Low-voltage fixed installation cables

  • Low-voltage fixed installation cablesCopper can be single or multicore, with EMC screening.
  • Although aluminum singlecore are larger, they weigh half as much, making them cheaper, and easier to handle and install in high towers.

 

Nexans has supplied a wide range of LV installation cables to Alstom Wind, Nordex, Siemens, etc.

 

These cables are part of our Windlink® solutions designed by Nexans to respond the very demanding expectations of the wind turbine market.

A low level of opacity of smoke produced and acidity of the effluent are basic criteria in the selection of materials that, in the event of fire, make it possible to reduce the presence of dangerous gases and to facilitate escape. It is essential that the production of opaque smoke and harmful emissions is as low as possible during a fire.

Nexans’ offer enables to:

  • Significantly delay the propagation of a fire, thus gaining precious time for evacuation and fire-fighting
  • Reduce to a minimum opaque smoke and acid gases, the prime cause of fire-related deaths, and damage to equipment and structures
  • A wide range fitting the different country regulations, building types and electrical applications.

Low-voltage cables

Cables in the Wind Industry, especially for wind turbines and for loop installation on the top of the tower are facing severe torsion constraints due to the rotation of the nacelle.
Due to the minimum 20 years life time of wind turbines, Nexans brings an appropriate answer to all O.E.M requirements and specifications.
Torsion tests simulate a 20-year life time in a turbine. To meet this requirement, cables have to comply with a complete test which depends on customers’ specification.
Nexans has developed low voltage loop cables (up to 1kV) that reliably transmit energy produced in the generator to the transformer, usually located at the base of the tower. They come in Low-Smoke Zero-Halogen (LSZH) versions, and are also oil, abrasion, UV and ozone-resistant.

Distribution cables
Outdoor Energy cables/LV underground power cables

Medium and low-voltage cables (1kV to 60 kV) are used in the basic distribution network that brings power from high-voltage substations to cities and remote areas.

To provide this needed power for change, Nexans has been leading the way in new materials and designs for distribution cables and networks. We also master installation techniques in some of the toughest environments imaginable, including submarine, aerial and dense urban conditions.

Accessories, too, are key elements in any powergrid. That is why we custom design joints, terminations and connections to user's specifications. We offer a full range of standard products, and have the logistics to deliver turnkey projects worldwide.
