Nexans has achieved a major success in a global tender process carried out by a one of the biggest utility companies in the world, securing contracts worth over €190 million to supply medium voltage (MV) and low voltage (LV) cables. Over the next two years, Nexans will support the development of the client’s electricity distribution networks in Europe and Latin America.
Several Nexans units across the world were involved in the 2018-2020 tender for 12/20 kilovolt (kV) MV and 0.6/1 kV LV cables. The Group’s local presence was one of the advantages of the offer as the cables will be delivered by Nexans entities in Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Peru, Italy and Romania. In addition to meeting the technical specifications, these units also commited to stringent environmental sustainability standards, with ISO 14067 certifications.
In Italy, Nexans will deliver its new patented Powerboost MV cable technology. By using a patented thermoplastic insulation formulation, the cables require less energy to be produced (compared to XLPE cables) and can be easily recycled.
The Nexans Group is facilitating energy transition and the growth of data by serving four main business areas: building and territories (including utilities, smart grids, emobility), high voltage and projects (covering offshore wind farms, submarine interconnections, land high voltage), telecom and data (covering data transmission, telecom networks, hyperscale data centres, LAN), and industry and solutions (including renewables, transportation, oil and gas, automation, and others).
