Composite Technology working on transmission lines in Poland

Irvine, Calif., July 5, 2011 — Composite Technology Corp. installed a 110kV line using ACCC conductor for PGE Dystrybucja Bialystok in Poland.

The composite conductor was supplied by Lamifil using ACCC core supplied by CTC Cable Corp.

The 1.25-mile line, which is part of a transmission line that runs between Bielsk Podlaski and Hajnowka (an urbanized area in Eastern Poland), was strung with ACCC Helsinki conductor on existing steel towers.

This conductor was selected in preference to a larger ACSR conductor due to the superior sag characteristics and higher capacity of the smaller ACCC conductor which allowed the existing towers to be used The ACSR solution would have required new, higher towers to be constructed. The installation was completed on June 22.
