Here at NKT, we pride ourselves on providing cutting-edge solutions for power networks. But it’s a fact of life that older technologies don’t just disappear when something cutting edge is invented. That’s why we produced a range of medium voltage cable accessories for connecting and joining legacy paper-insulated lead sheath cables (PILC). Most power networks in large cities are still dependent on PILC technology and, thanks to these ingenious cable accessories, NKT can help them to operate safely and reliably for many years to come.
These days, oil-impregnated paper-insulated cables have largely been replaced by more modern XLPE cables. Where legacy cables still exist, high-quality cable accessories are needed that can joint paper cables and make transitions between the existing PILC and to new plastic or rubber-insulated cables.
