All over the world, the need for sustainable energy and reliable electrical grids is growing. Also in the US, we will see a massively increasing demand for our cable solutions, especially to enable the safe and efficient use of renewable energy.  
We have already been selected as preferred supplier for the Champlain Hudson Power Express project, which will transport green energy from Canada to Manhattan.

In addition to our high voltage cable solutions, we are also powering-up other parts of our business in the US, such as our telecom cables.
