Nexans gets order from Italian utility for 6,000 km of power distribution cable

Nexans has been awarded a contract to supply a leading Italian utility with 6,000 km of low- and medium-voltage power distribution cables and services.

A press release said that the cables will be manufactured at the Nexans plant in Battipaglia, Italy, using 100% guaranteed low-carbon aluminum that can reduce the greenhouse gas emissions by 35% to 50%, depending on the products. The cable will be used in underground power lines that are designed to be more resilient to the increasingly frequent extreme climate phenomena that affect power distribution infrastructure worldwide. It will be supplied over a period of 16 months.

Being part of this initiative “places Nexans at the very heart of decarbonized electrification in Italy and in Europe and demonstrates the commitment of our two groups to the world energy transition,” said Elyette Roux, vice president of power distribution cables and accessories at Nexans.

Nexans will also supply the company’s ULTRACKER DRUMS solution that will assist the utility in tracking and managing the delivery of their cables on site, enabling real-time geolocation of cable drums thanks to edge-computing technologies, and providing unique advantages such as shipments follow-up, theft detection, remote monitoring, residual cable length management, and a streamlined drum pick-up.
