SciBreak is moving into new facilities in Kallhäll north of Stockholm. The new facilities comprise 100 m2 in the ground floor for test setup and workshop and 100 m2 office is available on the upper floor.
SCiBreak will,together with the Swedish TSO Svenska Kraftnät and the Belgian university KU Leuven, carry out a development project — HIBREAK — to develop and verify a high-speed DC circuit breaker module for 40 kV, 10 kA with operation time below 5 ms. The project runs during 2017-2018 and includes testing for Proof Of Concept for validation of SCiBreak’s DC circuit breaker technology.
The project will be funded by Innoenergy, the Swedish Energy Agency and Svenska Kraftnät.
