Low-voltage fixed installation cables

  • Low-voltage fixed installation cablesCopper can be single or multicore, with EMC screening.
  • Although aluminum singlecore are larger, they weigh half as much, making them cheaper, and easier to handle and install in high towers.

 

Nexans has supplied a wide range of LV installation cables to Alstom Wind, Nordex, Siemens, etc.

 

These cables are part of our Windlink® solutions designed by Nexans to respond the very demanding expectations of the wind turbine market.

Low-voltage cables

Cables in the Wind Industry, especially for wind turbines and for loop installation on the top of the tower are facing severe torsion constraints due to the rotation of the nacelle.
Due to the minimum 20 years life time of wind turbines, Nexans brings an appropriate answer to all O.E.M requirements and specifications.
Torsion tests simulate a 20-year life time in a turbine. To meet this requirement, cables have to comply with a complete test which depends on customers’ specification.
Nexans has developed low voltage loop cables (up to 1kV) that reliably transmit energy produced in the generator to the transformer, usually located at the base of the tower. They come in Low-Smoke Zero-Halogen (LSZH) versions, and are also oil, abrasion, UV and ozone-resistant.
