In response to a fast-growing need for energy and to government subsidies, the renewable energy industry in general, and the solar energy sector in particular, have been successfully developing new technologies to capture energy from our environment in order to supply ‘green’ power to local and national networks. As solar cable specialists, we offer innovative solutions on projects which rely on both sustained operational performance with minimum maintenance and an efficient initial set up. These cover the full range of cable interconnections between the solar panels and the other components of the photovoltaic system.
Our solar cables can be found on some of the largest and most prestigious solar farms across the United Kingdom, including Belectric’s Landmead 46mW plant, Forrester's largest floating solar farm, and four SunEdison solar farms with a collective output of 60mW. Our complete solar cable solutions have also contributed to the completion of some of Africa’s largest solar generation plants.
COMPREHENSIVE PORTFOLIO OF SOLAR CABLES
Our solar cables are manufactured in accordance with various British and International Standards. These include EN50618 standard solar cable covering a range of applications typical of rooftop solar installations and of solar farms such as providing the interconnection of photovoltaic power generation systems, including the solar panel arrays. This robust outdoor cable range is designed to withstand severe environmental conditions and degradation from UV light exposure. We also supply a wide range of bare copper conductors, low voltage, and medium voltage cables connecting the solar installation to substations and to the power grid, including DNO-approved cables.
EN 50618 SOLAR CABLESAll our photovoltaic cables meet the requirements of EN 50618, the standard which is superseding the solar cable approvals of PV1-F cable from TÜV Rheinland Group. As with the TUV certified cables, the EN50618 solar cable range have undergone a rigorous manufacturing and testing audit programme to deliver a quality cable with an anticipated lifespan of circa 25 years. This is consistent with the quality standards we set for all of our products.
