Medium-voltage power and feeder cables

  • MV power and feeder cables6/10, 12/20 or 18/30 KV depending on country
  • These cables  carry power to substations along metro lines
  • Special solutions include
    • Ethylene Propylene Rubber or Silicone insulations for flexibility
    • special XLPE insulations that can withstand water, oil, heat, stress and extreme temperatures, while meeting Low Fire Hazard (LFH) cable requirements
  • New designs offer
    • non-hygroscopic characteristics
    •  direct burial for underground-to-surface transitions
    •  core ceramifiable cables to keep alarms and essential services operating during a fire.

 

Nexans is upgrading MV cables for the London Underground to satisfy the power needs of new vehicles. We power subway systems in Paris, Berlin and Hamburg, and the MAGLEV Transrapid in Shanghai. Recent successes include Athens, Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Santiago, and Istanbul, where we provided 200 km of 35 KV LFH cables.

Low-voltage cables

LV trailing cables 0,6/1 kV in two sheath design is designed for special application condition in wind turbines. The construction is torsion resistance by free hanging max. 100 m. The cables are specified for medium mechanical stress and for operation under permanent influence of seawater and outdoor usage.

Medium-voltage cables

  • Onshore underground single-core cables (typically 33 kV) connect the rows of wind turbines and, in parallel, links them to an onshore substation
  • Offshore cost-efficientsubmarine 3-core copper cables with integrated fiber optic elements and customized armor designs to link the turbines.

 High-voltage cables for transmission

  • Onshore AC transmission: cables ranging from 60 kV to 500 kV, XLPE insulated, are used for power transmission from the onshore windpark substa...
