MV underground and submarine cables

Underground power cable

  • XLPE cables with copper or aluminum conductors are becoming the most widely used cables in power networks
  • They contribute to improving the reliability of the Utilities networks.

Nexans provided MV submarine interconnections between 80 turbines and the central transformer in the world’s largest offshore windpark: Horns Rev, Denmark.

Outdoor Energy cables

Our two leading types of medium-voltage cable are XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) and EPR (Ethylene Propylene Rubber). The former is used worldwide, while the latter is mainly for selected markets.

From a design point of view, medium-voltage cables are of three types:

  • single-core cable,
  • three single-core cables laid-up,
  • three-core cable.

Nexans cables are custom designed to meet your high performance standards.

Submarine Medium Voltage cables
Outdoor Energy cables

Submarine cables are used to link islands, between platforms, submarine installations, across fjords and over the sea for hundreds of kilometres. High quality and reliability are extremely important design criteria for Nexans submarine cables and umbilicals.

From 6 to 525 kV

Nexans offers a complete range of submarine power cables, from 6 to 525 kV.
