  • BS 6480
  • AS/NZS 1972

BARE ALUMINIUM OVERHEAD CONDUCTORS

Utilities/ Transmission Companies

An extensive range of aerial conductors for energy transmission and distribution. These products are available in a selection of alloys and constructions to provide the best mechanical performance and current carrying capacity for any particular application. Benefits include high strength to weight ratio, excellent corrosion resistance and the ability to operate continuously at high temperatures without any mechanical detriment.
  • AAG – All aluminium conductor
  • AAAC – All aluminium alloy conductor
  • ACSR – Aluminium conductor steel reinforced.  Aluminium clad steel option
  • ACSS- Aluminium conductor steel supported: high temperature, low sag conductor
  • ACSSITW – Trapezoidal ACSS: operates up to 250˚ C providing high ampacity and low sag
  • AS 1531
  • BS 215
  • ASTM/Canadian specs

OPTICAL GROU ND WIRE TECHNOLOGY

Utilities

The dual functioning OPGW range is designed for installation on top of transmission and distribution line towers. OPGW offers ground wire capabilities as well as providing a medium for the transmission of voice, video or data signals. This technology allows energy transmission companies a means of protection and control of the transmission line for the utilities’ own voice and data communications, providing a high-speed fibre interconnection between cities.

  • Single and multi-layer aluminium wires, aluminium alloy wires, aluminium clad steel wires
  • Central aluminium buffer tube
  • Single optical fibre or fibre bundles
  • OPGW – Optical ground wire cable: overhead power lines
  • OPPC – Optical phase conductors: alternative to OPGW, where optical fibres are incorporated into power lines phase conductor
  • ADSS – All-dielectric self-supporting: where fibre optic cables are installed in addition to existing conductors on overhead power line
  • MASS – Metal-armoured self-supporting: alternative to OPGW but not designed to bear the electric load an OPGW would need to withstand in case of lightning strike
