New P-Laser 600 kV HVDC- Fully Recyclable and the Most Powerful Cable Solution
Prysmian Group is ready to launch environment-friendly and very powerful cable solution, P-Laser 600 kV HVDC system which will give cost reductions of up to 30 percent per transmitted MW.
September 29, 2016
Prysmian Group is all set to launch a new breakthrough cable technology for the development of power transmission grids that will ensure better environmental sustainability, higher electrical performances, and lower costs. After the successful completion of development and testing of the whole new P-Laser 600 KV cable system for High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) applications. This milestone achievement follows the Group’s announcement in May this year of the successful type testing for the XLPE extruded cable solution at the same voltage level (600 kV DC) and is the third insulation technology made available by Prysmian for UHVDC (Ultra High Voltage DC) in less than 1 year.
P-Laser is the name given to the most advanced and innovative technology using HPTE (High Performance Thermoplastic Elastomer) that permits a more efficient cable production with lower environmental impact than traditional XLPE, where the manufacturing is done in a single and continuous process. This milestone innovation is ready to shape the progress of the entire HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) cable industry, reaching 3.5 GW per bipole, the highest power rating ever, with cost reductions of up to 30% per transmitted MW. It comes with an additional benefit of shorter production times and results in both reduced energy consumption as well as lower greenhouse gas emissions.
