Nexans wins in consortium with Pirelli and ABB a contract to supply energy cables to Hong Kong
The contract, which runs until June 30, 2003 (with an optional extension period to June 30, 2004) will see Nexans, Pirelli and ABB supplying 132 kV cables of various cross-sections with related accessories and jointing services. This Bulk Agreement is to replace oil filled cables with environmentally friendly and reliable XLPE cables, as well as meeting the ever increasing power demand between the years 2001 to 2004.
The consortium has had to meet the very stringent quality, technical and environmental criteria set, as well as the high emphasis on the shortest delivery times.
Manufacturing has already begun, as the first lengths of cables have to arrive in Hong Kong at the end of November 2001.
