PEX-kabler for høy spenning

  • Disse kablene ble opprinnelig utviklet som høyspente jordkabler, men brukes stadig oftere også for å erstatte oljefylte sjøkabler.

Til Ormen Lange-feltet har Nexans Norway levert verdens første 420 kV PEX sjøkabel.

Since the late 1960s we have been developing an entire range of XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) insulated cables for high voltage-transmission.

This kind of cable consists of a stranded copper or aluminum conductor with an extruded insulation system which is further protected by a metallic shield and an outer sheath. In submarine applications, the cable is normally designed with a lead sheath and outer steel-wire armor

XLPE cables are predominantly used in underground networks, but  are gradually replacing traditional paper-insulated, fluid-impregnated cables undersea, as well.

They have several distinct advantages:


  • Flexibility, lightness and strength
  • No need for an auxiliary fluid-pressure system
  • Low maintenance compared to fluid-impregnated cables
  • Simpler accessories
