            Electrical Energy solution: Biosco MV/LV prefabricated substations




            Value proposition

            Main drivers

            • Growth of MV electrical distribution network in new economies.
            • Increase of network quality based on underground network and prefabricated substations.


            Value proposition
            • For the End-user (Utilities), compared to traditional civil works substations, prefabricated substations offer:

               - Much better safety for the public and operators: Compliance with the IEC standards.
               - 20% cost savings: Factory assembled and tested.
               - 30% time savings: plug and play solution delivered ready to be connected.

            • For the partners, they offer:

               - Market differenciation: Compliance with IEC standards, Schneider Electric brand image.
               - 30% cost savings: No engineering costs, already carried out by Schneider Electric.
               - 2 times faster time to market: immediate availability of Biosco.

            Differenciation factors

            • Business model through partners.
            • Adaptation to meet local needs: local transformer, climatic conditions, landscape integration, etc.
