Smart Grid: Secure and highly available solutions from Nexans for energy supply company communication networks
The technical requirements placed on energy networks are currently changing faster than ever before, presenting energy providers with huge challenges in the process. The main driving forces behind these changes are smart grid applications.
Equipping regional railways with a modern infrastructure previously required different cables for control and signalling equipment, low-voltage power supply, network-based electronic interlocking systems as well as language, data and GSM-R services. DuoTrack® – the all-inone system solution from Nexans – provides an alternative solution that is faster, easier, more economical and even safer.
Flexibility with a broader application range
Maximum fire protection in the construction and energy industry is also of economic importance. According to Nexans, these requirements call for improved fire retardant cables that not only demonstrate greater mechanical strength, but are also halogen-free and equally suitable for underground laying as existing cables.
Halogen-free, flame-resistant and highly flexible
Thanks to its flexibility, the MOTIONLINE Rheyflex® XH/XCH/XH Power range allows much easier installation and offers further advantages in comparison with other halogen-free control cables
Nexans Service contract in modules for paper and XLPE insulated cables
The Machinery Business Unit of Nexans has developed a new LASER Cross Welder UNICROSS 170L which joins metal strips to allow fully continuous production of cables and tubes.
Saving space in city centers: Medium voltage superconductor cables can replace high voltage power transmission
Achieving a reliable electric power supply within densely populated areas by employing efficient medium voltage superconductor cable systems was subject of a study conducted by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) on behalf of the German utility RWE. Together with superconductor cable specialists from Nexans and other project partners, it was investigated whether the electric power supply with medium voltage superconductor cables in city centers offers technical and economical advantages compared to conventional high voltage technology.

Nexans Deutschland presents its low-voltage hybrid cable of the type X-LINKED™ for 1 kV distribution networks
Power networks of the future need to be in-creased operational, controllable and adjustable. Nexans, for this reason, made it its mission to also develop a cable for low-voltage distribution networks, with which energy providers can flexibly expand their information network and thus ensure that subsequent access to service entrance areas is possible.
Following a long tradition of development, design and production of special machines for cable and pipe manufacturing at Nexans Germany in Hannover PL & T has established a competency center in Hanover providing a portfolio from special machinery, automation, welding technology and technical services.
Network operators are facing increasing demands regarding power and data transmission. Many energy supply companies, network companies and public utility services are now considering what the smart grid might look like.
The construction of offshore wind power plants is currently one of the biggest challenges in the field of regenerative energy.
Nexans supports its customers by offering a wide range of products and services covering every aspect of infield and platform-connecting cabling for offshore wind farms.
Everyone knows that cables and leads are used to transmit power or data. The fact that they can also be used for warming and heating, however, is less well-known.
The new M630-1000 medium-voltage connector covering a wide range of cable cross-section, rounds off the high end of the M series offered by Nexans Power Accessories Germany. Just four Nexans connectors include almost any cross-section between 16 mm² and 1,000 mm².
The superconductor-specialists at Nexans Deutschland GmbH demonstrated a remarkable technical feat at the end of last year: Their successful test of a superconductor cable rated at 3.2 kA demonstrated a transmission power of 110 MVA at the 20 kV level.
Nexans Deutschland is offering various new products for operators of medium voltage networks: special medium voltage cables for power plants or other buildings at risk of fire, cables for complicated installation or environmental conditions or open-stranded cables with integrated microtubes for fibre-optic cables which can be blown in.
Temporary site cables are energy cables used to connect equipment in a high-voltage network temporarily, e.g. as a bypass during construction or repair and servicing work.
An increasingly decentralised supply of power, higher power flows and the present backlog of investment in equipment will require stronger adaptations to the power network in the coming years. In this context, high short-circuit currents play an essential role.
