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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Supporting Spain’s Navarre region in reaching its renewable energy goals

Naturgy Energy Group S.A. (formerly Gas Natural Fenosa), one of Spain’s largest distribution system operators, has completed yet another step in its plans to increase renewable energy generation in the region of Navarre in the northern part of Spain. To accommodate the anticipated >122 MW output of two new windfarms, the company recently finished the […]

Connecting the Netherlands with a sustainable future

As a first step in the wider reconductoring initiative dubbed “Beter Benutten Bestaande 380kV net” (Making Better Use of the Existing 380kV grid), transmission system operator TenneT chose Lamifil’s industry-leading ACCC® Conductor to replace its Lelystad-Ens line. This is the first time next-generation HTLS (High Temperature Low Sag) conductors will be used on a 380kV […]

Managing summer peak demand fluctuations in Croatia

With peak loads in the summer tourist season nearly double those of the off-season, Croatia’s distribution system operator HEP – ODS d.o.o., Elektrodalmacija Split faces significant challenges to safeguard network security and satisfy the necessary n-1 criteria. Renowned for their superior performance, efficiency and versatility, Lamifil’s industry-leading ACCC conductors were chosen to increase the capacity […]

Helping Serbia reach its renewable energy targets

Given that the majority of the line connecting Serbia’s Košava with Alibunar dates back to 1966, it comes as little surprise that it was no longer up to the task of distributing the power generated by the latter’s new 42MW wind farm. In choosing Lamifil’s state-of-the-art ACCC Helsinki conductor for the reconductoring project, Elektromreža Srbije […]
