Energy and Data Cables for the Wind Power Sector

Nexans at HUSUMwind 2007, from 18 to 22 September, stand 1C03

Hanover,  July 12, 2007 – Nexans Deutschland Industries GmbH & Co. KG will be presenting their diverse range of products and turnkey cable solutions for a fast deployment of wind power installations and infrastructure networks at the HUSUMwind 2007 trade fair (18 to 22 September). The cables and wires can be used for almost all requirements – from data transfer across the connection of complete wind parks to the high-voltage network.

Hardwearing Cables for Generator and Nacelle
Nexans’ rubber-insulated, 1 kV and medium-voltage, torsion- resistant cables were designed for heavy use within the nacelle. They can deal with twisting movements of ±1000 ° over many years, without any problem. The 1kV-rubbercables are due to different customer demands abrasion and oil resistant,  UL-approved and torsion proven at -40°C. In addition to these energy transfer loop cables, control cables are also offered with a normal and halogen-free, flame-retardant finish. In addition, Nexans offers cable with high quality and long-lasting silicon shielding. Since they are suitable for continuous use at a maximum temperature of 180°C, they also ensure reliable insulation against high temperatures coming from the generator. They have proved their use in the climatic chamber and in long-standing practical application. All cables are available on drums, cut according to customer requirements or prefabricated with the required plugs.

Lightweight Solutions for Tower Cabling
Nexans’ 1 kV halogen-free aluminium cables are particularly suitable for efficient tower cabling, as their conductor has the same electrical properties as copper, yet enables a clear cost saving and weight advantage in installation. In addition, like other products for the wind power sector, the cables resist the changing site conditions.

Energy Transport Ashore and in Water
With a broad range of medium and high-voltage cables, Nexans offers relevant solutions for wind farm energy transfer, whether it is for linking individual wind power installation to a central nodal point, or connecting the wind park to the grid entry point. Thanks to decades of experience in the submarine cable sector, Nexans offers entirely proven solutions for offshore wind farms, being one of the leading manufacturers in this sector.

Versatile Equipment for Connection Technology
The offer is rounded off with extensive equipment for connection technology – from the plug to fittings to cable bushings. In addition, in the field of high-voltage submarine cable, Nexans has the relevant equipment, in order to install cable quickly, safely and efficiently.

Wires and Active Components for Data Transfer
Nexans offers active LAN systems and various kinds of fibre optic cables for data transfer in the wind power installation, cross-linking and/or central regulation and monitoring tasks. These elements owe their robustness not least to the Group’s experience with solutions for industrial requirements. Therefore the network components offered exhibit high levels of reliability and breakdown immunity. Copper-based control and bus cables are also available.

Nexans will demonstrate a number of cable samples and active components at HUSUMwind 2007. In addition, the stand team will be available to prospective customers for questions about the entire range of products. You will find Nexans Deutschland Industries GmbH & Co. KG on Stand 1C03.
