated 250,000 Reyrolle products were manufactured between the 1930’s to present day. The combination of outstanding design and build quality means that a high proportion of these units are still in service. We are fully committed to supporting the Reyrolle installed base at every stage of the product life cycle. We provide our customers with the best opportunity to achieve the optimum cost effective long term strategy for their existing Reyrolle equipment.

These offerings include:

Switchgear extensions

We maintain full production capability to deliver extension equipment for medium voltage switchgear from 3.3kV to 33kV and high voltage air and gas insulated switchgear up to 550kV. These solutions are available for a large proportion of the Reyrolle installed base and use original designs, components and materials.

Retrofit solutions

Retrofit packages provide a financially viable high quality alternative to increase the life of existing switchgear. It is often the preferred option to avoid the heavy investment needed to replace whole switchboards and reduce outage times, crucial in industrial, manufacturing and processing facilities. This process minimises system disruption whilst enabling the upgrade of the switchgear, associated protection and drawings.


We can supply parts and components for both Reyrolle and Siemens switchgear products from minor essential switchgear components to the management of your entire spares requirement and inventory. Our comprehensive archive enables us provide the exact components you require, accurate to the latest revision status ensuring technical compatibility and safety of operation. As the OEM we hold all Reyrolle product drawings and technical detail in our extensive archives, ensuring you receive the technically correct component.

Technical services

We boast the most comprehensive pool of Reyrolle product experts and expertise anywhere in the world. From our highly skilled resource, we provide technical services covering such issues from general product support to safe decommissioning and disposal of any redundant switchgear.

Overhaul, refurbishment, repair and up-rating

Prolonging the working life of switchgear has become a necessity for users and network operators worldwide. We offer an overall service package covering full cradle to grave lifecycle management which covers rectification of deficiencies identified during maintenance inspections. We are able to provide these services for Siemens products and systems as well as cover technologies and systems from other equipment manufacturers.
