Ensuring and facilitating the supply of energy from infrastructure networks
From urbanization to the modernization of energy transport and distribution networks, from infrastructure development in emerging countries to advances in telecommunications, Nexans helps deliver electricity efficiently and securely, and ensures network reliability.
The Group provides secure, readily available solutions for energy infrastructures, railway and road systems, ports and airports, and telecommunications networks.
No matter how demanding the application, Nexans can use its expertise to offer integrated monitoring and control systems that optimize the capacity, improve the reliability and extend the longevity of networks.
The Group also develops overhead power lines that withstand extreme climate conditions at reduced electric fields and improved conductivity, thereby reducing lines losses.
Nexans is clearly involved in the development of smarter grids that reduce the overall consumption of electricity, limit the need for more heavily polluting plants during peak consumption periods and integrate all decentralized sources of renewable energies.
Facilitating access to electricity for local populations
In emerging countries, 1.6 billion people still live without electricity and many of the people who do have access only have a minimal supply of power. In developed countries, numerous isolated regions are without high-speed Internet connections. Nexans is helping overcome this digital divide with highly competitive solutions that motivate operators to develop their networks.
Limiting installation work, preserving biodiversity
Either on its own initiative or upon the request of its customers, Nexans develops innovative cabling solutions that help mitigate the impact of installation projects or simply lessen the effects on the natural or urban environment.
Lightweight, rugged and easy to connect and recycle overhead line aluminum alloy conductors allow us to reduce the number of pylons required for a project by 12% as well as limit their height. This was the solution chosen for the long-range sections of the trans-Amazonian line currently under construction. Superconductor cables are the future for more populated urban environments.
