Nexans receives certification for Dow Endurance cables

Dow Inside alliance partners, Dow Electrical & Telecommunications (Dow E&T), and Nexans’ Energy Cable division in North America, have acheived CSA International certification for power cables manufactured by Nexans using Dow E&T’s advanced performance TR-XLPE, DOW ENDURANCE™ HFDC-4202.

The certification covers four separate cable insulation systems for medium voltage (MV) power distribution cables rated for 15kV to 46kV with an operating temperature range of 90°C to -40°C.

Compliance with the CSA C68.5 requirements reinforces the benefit to utilities of specifying cables that meet high performance standards.

“Our industry demands solutions that extend the life of the power system and demonstrate consistent reliability over time,” added Dave Hawker, Vice President and General Manager, Nexans’ Energy Cable division in North America. “Achieving CSA clearly exhibits our commitment to using the best materials to produce quality cables that will support utilities for years to come.”

As Dow Inside alliance partners, the intent of Nexans and Dow is to reduce the total life cycle cost of cable ownership for their end use customers while responding to the constantly evolving system requirements of the power transmission and distribution industry.
