Custom Designed xlpe medium voltage cables


In addition to standard medium voltage cables, we can also design and supply customized MV cable products developed for your specific applications. Our customized cable solutions provide variations around a variety of parameters developed and manufactured, including:

Cross-sectional area: generally 35mm2 up to 100mm2

Number of cores: generally one or three

Solid or stranded aluminium conductors: for applications requiring a lighter cable weight, also often more economical due to lower aluminium prices.

Stranded copper conductors: for applications requiring a smaller overall diameter and higher transmitting properties.



Bonded or strippable out semi-conducting layer

Water tightness: longitudinal, longitudinal + quasi-radial, longitudinal + radial

Insulation layers (conductor screen, insulation and insulation screen): XLPE, which is more commonly used for MV cables, or EPR which is more flexible and often better suited to marine and offshore applications.  

Metallic screen: to nullify the electric field outside the MV cable. Concentric copper wire screens, Aluminium foil laminate, or extruded lead alloy sheath.

Twisted three-core cable or triplex

Armouring: for mechanical protection. Aluminium wire armoured for single-core cables, Galvanised steel wire armour, strip or tape.

Tapes: Separator tapes to facilitate peeling, water-swellable tapes to prevent water ingress, Conductive tape for core binding.

Outer Sheath: compounds with various properties, tailored to the specific application’s requirements, including resistance to oils, greases, rodents, termites, UV and flame, as well as zero halogen emissions.
