The laying and installation of extra-high-voltage cables is a special challenge. The diameters and weights of these large cables require a completely different laying method than for cables up to 110 kV. The cables, which can measure up to 1000 m in length, often weigh up to 55 tons in total.
Other particularities include the vertical shafts, which sometimes reach deep into the ground, and the change of direction of the cables to the horizontal. We place our experience at your disposal in finding solutions to these tasks.
Vetter is your partner for 220 to 550 kV cable systems that are mainly installed in tunnels. Our services in this area comprise cooperation from the beginning of the planning phase, engineering, delivery of the cable attachment systems as well as the machinery and equipment required for laying the cables.
