High-voltage energy cables
- Nexans manufactures paper-insulated and XLPE-insulated cables with copper conductors of up to 2,500 mm2 for voltages up to 525 kV AC for all onshore applications.
- Our composite solutions add fiber optic cable for secure telecommunications.
Nexans was recently awarded a 380 kV XLPE underground cable system for the 4 km-long high-voltage AC system for the Yanbu Refinery in Saudi Arabia (an Aramco/Conoco Phillips project). Chosen because of our many successfully 400 kV cable systems in the Middle East and elsewhere, Nexans will supply cables, terminations, joints, and provide installation services for construction and commissioning.
