It is a cable for use in photovoltaic installations, with cross-linked polyethylene insulation (XLPE). In addition, it is designed to operate at a maximum of 2000 V and complies with the flame retardant test (VW-1).
Prysmian Group offers complete cable solutions to enable the production and supply of solar photovoltaic power.
In addition to Solar PV cables, Prysmian Group’s product portfolio includes low, medium and high voltage cables according to the most known standards of each region, as well as special cables for communication and control. Prysmian Group offers also electrical asset monitoring solutions based on PRY-CAM, the revolutionary technology for on-line, accurate and reliable partial discharge measurement, diagnosis and defect localization.
The choice of components is critical in any PV system. Good quality and properly sized cables provide optimized safety and longer-lasting systems.
Solar PV cables are often exposed to harsh environmental conditions: UV radiation, moisture, temperature fluctuations as well as wind, snow and rain. Inadequate or low-quality cables can deteriorate quickly, thus reducing a system’s power generation capacity and, therefore, its revenues. Every KW lost in generation due to poor quality cables is a loss in terms of return on investment.
Cables are one of the first components of a system to show failures, causing power generation disruptions and implying high replacement costs related not only to the replacement of cables, but also, and mostly, to the works required, and the possible collateral damages to panels or other components.
To meet an ever-growing need for power, the world is increasingly turning to renewable and sustainably sourced solar energy. Prysmian Group’s Sungen cables are helping businesses in the renewable industry around the globe to convert this opportunity into reality.
Our technologies – which cover cables used in photovoltaic plants – support the operations of contractors and developers, grid operators, transmission and distribution system operators and panel makers.
Always aware of our responsibility to the planet, we are constantly driving innovation in our industry, aiming to help renewable industry partners deliver projects with benefits for the future of both our world and their businesses.
Prysmian Group is world leader in the energy and telecommunications cable systems industry. No matter how large, we are always present to serve both our global and our local customers and business partners. In order to offer bespoke and tailor-made solutions, we appreciate the importance of understanding local pre-conditions and special needs.
