Since the 1970s, MV and LV power lines have been buried in urban, rural and industrial sites. Today there are a growing number of projects with segments of underground transmission lines in the 22-33kV range.
Many factors favor underground solutions: regulatory issues, public demand due to electromagnetic impact, aesthetic concerns, the narrowing gap between underground and aerial construction costs, and a new generation of safe and reliable cables.
Installing underground transmission lines requires a host of competencies in a cable manufacturer to serve the complex demands of utilities, contractors and installers
Some of the challenges and concerns you are faced with :
- Growing power demand and need to upgrade or replace existing equipment
- Integrating renewables, distances between producers and consumers
- Congested areas and limited rights of way
