Earlier this month Energias de Portugal (EDP) installed 725 kcmil Amsterdam size ACCC® Conductor on their Gala – Vila Robim 66 kV transmission line very close to the Ocean adjacent to the City of Figuiera de Foz, in north west Portugal. ACCC Conductor was selected for its high strength, improved efficiency, reduced sag and resistance to salt air corrosion.
This project was supported by contractor Tecnerga and Helenos and CTC Global’s Master Installer Ismael Dones offered remote and on-site training. Fux provided the ACCC Conductor and Arruti Spain provided ancillary ACCC Hardware. This project marks EDP’s 5th successful ACCC Conductor installation.
