Lamifil to supply 700 km of ACCC® Conductor to reinforce Dutch high voltage backbone

“Beter Benutten Bestaande 380kV net” (Making Better Use of the Existing 380kV grid) is an ambitious project initiated by transmission system operator TenneT in 2019 to significantly scale up the capacity of the Dutch high voltage grid. Not by building new lines, but by replacing existing conductors with next-generation HTLS (High Temperature Low Sag) conductors. […]

Securing Power Supply for Transpower’s Auckland and Northland Grid

In order to meet the future power supply needs of New Zealand’s Auckland and Northland regions, a vital part of the 220 kV Otahuhu–Whakamaru A and B transmission lines needed to be replaced. After 68 years of service, the conductor of the Otara to Flatbush section had reached its end of life.  National grid owner […]

Connecting the future of efficient power in Northwest Scotland

Lamifil delivers high-tech ACCC® Conductor for award-winning reconductoring project First commissioned over 70 years ago, you could say a lot has changed since the original high-voltage overhead transmission line was installed between Scotland’s Fort Augustus and Fort William. Marked growth in both the local manufacturing and renewable energy sectors has resulted not only in increased […]

SCE selects Lamifil’s ACCC® Zadar for congested Victor-Hesperia corridor

As part of the Victor-Acqueduct project, Southern California Edison (SCE) upgraded 18km of overhead line in a heavily congested corridor located in the Northeast of the city of Los Angeles. Due to the challenging nature of the location, SCE selected Lamifil’s high-quality and technologically advanced ACCC® Zadar conductor. Increasing line capacity in a challenging location […]

Kent relies on Lamifil ACCC® ICE+ conductors for increased power capacity

The 400kV overhead line that runs between Littlebrook and Kemsley in Kent, UK has been in operation since 1962. And with demand expected to rise over the coming decades, National Grid recently launched a full-scale refurbishment of the line to secure the reliability of supply and anticipate future growth. The EPC contractor Babcock International ultimately […]

Mauritius Metro Express contact wire

Lamifil catenary wires power Mauritius’ first light-railway network

The Mauritius Metro Express light-rail transit system is the first of its kind on the island. Designed to alleviate congestion in and out of the capital, the network already connects Port Louis with the city of Rose Hill. Once fully operational in early 2021, it will also cover the full 26km stretch to Curepipe, serving […]

Securing energy capacity for growing computer data needs

As the need for digital data storage and processing is growing at high speed, large data centres are securing the needed energy capacity to operate systems reliably for years to come. In Belgium, TSO Elia was required to increase the overhead line capacity by a reconductoring project in order to address Crystal Computing’s data centre […]

Alleviating Dhaka’s traffic congestion

Home to around 15 million people, Dhaka is not only the largest city in Bangladesh but also one of the largest and most densely populated cities in the world. So it should come as no surprise that it also has some of the world’s worst traffic congestion. Launched in 2016, the Dhaka Metro Rail project […]
