Medium-voltage fixed installation cables

  • Medium-voltage fixed installation cablesConnecting the loop cable and bottom of the tower. These medium voltage cables with aluminium conductor are rubber-insulated or XLPE and halogen-free.

 Nexans developed a specific MV cable for Spain’s Alstom Ecotècnia.

 

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

Our two leading types of medium-voltage cable are XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) and EPR (Ethylene Propylene Rubber). The former is used worldwide, while the latter is mainly for selected markets.

From a design point of view, medium-voltage cables are of three types:

  • single-core cable,
  • three single-core cables laid-up,
  • three-core cable.

Nexans cables are custom designed to meet your high performance standards.

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.
