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.

From humble beginnings, power distribution systems have grown increasingly complex: Edison's 1882 station in New York City served six square miles, while today's networks cover entire cities and regions, providing the tools and conveniences of modern life.

Medium and low-voltage cables (1kV to 60kV) are used in the basic distribution network that brings power from high-voltage substations to cities and remote areas. To provide this needed power for change, Nexans has been leading the way in new materials and designs for distribution cables and networks. We also master installation techniques in some of the toughest environments imaginable, including submarine, aerial and dense urban conditions.
