On December 2, 2022, the reinforced high-voltage interconnection between Avelin in France and Avelgem in Belgium, was officially inaugurated. A joint project by French grid operator RTE and Belgian grid operator Elia, this upgraded 380kV line doubles the electricity transmission capacity between France and Belgium from 3 to 6GW. A big step for both countries […]
“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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
The latest generation of GAP conductors are now here, offering radical new improvements.
By upgrading the existing ACSR conductor to an AAAC UHC Bobolink conductor we were able to reduce energy losses by 19%, resulting in an estimated annual saving of 678.000 euro.
The ACCC Oslo conductor with the highest cost actually proved to be the most cost-effective solution.
