High voltage underground systems
High Voltage cable systems form an integral part of electricity transmission and distribution networks throughout the world. Prysmian Group, with its long and highly experienced history, provides complete range of products and services required for all High Voltage cable systems.
The ever-increasing demand for secure and reliable power supply, the possibility to exploit renewable energy sources far from load centres and the integration of electricity markets require an increase in power transmission capacity. HVDC cable systems are the most viable solution for power transfer between asyncronous networks and for long distance transmission lines also in hybrid configuration. In meshed AC networks HVDC systems provide controllable bulk power transmission capacity without increase in short circuit current levels.
