Our two leading types of medium-voltage cable are XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) and EPR (Ethylene Propylene Rubber). The former is used worldwide, while the latter is mainly for selected markets.

From a design point of view, medium-voltage cables are of three types:

  • single-core cable,
  • three single-core cables laid-up,
  • three-core cable.

Nexans cables are custom designed to meet your high performance standards.

MV substation power cables
Outdoor Energy cables

Substations or power transformation systems are a connecting ring among the several levels of tension.

The power requirements of cities and the big inhabited areas are continuosly increasing. The distribution systems are more and more great. Often, the electric provisioning through MV cables, on part of the city is no longer economically bearable due to a high power requirement. Therfore it's necessary to carry out transformation systems able to link HV to MV rates.

Nexans can serve this market with its high-technology products.
