To support Iberdrola’s new combined cycle natural gas electric power plant and adjacent 230 kV substation, Iberdrola, with the help of Grupo Grytsa and El Roble Construction, completed the installation of 47 kilometers of Drake size ACCC Conductor on the new double-circuit, double-bundled 230 kV Topolobampo transmission line and 230 kV substation at Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico.
ACCC Conductor for the project was provided by Conductores Monterrey (Viakon) and hardware was supplied by PLP Mexico. CTC Global’s Master Installers Sergio Rojas and Ismael Dones provided installation support along with Eduardo Reyna from Viakon.
Iberdrola’s new power plant will produce roughly 665 MW, which will help CFE accommodate growing demand for electric energy in the region. ACCC® Conductor Installations will help ensure reliability and efficiency in the coming years.

What is the cost comparison with other conductor type
ACCC Conductor is about 2.5 times more expensive than ACSR, but much less expensive than other novel conductors. Generally, the ACCC Conductor reduces upfront capital costs and lifecycle costs dramatically, which is why it is selected much more often than alternatives.
What ACCC stands for
ACCC® is a registered trademark of CTC Global. Initially it was an acronym for “Aluminum Conductor Composite Core,” but as a registered trademark, that no longer is the case. Thanks
