Custom Designed xlpe medium voltage cables

Date2019-06-04

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.

Bedding

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.
