Read more on how Temporary Site Cables can help maintain power supply during alteratoin work on the high-voltage grid
Nexans manufactured and installed a 17-km 500 kV underground power cable circuit between Shibo and Sanlin substations in Shanghai, the first intra-city cable of this size using XLPE insulation.
Siemens was contracted by Isagen to install turbines and the electrical system for a new dam. A qualified Nexans-trained supervisor made sure all cables and accessories were safely installed and fully certified.
The power grid was aging, and there was no chance of doing new civil engineering to open a new corridor; meanwhile power demands were sky-rocketing.
TRANSCO (Abu Dhabi Transmission and Dispatch Company) ordered an HV submarine connection between Shuweihat power station and Delma Island in Abu Dhabi. This project avoided building a fossil fuel power station on the island.
To meet the energy demands of a million-plus city, Nexans laid the largest
and heaviest 420 kV cable that has ever been installed.
