Supported by EPC firms Tecnerga and Emte Empresa de Montagem (EMTE), E-REDES (formerly EDP) installed Amsterdam size ACCC® Conductor on their double circuit Famalicao (REN) Lousado I e II 60 kV transmission line adjacent to the City of Porto, in northeast Portugal.
E-REDES, once again, selected ACCC® Conductor to increase capacity and reduce thermal sag on their existing (and slightly extended) 5.1 kilometer power line. The ACCC® Conductor’s higher strength, greater efficiency and resistance to salt air corrosion were also considered to be very favorable advantages for this application.
The ACCC® Conductor for this project was manufactured by FUX and ACCC® Hardware was provided by PLP. CTC Global’s Master Installer, Ismael Dones was on site to provide training and support. This is E-REDES’ 8th successful ACCC® Conductor installation in Portugal since 2009.
