Before the actual work onsite began, we built a full-scale tunnel model. The installation simulations conducted in the tunnel model guaranteed a subsequent perfect fit of all the components and ensured trouble-free onsite installation. During the preparation work, we also developed a special tunnel vehicle and installed steel support systems for smooth cable routing.
A great result of the intensive cooperation with our customer was a cable design characterised by minimal transmission losses and extremely low electromagnetic emissions.
We produced the cable system in our state-ofthe-art factory in Cologne, Germany. The cables had a length of 1100 m per drum and a total weight of 60 tonnes, and we managed to transport them across Europe from Cologne to London on extra wide drums specifically developed for this purpose.
To maximize the transfer potential, the cable was cross-bonded and implemented. A monitoring system helped ensuring maximum safety and full availability of electrical energy. Thanks to our extensive knowledge, strict preparations and collaborative skills, this project was a complete success.
