Wind mill cables up to 33 kV
APAR manufactures a broad range of cables ranging from cables for renewable energy products to those for terrestrial and offshore wind markets. We manufacture cables for applications ranging from the nacelle and tower of the wind turbine where electricity is created to the step-up transformer where the electricity is transferred and to the collection system as well.
The range includes cables for the entire spectrum: from the substation to the power grid.Aluminum cables and wires are gaining popularity for their reduced weight (70 percent lighter than copper and nearly three times cheaper than copper conductors). They are also preferred for their ability to perform comparably to their copper counterparts with a minimum increase of the cable’s or wire’s diameter.We have expanded our aluminum cable offerings for the wind sector with additional single and multi-conductor power cables.
|Application||Wind cables in the wind turbine’s nacelle place extreme torsional stress on power cables. APAR cables are rigorously tested and can meet this challenge.We also manfuacture power cables for vertical lifts/elevators in wind turbines as aids in climbing up tower walls and accessing the nacelle.|
