Nexans liefert die Hochspannungs-Kabelgarnituren für die zweite Phase des internationalen Flughafens Xi'an XianYang in China

Diese HS-Kabelgarnituren werden in der Transformatorenstation des Flughafens eingesetzt.

Paris, February 23rd, 2010 – Nexans, the worldwide leader in the cable industry, has been awarded a major contract by Xi'an XianYang International Airport in China to supply high voltage (HV) cable accessories for the airport’s second phase development. The contract covers the supply of 96 units of Euromold accessories rated at 110 kV installed in the airport’s central power transformer substation.

The accessories, rated at 64/110 (123) kV are designed for use with XLPE power cables with cross-sections of 240 or 400 mm2. They comprise two main types: joints for jointing two cables together and terminations (sealing end) for connecting cables to other power equipment, such as transformers.

“This is an important contract that further reinforces our position as a key supplier of complete cable solutions for Asia’s current boom in airport development projects”, says Paolo Pieri, Nexans Executive Business Developer, Airport project. “It is also a perfect illustration of the broad scope of the Nexans offer for the airport market that covers virtually every need, from data cables, through building cables and airfield lighting cables, to the high voltage power infrastructure”.

The HV cable accessories are manufactured in Switzerland and Belgium, with deliveries scheduled between the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010.

The largest airport serving northwest China

Xi’an XianYang airport, located on the outskirts of Xi’an city, in the province of Shaanxi, first opened in 1991. As the largest airport serving northwest China, it has become established as an important transportation hub, and is now undergoing a major redevelopment to expand its capacity to 11 million passengers per year. This is part of a general boom in airport construction in this area of China taking place between 2008 and 2011. In fact, according to the CAAC (Civil Aviation Administration of China), there are seven airport projects underway in the north and west of the country, including the Xi'an Xiangyang airport expansion.
