High Voltage and Medium Voltage feeder cables
- HV and MV feeder cables ( between 110 and 220 kV for HV, and 6/10, 12/20 or 18/30 kV for MV, depending on country) carry power to and from substations along railways and metro lines.
- Special solutions include Ethylene Propylene Rubber or Silicone insulations for flexibility, and special XLPE insulations that can withstand water, oil, heat, stress and extreme temperatures, while meeting Low Fire Hazard (LFH) cable requirements thanks to newest developed sheathing compounds.
- New designs offer non-hygroscopic characteristics, direct burial for underground-to-surface transitions
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.
