Higher voltages and lower losses – these were just two of the topics that arose in lectures and discussions when Nexans showcased its innovations at CIGRE 2016 in August.
HVDC (high voltage direct current) power links are now able to utilize Nexans state-of-the-art XLPE cables that are qualified to 320 kV, while type testing at 525 kV has just been successfully completed.
Nexans will be attending CIGRE 2016 which will take place from August 21 to August 26, in Paris.
Energinet.dk, the Danish Transmission System Operator (TSO), has signed a framework agreement with Nexans for the delivery of around 500 km of high voltage (HV) cables.
Western Power Distribution has integrated two superconducting fault current limiters (sFCL) from Nexans into Birmingham’s power grid.
