New medium voltage cable made for the Nordic climate

Completely water blocked and circular in shape for a long service life and easy ploughing.

Axclight2013-11-04 – The new Axclight TT is completely water blocked and circular in shape. It is completely water blocked in order to exclude moisture, prolonging the service life of the cable. The cable has a circular structure with filler strands, making it easier to plough and press, and making it highly resistant to impact and indentation. Meanwhile, it is easy to strip and bend. What this means is shorter installation time.

Nexans cables for power distribution are developed for the Nordic climate and can be plowed, even where the ground conditions are difficult.

– Our Nordic climate is a real challenge for cables buried underground. Not only do they have to cope with temperatures as low as -20°C – they must also be able to withstand the tough Nordic terrain, says Mats Klarén, Marketing Manager U&O.

In addition to the new design for long life, cost-effective and reliable installation, Nexans new medium voltage cable is also equipped with a sheath of HDPE to minimize the risk of screen failure.

–To prove that it works, we recently carried out sheath tests covering 2.5 million metres in areas with difficult ground conditions. Our new medium voltage cable Axclight TT was developed with all this in mind, says Mats Klarén.
