A reliable partner for global power transmission cable projects
Our power transmission cable capabilities encompass large-scale power transmission projects to the remotest parts of the world, where accuracy of execution from cable quantity and exact lengths to importation paperwork and local transportation is critical. Our ability to supply this range of products on short lead times and production runs makes us the partner of choice to utilities and their contractors for many of their urgent maintenance requirements.
In addition to power transmission cables, we supply a comprehensive range of utility-approved cable accessories, components, and ancilliary products, including the live line
tapping and earthing systems that the United Kingdom's National Grid selects and trusts for their operational reliability in safety critical environments.
Our cable solutions for the power transmission industry also extend to temporary power providers. Some of our cables are specifically designed for use in generators and uninterruptable power supply (UPS) systems operating in challenging conditions. For instance, our cables are relied upon during key public events around the world, such as the Sochi Winter Olympics, where they provided temporary power for outdoor competitions.
