Upgraded High Voltage Artery to Bolster Development and Energy Transition in Northern France

The “Avelin-Gavrelle” overhead power line between the cities of Lille and Arras is vital for the energy supply in the North of France. Next to supplying electricity to over 1,7 million inhabitants and 220,000 employees in over 530 municipalities, the 400 kv line constitutes an important link between the European and French national energy grids. […]

Creating Belgium’s high-voltage highway for the future

Lamifil supplied 260 km of AAAC UHC (Ultra-High Conductivity) overhead conductors for a vital and unique backbone upgrade of Belgium’s national grid. Belgium’s national grid operator Elia is continuously developing its high-voltage grid system or ‘backbone’ to support the energy transition and increase interconnectivity within the European grid network. One of the key high-voltage development […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
