UK Power Networks Cable (UKPN)

11kV triplex Cable & 33kV Cable

UK Power Networks (UKPN) is the Distribution Network Operator responsible for the power lines across London, the South-East and East of England. Owning and maintaining the power lines connecting millions of homes across over 11,000 square miles, they operate part of the National Grid along with the other DNOs including SSE, SPEN, NGED, ENW and NPG. Any connection from the existing grid to new sub-main developments in an area operated by UK Power Networks must use UKPN specification cables manufactured by G81-approved suppliers.

UKPN Cable Voltage Ratings

UKPN medium voltage cables are provided in two voltages, for different parts of the grid network. The 6.35/11kV cable is provided in triplex formation - three single cores wound together for three-phase power supply. The higher voltage 19/33kV cable is provided as a single core cable.

UKPN Single Core and Triplex Cable Datasheets

Our PDF technical datasheets provide the information required to confirm suitability for installation. The cable sizes, including screen sizes, are tightly controlled under the UKPN specification - they will differ from other DNOs. The electrical characteristics are outlined in the datasheet but where additional information is required, please ask.

UKPN Triplex Cable in stock

Eland Cables' range of DNO-approved cables including the UKPN 11kV single core triplex cable, held in stock for next-day delivery. The 19/33kV cables are also available on short manufacturing lead-times. This immediate availability, with the ability to supply cut-to-length orders, means ICPs are able to access the cables they need on short notice.

We also supply low voltage waveform cables on the same next-day basis. Our DNO-approved cables form part of the wider range of Medium Voltage cables for power networks for NERS contractors, IDNOs and private grids. These cables are available in voltages starting at 3.3/6kV and covering 6/10kV6.35/11kV12/20kV18/30kV and 19/33kV. Please speak to our DNO cable experts for more information.
