The Tavrida Electric substation solution contains both the recloser and the mounting kit in the same box to save on manufacturing costs and solve logistical problems. The kit is comprised of a set of steel components with hot-dip galvanized coating and no welded parts. To accommodate a wide range of substation arrangements, the mounting dimensions and height of the apparatus can be easily adjusted. In this way, the need of additional adaptation kits is completely eliminated.
